about

Andy has spent time writing and arranging music for a variety of different bands and these songs are the best of the best. No fillers. Time tested, performance approved. Each song is suited with the nastiest musicians and engineer around. Recorded at MDW Production Studios in Harrisburg, PA. Musicians include Gabe Staznik, Mike Wittrien, Andy Alonso, Andy Roberts, Aaron Trasatt, Dave Yinger, Mike Yinger, Max Swan, Michael Druck, John Stoudt, to name a few. Artwork by Kurt Hershey.

"There are no longer means to an end, but only an end to the means".

Finally, an album that plays itself! The full-length effort will consist of mostly original compositions with a few twists on some modern classics. The featured track is Beyonce's hit "Love on Top", re-arranged for the band "Steely Jam". "An End To The Means" is a damn smooth crunchy awesome tight eclectic inspiring fulfilling artistic unique energizing easy creative and nostalgic experience.
