The only son of a classical guitarist and a jazz pianist, AndrĂ©s was named after his fatherâ€™s idol, the famed classical guitarist AndrĂ©s Segovia. It would only be years later that the latent kismet of his name would manifest itself in his muscular yet singing guitar style. The sounds of Hector Villa-Lobos, Herbie Hancock, 50â€™s rock, Frank Sinatra, and Son House (his grandparentsâ€™ favorite artist) coexisted peacefully in his New England home. After picking up the guitar at the age of thirteen and practicing over six hours a day, by the age of sixteen, he was touring New England and NYC with his mother and earning a reputation as the best young lead guitar player in Boston, a bona fide prodigy, through his work in metal and hardcore bands like Tribal Demise and 69 Days. He also became a fixture at Boston blues jams and hung out with all the punk rockers. But it was always the unique sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Buckley, Nirvana, Stevie Ray Vaughn and other artists that broke the mold that summoned his ears to listen. After graduating from Lawrence Academy, where he was the recipient of graduation awards for music and writing, Andres received a scholarship to attend the Berklee College of Music in Boston where he completed a summa cum laude B.M. in the Professional Music major (Fall 03â€™). A true cosmopolitan who has spent much time abroad and speaks several languages fluently, Andres has also studied classics, linguistics, and creative writing at colleges and universities around the globe.
The music of Andres Wilson & The Waters blends his myriad of influences into intense, melodic, and richly poetic songs where AndrĂ©sâ€™s supple crooning voice rises and soars over the always-bluesy thrashing of inventive harmonies from his guitar. Sinuous, violin-like guitar lines embellish head bobbing grooves with inventive pulchritude. Listen to the debut album Ink & Sound (2006) and stomp along with the infectious groove of the funky first single â€śA Million Milesâ€ť. Some songs give glimpses of the teen metal-head wailing away in his room to tribal, throbbing rhythms (â€śEl Doradoâ€ť & â€śPoverty and Resourceâ€ť). Others flirt with mainstream pop sensibilities and unforgettable hooks (â€śThe Woodsâ€ť, â€śLittle Islandâ€ť, â€śHomeâ€ť), and still others nod to Wilsonâ€™s diverse ancestry and cultural experiences embracing pure Mississippi, porch-stomping blues (â€śInk & Soundâ€ť), Middle-Eastern modes and rhythms, and Celtic folk music. High-energy live shows are defined by jaw-dropping instrumental heroics, soul, and moments of vocal transcendence. His lyrics are full of rich imagery and illuminating symbols, impressionistic but easily deciphered by careful listeners. AndrĂ©s sings about alienation, our moments of color within the gray, and the epiphanies one experiences as life untangles like a roll of yarn. Every track is elevated by the first-class musicianship of The Waters (Louis Ochoa-bass, Asia Mei-keys/backing vocals, Hiroshi Sembon-drums, and Graham Nelson-harmonica).
Andres has performed in venues throughout New England, New York. Paris, MontrĂ©al, and
Israel. He also plays guitar for Asia Mei and does various session work. He has won several gui-tar and songwriting competitions. He is poised to make the world listen to a unique but thor-oughly bluesy sound that must be heard.
