Music

Andy loved music. Before online music streaming, and even before CDs, Andy would spend countless hours listening to, cataloguing, and meticulously curating and recording compilation mixed tapes that would become gifts for friends and the soundtracks of family road trips. His children all remember fondly (or not so fondly) being woken up on Sunday morning with from gospel music blaring from the living room turntable. From folk to rock, blues to jazz, gospel to ambient art-pop, Andy soaked in the beauty of artfully orchestrated sound and songwriting. Andy never easily expressed his emotions outwardly, but a close listen to the lyrics of some of his favourite tunes unveil his softer side. Here’s a playlist of some of his favourites as remembered by his children.
