With a number of indie-rock anthems already in his repertoire, singer-songwriter Andy Keels is back with his first release of the year in the form of “Caroline” – ushering in his debut EP 15 Years.
With a constant desire and energy to create, Andy headed to the prolific Germano Studios in New York with Grammy winning engineer and producer, Dave Rowland (The Killers, Kanye West, Justin Bieber, John Legend) to refine his back catalogue of sounds. Taking a gentler approach than his usual boisterous guitar hooks, “Caroline” is soft and sweet – candidly exploring grief with refreshing intimacy.
“‘Caroline’ is a heartfelt indie/pop ballad, full of soft piano melodies and luscious string sections”, Andy explains. “The song was inspired by a friend’s young daughter battling cancer. On a broader level it’s about love and loss in general.”
Building an accomplished reputation for himself within the industry, Keels first made his mark on the music scene as the drummer, singer, and songwriter in pop/rock band, Twen2y4se7en. Over the years, he has also amassed an array of live experience, touring the UK with the likes of Westlife, McFly, Blue, and Sugababes.
Already drawing support from Mystic Sons, Music Crowns, Pop Dose Magazine and This Song Is So Sick, Andy’s debut project is a natural cumulation of his craft – an expressive and deeply personal body of work.
