andre_slider-2.jpg

GRAMMY Nominated, Andre Thierry is a phenomenal talent who has been capturing the attention of other musicians and music lovers since he was a toddler. Andre’s French Creole heritage is deeply rooted in Louisiana although he was born and reared in northern California. Michael Tisserand, author of The Kingdom of Zydeco, considered the definitive book on the history of Zydeco music, wrote, “In America, great migrations produce great music. Just as Delta musicians took Highway 61 to Chicago and electrified their blues, so did the Creoles and Cajuns migrate to California and establish vital dance communities. Now the California scenes rival anything back home in Louisiana, and that’s due to players like Andre Thierry, a standard bearer for the new generation. Thierry is among the best of both the West Coast and the Gulf Coast, and he combines youthful vigor with a mature appreciation for his inherited tradition.”

897b92212e38b6606c0ba2ce1efd4b3d.jpeg

"Most of these songs come from personal experiences and many were written in very dark times. My goal in writing music is to bring forth emotion and maybe even some healing. Sometimes we just need someone to identify with and that understands our situation. When you can't find a way to put the situation into words, maybe one of my songs can. As a cross-over artist my music commonly has a faith based message behind it but it can be interpreted many different ways. This first album is a collection of my own work covering a variety of subject matter. I hope it speaks to you."

Jessica Johnson Band: Friday, September 2nd @ 7pm

In 2015 Jessica traveled to Hawaii to shoot the video to "Love is Real", a perfect back drop for this island and reggae influenced single. Both the song and video are available for purchase on iTunes and you can check out the "Love is Real" video on VEVO and YouTube.

I have enjoyed most genres of music since I was a kid.  I bought my first guitar at 10 years-old, and was introduced to all kinds of music including folk, blues, jazz, and classical.  However, my love of music has been seated in what I call “easy listening Rock and Roll".
