ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Since the release of his first demo tape in 1994, singer-songwriter Andrew D. Huber has been steadily gaining national recognition for his unique blend of driving acoustic pop, haunting melodies, and pensive lyrics.

In the past 9 years, Andrew has performed at clubs, coffee-houses, theaters, and other venues throughout the Midwest, including the infamous Fine Line Music Cafe in Minneapolis, MN. Radio support has also followed, with college markets extending from the Midwest to the Washington D.C. area featuring Andrew1s songs in their scheduled programming. Several radio stations, including WRFW in River Falls, WI and WESN in Bloomington, IL furthered their support by featuring interviews and live performances with Andrew during their 3spotlight2 program hours.

Aside from performing as an acoustic solo artist, Andrew is also the singer/songwriter/guitarist for the Gecko Club, an electric power-pop band with a folk twist. The Gecko Club is currently recording a follow-up to their debut cd -- Tokens, Trash, or Tarot Cards -- which was independently released in February, 2000. Response from fans and critics alike has been outstanding, likening Andrew1s songs to the finer moments of bands such as the Goo Goo Dolls, the Posies, the Psychadelic Furs, Robyn Hitchcock, and the Connells.

In 2003, Andrew released his first solo cd -- the folk-rock "Ten Songs from the Side Room". A natural extension of the highly electric Gecko Club sound, the album highlights his folkier side with a spotlights on his acoustic guitar playing and lyrical strengths. The songs are well written, well-performed, and bound to draw comparisons to artists like John Hiatt, Peter Himmelman, Dar Williams, and Billy Pilgrim.

Regardless of whether he is performing with the Gecko Club or as an acoustic solo artist, Andrew is continually recognized as an up-and-coming songwriter who captivates the audience with the melodic strength of his music, the evocative nature of his lyrics, and the overall sincerity of his songs.

completely listenable
This album drew me in a bit. The songs are short and shamelessly rely on catchy melodies. The guitar playing is adept and the vocals ring pretty & clear. Lyrics are a little perplexing at times, but that may be intentional - kind of like a movie with a real-life ending. If the stark lyric and production of track #2 ("Celebrity") doesn't move you, you may be dead. My other favorite was "First Ten Year", which laments missing the big high school reunion -- sort of. Have not heard the Gecko Club's album (his electric band I guess?) but this one is pretty damn good.

Up-close, personal, and honest music
The great storytelling lyrics of Micheal McDermott combined with the multi-instrumentalist talents of Robert Johnson (the other RJ). Something for everyone. Check this CD out!

Cool music, great cover
Not being that much of a big fan of this genre (more of a classical listener I guess) I thought some of these songs were pretty cool. Overall a good purchase -- the picture on the cover is worth the cost alone! -- Charlotte S.

A friend of mine recommended the song "superhero" to me while I was going through a rough time......ended up loving the whole album......"I am no superhero, and I will never be so blessed" kinda says it all.

Great Review from Music Morsels!
Andrew D. Huber - Ten Songs From the Side Room
Singer/songwriter/guitarist for the band Gecko Club, Andrew D. Huber's first solo album melds folkish melodies with styles ranging from mellow country in "Celebrity" to the atmospheric "London" and rollicking "Favorite Local Bar." Andrew's voice gains notice right away with it's pleasing timber fueled by a sort of ambient power. Solid lyrics and the talent and desire to do things a bit different bode well here.

Get Your Mellow On
Andrew D. Huber • Ten Songs From The Side Room • self-released • You know how you need a shot of sake after a sushi bender? Well, after you've digested all the punk and hardcore in your CD collection, let Andrew Huber clean your palette. His soft acoustic songs are right from the pages of James Taylor and Dan Fogelberg, and he even gets a little rockin' and twangy on tracks like "Tearin' Me Down." Get your mellow on. (SH)
