ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With the independent release of "Everything You Never Knew You Loved", Mo Andrews has taken another step along his musical journey.

"At 4 years old I was exposed to music through the cello," says Andrews. "That classical training really helped me understand how music is formed and the theory behind it. I think that I had to understand the reason why and how songs worked before I could start building them myself."

Andrews spent most of his childhood developing his music not only through the cello, but also on piano and bass. Upon enrolling at the Ohio State University in the fall of 1998, Andrews joined local rock band, Marblehead, as the bass player. "That was the first time I've ever played with musicians from a 'rock and roll' standpoint," explains Andrews. "Those guys exposed me to so many bands and other musicians that my scope of what music really is greatly expanded. It was then that I wanted to write music, but needed to find a way how."

With only a bass to write songs on, Andrews taught himself guitar so that he could get a better idea of what the songs would really sound like once completed. "It sounds cheesy, but like practically every other acoustic guitarist for the past 10 years, I learned guitar by learning Dave Matthews' songs," Andrews says. "The intricacy of his chord structures and rhythms forced me to get around the guitar quickly and I learned to incorporate some of his styles into my own songs." Andrews admits that he's no "Dave Matthews clone", but rather picks the best things he likes about Matthews', as well as other musicians styles, and keeps them for his own songs.

"The only problem with writing those songs was that they didn't fit the Marblehead idea," explains Andrews. "They were written in my bedroom for solo acoustic guitar and I didn't want to move away from their intention or feel by introducing them to a heavier rock band." So, Andrews decided to hit the open mic circuit and test out his new material. "I was nervous for about the first 2 songs that I ever sang in front of people, but once I started going, I knew there was no turning back on this."

Andrews left the band Marblehead and having worked his way around various Columbus open mic nights, started booking larger venues and headlining shows. The fan base began to grow as more and more people began bring friends out to the shows. "I knew that I was doing something right once people I didn't know started showing up," explains Andrews. "I was so used to just seeing my friends there that once I didn't recognize everybody, I had to take this thing one step farther."

In the winter of 2002, Andrews began recording his debut CD with Matt Morton from the Shantee. Recorded out of Morton's house in Gahanna, Ohio, Andrews felt that a simple acoustic album was the best way to record his first album. "John Mayer did a fantastic job of recording a solo acoustic album and I wanted to do something similar," says Andrews. "The songs were strong enough with just a guitar that I didn't need to get a full band on the record for them to still be effective." Writing on the ideas of love, hope and first chances, Andrews constructed an album that practically anybody can relate to. "Everybody has had somebody break his or her heart," he says. "I was just able to put that into a song and express all the things other people had also felt." While love may be a strong theme on "Everything You Never Knew You Loved", first chances also seem to be a prevalent theme. "There were a lot of times when I would just want to say 'give me a chance' to people. Some of these songs represent those feelings."

After releasing the CD in May of 2003, Andrews moved from Columbus to Cleveland. "I hated leaving Columbus because that's where this thing started and where I had started to really grow my fan base," Andrews explains. "But Cleveland has been great so far. This is really an amazing part of the country to be playing music." Still, Andrews hasn't forgotten about his Columbus following. He continues to play shows in Columbus while building a fan base in Cleveland.

Andrews also has introduced a loop pedal into his live show, which allows him to use live sampling in his shows. "It's one of those great pieces of equipment that when I use it, it turns peoples' heads. I can always tell who the first-timers are in the audience because I can hear the room get a little quieter and feel more eyes on me."

With an ambitious debut CD and a steady following of fans throughout Cleveland and Columbus, Mo Andrews is ready to take the next step. "I'd really like to start getting into more markets, preferable college towns," he explains. "That's where my target market is and that's where I need to go." He anticipates expanding his fan base through some regional touring once the time is right. "I still have this thing called a 'real job' that I'm dealing with. But I'm a firm believer that what I'm doing at night up on that stage is my true 'real job'. One that I can hopefully do well and for a long, long time."

all the sweetness
This is one of those CDs that you pop in your cd player, and sit back and wait for the goosebumps to form. It's one of those albums that really speaks to the soul. Mo seems to read emotions like a book... and then he superbly manages to add melodies and harmonies like no one. His picking is clean and articulate as well as his lyrics. Anyone who has experienced lust, love, and heartbreak will absolutely enjoy this album. Mo can only get better from here, and i'm personally awaiting his second release on needles and pins. BUY THIS CD!

A must listen for every fan of great music.
Upon first listen of Mo Andrews' debut release, "Everything You Never Knew You Loved", one is taken back to the times of early Dave Matthews or John Mayer. Playing on his influences, Mo Andrews crafts a wonderful CD full of catchy melodies and inspired lyrics.

The album starts off in full force with the song "Falling Down on Me" and quickly moves to "Change Your Mind", a piece about second chances. Varying between his normal singing voice and a strong falsetto, Mo engages the listener and truly makes him or her believe the words he sings. The album slows down with the wonderfully crafted "In Silence", thick with guitars and percussion. It is this slower style where Mo truly finds his voice. The album progresses naturally with each song telling the story of lost love or some of the other oddities of life. The album closes with "Everytime", a finger-picked ballad about the dedication of one to another. A fitting end to an overall great album.

This is truly one of the great albums to come out from the singer/songwriter genre in the past few years. The melodies will stick in your head while the lyrics will resonate from your own personal experiences. If you're looking for the next big thing, I think I've found it.

Mo's cd is better than cake frosting (the good kind)
Having been a huge Mo fan for about 5 years now, I have long awaited this debut CD. I was worried that the uncontainable intensity that Mo plays with live couldn't be captured in the studio, but I couldn't have been more wrong. Listening to this record makes me feel like an ape in a big bowl of jelly (that means good). Get this CD!!

AMAZING
Listening to Mo's songs on the computer does not do justice for his music. It is evident that his mix of guitar rythyms and vocals fit perfectly, creating a fantastic musical work in CD form!!
