“I believe in spreading positive music and see the influence of that with every performance.”
Not your ordinary acoustic guitarist. No loops. No electronic trickery.
Andrew Kasab is a guitarist, harp guitarist and singer-songwriter. He is known for energetic performances, using traditional and contemporary techniques, arrangements of modern and older works across a wide spectrum of styles for the guitar and harp guitar and has been performing for over 30 years. Andrew is a BMI artist and is endorsed by K&K Sound and Timberline Guitars.
“Big stages are fun, but I love the intimate, right-next-to-your-audience shows. There’s nothing quite like making jokes with folks while entertaining the pants off them.” Traveling extensively throughout the United States, Andrew has forged fans and connections everywhere, from small towns in the middle of nowhere to the larger cities. “The truly best thing is to keep running into great people everywhere, it really is fantastic.”
Andrew grew up in Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C., on an ever-widening menu of music, ranging from classical to roots and everything in between. From starting on guitar at an early age and performing in venues as a teenager, he embraced the wonderment that comes from composing and arranging music. “When I was younger, I was fortunate to study with a variety of teachers that gave me insight into classical, blues, jazz, country, rock and more. I have always incorporated self-teaching as well and still strive to learn more about different genres and styles and how they can influence me on my instruments.”
He is known for exhibiting the subtle beauty of harmonic resonance that can be patiently pulled alongside of blistering works full of fiery energy from his instruments. Andrew is a modern folk artist who believes in being successful rather than famous. Playing shows big and small, self-recording multiple albums and working hard to create his music, Andrew’s most favorite thing to hear from venue owners and audience patrons is that they felt uplifted by his positive music and energy.
“My hope is that I am making a difference and contribution to the world for the better with my talents.”
