ANDREW DUNN / MAY 5TH
Andrew Dunn is a songwriter from Jersey, where talent seems to grow in the fertile soil. His poignant wit and infectious melodies are staples of his canon of memorable story songs drawn from everyday theater of life moments. Raised in the Raritan Valley of central New Jersey, he spent years playing trumpet for school marching band before discovering the acoustic guitar and songwriting in his late teens.
Finding his instrument, he quickly found his network and graduated from Rowan University with a music education degree while trading notes, swapping songs and gigging with rising folk singers of the time, Antje Duvekot, Jackie Tice and Gregg Cagno, among others. He was an invited participant on the songwriting compilation, Southside Sunday Nights, Vol. 1, which included John Gorka, the preeminent songwriter of that time. Andrew spent over a decade as a school music teacher while honing his passion for rock and roll, country and folk into an acoustic folk-pop sound all his own.
