Andy Gabbard is a singer/songwriter/multi instrumentalist from Dayton, Ohio, who plays with Buffalo Killers, a band that he founded with his brother Zachary. He is also a former member of Thee Shams, a garage rock band that he joined when he was seventeen.
Andy’s solo work has been compared to the usual suspects: Brian Wilson (who praised his recent EP of Beach Boys covers), Neil Young, Syd Barrett, The Beatles, and even Dinosaur Jr. and Nirvana. But his sophomore album Plenum Castle is a departure from the straightforward fuzz pop of his debut effort Fluff (he actually performed all the instruments on that one). This new album goes deeper in the pop, playing with new sounds and styles, and showcasing a skillfulness in songwriting.
