Album Notes
Andre Thierry is a phenomenal talent who has been capturing the attention of musicians and music lovers from an early age.

Born in Richmond, California into a family deeply rooted in Louisiana French-Creole history, Thierry is among the best of both the West Coast and the Gulf Coast musicians playing Zydeco music today. Andre is a virtuoso on all the accordion types, single row, double row, triple row and piano key. He effortlessly plays each instrument to deliver everything from a traditional Creole waltz to a hard driving blues that is his own sound.

The San Francisco Bay Area, which is home to some of the best blues musicians in the world, presented Andre Thierry and Zydeco Magic with the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame award for “Best Zydeco Group” in 2008 and 2012.

Andre continually raises the bar for Zydeco musicians worldwide. In his early thirties he's already one of the most well respected musicians in his field.

Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic captures the attention of music lovers captivates the soul. If you like to dance, Andre will have you moving all night long!

An Education from Zydeco's finest...You Ain't Ready!! This CD is too hot!
I just purchased Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic’s new CD from CD Baby and I must say it is amazing! Andre gives us a real zydeco education right here, in all its forms – from the hot title track “Are You Ready To Learn” to the traditional “Day By Day”, the elegant waltz “You Put A Spell On Me” and the funk infused “Steppin’ Ahead”. There is also plenty for the swing out and blues audience and of course, a few for those who like to shuffle. I couldn’t name a favorite track if I tried - I love each song for different reasons! “Are You Ready To Learn” reveals Andre’s true genius as an accordion master, song writer and producer. Cannot wait to hear what’s next from this man on the rise!


Pure Artistry from the Zydeco Master
An eclectic mix of pure artistry, Thierry has outdone himself with AYRTL! Setting himself apart from many of today’s young zydeco artists, Thierry remains true to his French “la-la” roots while incorporating nouveau zydeco, blues and who knew he was a balladeer! Personality and charm abound on every track; he takes you on the journey. The musical arrangements and vocal runs are bursting with flavor and artistic excellence. I so appreciate when talented artists like Thierry write their own lyrics because you can tell it’s all from the heart - the authenticity tugs at your soul, the way music should, and affirms how serious this dude is about his music. I’ve watched this artist evolve since we were both teenagers. When one puts his heart and soul into something for more than 20 yrs., you can definitely consider them a pro, but Thierry has set the bar extremely high with “Are You Ready to Learn to Learn” – a whole new level of EXCELLENCE! There’s something for everyone on this one. Get it – it’s infectious, so you can’t help but love it!
