I’m Not Falling Asleep by Andy Shauf

It was the winter of 2008 when I first heard Andy Shauf. I remember it because his album Darker Days was the first album I ever purchased on iTunes. That album carried me through a confusing season in Florida and since then I’ll put it on infrequently when I remember it. There’s something about Andy, and maybe it’s that element of nostalgia I carry from my days down South but I love the sound of his voice, and I just think his songs are fantastic.

I just noticed that he is on tour with another favorite (relatively new) artist named Jordan Klassen and they’ll be playing a string of dates this week at CMW. Better yet – he’s got a new EP out that I have been playing on repeat for most of the day. It’s called “Sam Jones Feeds His Demons” and it’s such a beautiful growth from the summery pop love songs of Darker Days. There’s more of that contemplative Elliot Smith to it. I highly recommend you give this EP a listen, because it is worthy of some attention. I think I’ll always be a fan of Shauf’s music – there’s something familiar about it, the way he pronounces his words, the harmonies, the simplicity of it all. Be sure to listen to Victoria below.
