Andrew Scott's folky bluesy gypsy, alt-country blend is a unique and exciting sound. His songs are a strange mix of storytelling and eccentric mad ramblings. Imagine Tom Waits, Neil Young, Robert Johnson, Johnny Cash and Cormac McCarthy all mangled up in the same horrifying car crash. Zang! Born and raised in Grande Prairie, Alberta. In 2002 Andrew moved to Lethbridge Alberta to study music and education at the University of Lethbridge. During this time he ended up being the energetic frontman for a very popular local group called The Turncoats.
