Canadian producer, songwriter and remixer Andrew McPherson is in it for the long haul. 30 years into a music career that began with classical studies, Andrew has cultivated a significant voice in the world of production, composition and performance. Widely known for his Juno-nominated world fusion project Eccodek, Andrew's restless musical appetite has opened many collaborative doors with the likes of Vieux Farka Touré, Jane Siberry, Desert Dwellers, Kiran Ahluwalia, Philosopher Kings, Dub Colossus, MC Yogi, Delhi 2 Dublin, Stephen Fearing, Deva Premal and more. He has released 7 recordings under the Eccodek banner, 4 solo albums, a film score and his recently debuted ambient project, Peppermoth 'Now You Hear Me'.
2017 marks a return to the spotlight with the release of Andrew's 4th solo album, Bardo. A sprawling mix of folk, prog, ambient and rock, Bardo frames his commanding and soulful baritone over a lyrical narrative examining loss, war, madness and life as an artistic manifesto. A painstakingly crafted album, Andrew has dug deep into his production skills and songcraft, with amped up guitars, synths and drums in one direction, and quiet ambient folk in the other. Joining Andrew are Kevin Breit (Norah Jones, KD Lang), Jeff Bird (Cowboy Junkies, Natalie Merchant), Morgan Doctor (Kevin Drew, Andy Kim), Adam Bowman (Alysha Brilla, Ember Swift) and Marc De Vos (Eccodek, Liquidaires).
Over the years, Andrew's music has been released on labels including Six Degrees, Real World, White Swan, Black Swan Sounds, Buddha Bar, Supperclub, Modiba, National Geographic and more, with critical press from The Boston Globe, Toronto Star, Huffington Post, Exclaim!, Stereogum, Pop Matters, Toronto Sun and CBC Canada.
Andrew also leads a busy life as a voice actor, anchoring campaigns for companies like Leon's, Lipton's, Dr Oetker, Becel, HSBC, Nikon, Labatt’s, Toronto Star, Kraft, TD Canada. Andrew is currently the network announcer for HGTV and DIY Network.
He also operates The Monastereo, a full production studio built in 2013, on his property in Guelph Canada, where he produces both his own work and the many remixes and productions he has guided.
