Here are some assorted videos I've collected over the last 6 months while I've been recording and mixing my first EP. I'm very happy about the way everything has come out and I'm excited to share it with you!! Here are some juicy morsels to whet your appetite!
Cabin Fever. It's real, and it's spreading it's icy grip far and wide across the Merrimack Valley. After months of snowy seclusion there is only one sure-fire cure for this disease. Come on down to historic downtown Lowell and receive your personal vaccination of hot-damn rock and roll from the Andrew Martin Machine! It won't hurt a bit and I will even give you a lollipop when I'm done.
The music runs from 8-9:15pm. Featuring Drs. David Shrewsbury, Judd Fedenszyn Erin Martin and David Bickel, MDs.

This Saturday (1/10/15) I'm excited to be back again at the Back Page in Lowell! This time, I will be playing an hour-long opening set in front of Soft Cactus. Don't be fooled by their name; there's nothing soft about this... um, cactus. They are four great musicians turgid and needled with a green-layered mix of jamband, rock, and jazz.
Insomniacs of greater Boston! This Thursday night I'm playing a double-bill with the absurdly talented Castle Creek. Castle Creek are an awesome blooozy-roots-rockin-country-fried' band from upstate New York, and they are going to be hitch hiking a ride down on the polar vortex to melt your frost bitten faces off! Castle Creek plays from 10:30 to 11:30, and then yours truly will be playing a special solo acoustic set until close.
Thurs. Nov 20th 10:30 - 12:30 (Andrew plays from 11:40 - 12:40) The Plough and Stars 912 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA http://www.ploughandstars.com
This Saturday, I'm excited to be back again at the Back Page in Lowell! This time, I will be playing an hour long opening set in front of the Jenni Lynn Band. Jenni is a local singer with some seriously bluesy pipes! http://www.jennilynnband.comIt's shaping up to be a great night of music!!
We play from 8-9pm. It's free to get in the door, but once you've had a taste of my opiate strong guitar licks, you'll be paying for a fix for the rest of your life!!
Or something like that. See you Saturday!!

I've just picked up a last minute gig doing a solo acoustic set tonight at TT the Bear's in Cambridge. Come and see me attempt to interpret my dinosaur rock catalog with only a microphone, acoustic guitar and stool (the stool is optional). The music starts @ 9pm.
9:00pm - 10:00pm TT the Bear's Place 10 Brookline Street Cambridge, Ma www.ttthebears.com
I'm excited to have landed a gig at the Back Page in Lowell! The Back Page is an intimately cool place to come and see live music. The room soudns great, the beer selection is good, and there's no cover. What more could you ever want? Come on down for a drink and start your weekend one night early!
Hopefully all the sweet, sweet dinosaur rock doesn't serenade a lock monster or two out of hibernation and into a hot-blooded, cross-town conquest for coitus.
Featuring David Bickel on drums and Judd Fedenyszn on bass.

It't been a while since I've posted any new demos, so I am exited to have one for my latest song 'A Terrible Thing to Waste.' It's a self-deprecatingly iron paean to the American dream. (Doesn't every songwriter have at least one of these songs?)
