Andy Shauf’s new album The Neon Skyline ..is presented in full storytelling concept.
The interconnected songs were all written, performed, arranged and produced by Andy, and follow a simple plot: the narrator goes to his neighborhood dive, finds out his ex is back in town, and she eventually shows up.
Some of his characters can be found in his last album The Party. All are sympathetic people who share countless inside jokes, shots, and life-or-death musings when the night gets hazy.
It just happens to be one of the best albums I’ve heard in quite a while. The delight in the songs may not reveal themselves on first listen but the second time..the puzzle starts to show itself.
Please enjoy this chat with a true star in the making…if he wants to go down that road.
