Welcome James DaSilva – New Drummer!


We are happy to announce that James DaSilva is Andre’s new drummer.

“After more than a month of auditions, I am happy to welcome drummer extraordinaire James DaSilva into the band. I can’t wait for all of you to hear him breathe new life into the songs!
I want to thank everyone who came and gave it a shot. We had way more drummers than I could have hoped for. You were all great, came prepared and were so respectful of my music that I can’t really thank you enough. You guys made my life miserable trying to pick just one of you!
But we are so excited to have Jimmy with us and look forward to taking the songs to stage near you very soon!”

Andre and the band are busy rehearsing to take Lights and Shadows and all of his music on the road very soon. Check back for details and Follow us on Facebook for all the news!

Guitar9 Interview

newg9headerAndre recently did an interview with the great Dan McAvinchey of Guitar9.com about being an independent musician and producer, Lights and Shadows, and other interesting aspects of playing this beautiful instrument!

” The advantages are the usual ones: creative freedom, career control, owning your own masters. But there is a risk with being an independent musician, and that is that you get so lost in your own freedom that you end up with a career that isn’t going anywhere.”
