Andrew Weathers (b.1988) is a composer and improviser originally from Chapel Hill, NC and currently based in Littlefield, TX. His work engages with notions of place, tradition, repetition, and spirit. Weathers studied composition at UNC-Greensboro and electronic music at Mills College in Oakland, CA.
A consistent presence in the underground music scene over the past decade, Weathers’ work covers a wide spectrum from solo acoustic guitar to electronic noise. He also performs and records regularly with Tethers, Real Life Rock & Roll Band, Tender Crust, Satin Spar, Llano Estacado Monad Band and in long-running collaborations with Seth Chrisman and tanner menard, among others. In addition to his busy performing schedule, Weathers helps run the Full Spectrum and Other Minds record labels, curates the Longitudes music series at CO-OPt Research + Projects in Lubbock, TX and works as a freelance mixing and mastering engineer.
Andy McLeod is an experimental musician and gardener living in Staunton, VA. His primary instrument is the acoustic guitar, but he incorporates many instruments into his original tunes, improvisations, and interpretations of the works of others. With quite a bit of work under his belt already, including a record on the estimable Dying For Bad Music label, it will be exciting to see him continue to explore, expand, and refine his already heady sound and approach. In his own words, his latest album 'Mug Hummies' "is a combination of acoustic drone music and fingerstyle guitar adaptations of traditional gospel hymns, original composition and some early Hawaiian music.
