Lake Mary, Florida - Andrew Phegley’s young life was a musical adventure. Ever since he picked up the guitar at the age of 11 years old, a light ignited in him. He wanted to learn more because the sound and the techniques intrigued him. Learning how to express your emotions and thoughts through an instrument is what he wanted to do.
Andrew worked with many bands working as the audio engineer at Davey’s Uptown Rambler’s Club in Kansas City, Mo.
He was good at what he did and the artists were drawn to him. He also worked with touring Broadway show’s as the audio engineer to capture the essence of the drama, whatever it was. And yet, every once in a while, he would pick up his guitar and play with thoughts that someday he would play like Joe Satriani.
Andrew has many musical influences such as Guns ‘n Roses, Opeth, Alison Krauss and more. But what truly drove him are the sound tracks to movies. Whether it was dramatic, innocent or evil, writing and recording compositions for movies, TV and commercials became the goal. This is where his talent explodes. Listening to Andrew’s compositions you would clearly understand why the focus is on this part of the entertainment industry. When he writes a piece, it is like telling a story – a movie short. There is a beginning, middle and end. The story is told full circle – and this is just from the music itself. Give Andrew a story line, a scene in a movie, and he’ll deliver exactly what it needs.
One of Andrew’s tracks is called, “Life’s Lessons”. This piece reflects his daily routine at the local hospital where he sees tragedy upon tragedy with a few miracles in the mix. The texture of this piece is heavy and very dramatic with a heavy electrical guitar speaking for him, telling the story of his life in the emergency room.
(Released in 2008 as part of “Life’s lessons” EP).
Every piece he writes has a unique title and such a different style, sound and texture because it represents different moments and emotions which may not have any emotional connection to anything in particular. Titles like “Walking Sideways” or “Confusion” are clever in that these titles reflect a momentary action that he’s experiencing. Needless to say, Andrew is quite a talent and should have the recognition that these pieces deserve.
I listen to the tracks that are on his website and for each track I can immediately connect that particular one to a scene in a movie. This type of talent is hard to come by. Somebody call Steven Spielberg!!
