I love you. You love me. We're a happy family.
Twenty-five year old Andy Sydow already has a lot to talk about in his young music career. He has become widely respected in the local Colorado scene for his richly detailed songwriting, blistering slide guitar playing and surprising boogie-woogie piano chops. He has opened for luminaries Tab Benoit, Delbert McClinton, Dick Dale, Samantha Fish, Dave and Tommy Malone, Chris Duarte, Tinsley Ellis, Bob Margolin, and Johnny Hickman (of Cracker). He has also toured nationally with his band and played at festivals including Jazz Aspen Snowmass and Snowy Range Music Festival. He has been nominated several times for Colorado Blues Society Members Choice Awards for his songwriting and piano playing.
Sydow received his Bachelors of Science in Piano Performance from the University of Colorado at Denver in 2013. Upon graduation, he began playing at a dueling piano bar in downtown Denver as well as playing residencies in Cherry Creek and Aurora. At the end of 2013 he began teaching private lessons and group ensembles at Castle Rock Music. Going into 2017, Sydow has a full tour schedule with his band. He can also be seen several times a month playing solo piano at the Summit Steakhouse in Aurora. His newest release, A Little Messed Up came out on October 22, 2016.
