NYC based indie-pop artist Andrew Smith just released his shining new single entitled “Magic Mess.” Known for his piano-driven songs that ooze with emotion and vulnerability, Andrew has made a name for himself as an important figure in the LGBTQ+ community.
In “Magic Mess,” Andrew opens up about his struggle in finding his own identity while giving a special thanks to all his friends and loved ones who have been by his side supporting him. Paying tribute to the “people who applaud you for being you,” Smith reveals, “I had so many beautiful people cheering for me as I fell on my face. They dusted me off again and again. This song is really about people who applaud you for being you. I’ve always been a very clean-cut person, and the song is also about leaning into your wrinkles, messing up your hair, choosing the t-shirt over the tie.” The song was co-written by Jackson Hoffman and Ryder Stuart and features glittering synths, funky basslines, and flowy, vibrant indie-pop vocals.
Andrew Smith is a Boston native who is classically trained in theatre and at Berklee, aiming to create songs to better understand his complex feelings and emotions.
The songwriter confides, “Many of my songs are born of reflections I have about my life or discoveries made in therapy, etc.”
