After spending a cozy afternoon with Andrew Belle earlier this week
we decided to take the 29 year old, Chicago/Nashville bred songwriter up on an offer to come out and see a more full-bodied set at The Highline Ballroom. playing before a fantastically polite and attentive crowd Andrew and his band pulled out an assortment of tricks not available to him in his session with us earlier in the day. Where we heard renditions of "Pieces", "Black Bear", and "Sister" that were warm and delicate, floating about in the haze of Josh Pantana's ambient guitar, Andrew and his band mates brought out the electronic nuances of his newest album Black Bear at The Highline. Live, these were songs that took immediate flight aboard inventive drum rhythms, driving bass, and the band's scattered, electronic flourishes. Have a look at some photos below and be on the lookout for our session in the next few weeks.
