Based in Australia, Chapman Stick player Andy Salvanos first reached a global audience as a street musician, and now has a steadily growing listener base online.
Swedish-born Salvanos has also performed at events such as the Adelaide Guitar Festival and the National Folk Festival, and worked as a bassist with Australia's leading indigenous songwriter Archie Roach on The Tracker (OST). In a world of sound-alikes, Andy's music occupies its own lush, melodic space, which can be heard in a number of local and international film soundtracks. This year's releases include the haunting Ice Fishing Alone on Yellow Rose Records, Lily with Denis Turbide, and a new collaboration with Jesse Brown called Woodbridge, which was featured on Apple Music's "Piano Chill" playlist. His latest singles are "All Time" with guitarist Elson Complex, and the ambient piece Ikara with Eyolf. Andy is passionate about making music accessible to everyone, and continues to perform live as much as possible in 2020, including streaming on his Facebook page.
