Album Notes
Chuck Andrews –Guitar/Vocals
Chris Cartrett – Bass/Backup Vocals
Jason Hermes –Drums/Backup Vocals

“Hey guys, I really love these songs! keep up the good work/play! Chuck, your voice sounds great, like there's real strawberries in there!” -Kevin Barnes, of Montreal

60's mod harmonies, built in the basement of CBGB's, as the heartfelt wrench of an afternoon sunset listens to a Syd Barrett sonnet.

“Fire Zuave aim at creating a mashup of their own ‘if the Beatles were born in Nashville’ ”–Marya Summers, New Times 12/6/07

Counting all members, a total of 4 independent CD were released. Work with 2 producers should be noted. Wally Bryson (The Raspberries, www.thebrysongroup.com) worked with Chuck Andrews’s band Qwasi Qwa on the album ‘Shaking Hands With the Governor-1999’. The Cleveland Freetimes gave rave reviews in 2000 to Chuck Andrews band Qwasi Qwa and also won best Americana band. Qwasi Qwa was nominated in 2001 and 2002 under various alt country Americana categories.
Phil McArthur (Nestor Torres, Ricky Martin, KC and The Sunshine Band) worked with Chris Cartrett’s band Doorway27 on the album ‘The Rescue Effect-2006’.

“The West Palm Beach band's MySpace Music page describes them as "indie/country/alternative." So what does that sound like? Sometimes it's an upbeat, steady twang, and sometimes it's an easy acoustic strum over thoughtful lyrics. Whatever it is, it's good.” -Leslie Gray Streeter, The Palm Beach Post

Other notes:
Chuck works closely with his cousin Kevin Barnes (of Montreal) on band, recording and stage performance ideas to refine a unique appeal. David Barnes (of Montreal art work design) works closely with the band and is credited with most the art work on fire Zuave’s debut album “Sand Fastened” and choreography.

“an eclectic mix of Americana, indie, alt-country and acoustic rock…n'”
-John Lin, New Times Broward/Palm Beach
