Andrew Vladeck

by Andrew Vladeck

When one thinks of indie folk music from New York City, a banjo usually doesn't come to mind ~ but Vladeck's version is playful and soulful and unlike anything you've heard.

Album Notes
This is a limited-edition, 8-panel digipack with art by Mac Primo, and photos/lyrics ~ it's a beauty.

This record received THREE Billboard Song Contest Awards.


Singer/Songwriter and native New Yorker Andrew Vladeck is a fixture on the New York music scene, recently winning First Place 2007 International Songwriting Competition and multiple Honors from the Billboard Song Contest. He was voted NYC Band of the Month by readers of The Deli Magazine earlier this year before disappearing into the studio to record a new album. Over the past year, Vladeck has toured from Boston to Chapel Hill and, on the local level, has started performing at the Bowery Ballroom, played the East River Bandshell (with David Johansen), as well as the Best of the Living Room and the Best of Arlene Grocery concerts.

A former NYC Urban Park Ranger, Vladeck started hot-wiring beat-up instruments because he loved their vibe but wanted more juice to play them at clubs. The result combines the modern with the historical, with his music lying somewhere between indie and folk. At times it’s as if The White Stripes, Jonathan Richman, and Beck fell into a blender and was spit out by Bob Dylan. Vladeck is especially regarded for his well-crafted songs and his unique rock banjo sound. Vladeck is also a member of The Honey Brothers.



to write a review


perfect for looking at frogs spawn to
This CD is an essential for any road trip or foot hike or general bum sitting. Everyone I lend this CD to fakes their own death to avoid giving it back. Even in the snap of a British winter Chinatown makes me feel like I need to languish on the banks of the River Mersey, and dip one toe in to keep cool. But when it comes to my favourite, you can't beat You Can't Kill time, for making you wish that you had an 8th of the fingersmith talent of the fine Mr A Vladeck.

Ranger Elisabeth

Love it, love him
I'm an old friend of Andrew's from the Urban Park Ranger days. My ranger hat now sits on the top of my dusty bookshelf, but my love for Andrew's music lives on.
I sure do miss those nights at CB's 313 Gallery, etc. I was so glad to find out he had a REAL LIVE DEBUT CD! Woo-hoo, baby!
Found myself wishing there was more of the hard-hitting, raw and emotional material from his earlier (self-made?) cd, especially with that backup singer chick, but that's ok. I love him and his music just the same. :::smooch:::

Marco Mahler

This is a really beautiful record! Every detail feels just right! Lots of love for music itself!


Spectacularly Spunky
So sublime and spectacularly spunky. What a sound! I am rather stingy and typically suffer from buyer's remorse with any purchase ... but not with this one. For more of this music, I would gladly part with more of my dollars. It was worth far more than my $12.97.

Mick Myers

Edgy, ironic and fun. Lovely vingettes about life and love.
Thanks to Jackie for turning me on to him.

Dave & Kathleen from Hoboken

Original, Creative, Fun!
This is Andrew Vladeck's best CD yet, with tightly produced versions of the great songs that appeared on his previous self-released demo, as well as some new tracks. Listen for Andrew's guitar, banjo (with slide!), harmonica and autoharp, not to mention his unique voice, creating wonderful textures that enhance his creative lyrics and body-movin' rhythms.

I think the reason this CD is so addictive is that each song has it's own story, personality and character. The musicians are excellent. Its sweet and upbeat. While Vladeck's voice is some decendent of Bob Dylan's, his musical style is not limited to that. Its a soundtrack for NYC life, for sure.

Kristin Boyd

The CD I've bought this year
I judge music the way anyway else who isn't a critic would. There are three elements that you need - lyrics, voice, and the instruments to back them up. Andrew Vladek's new CD ranks at the top in all three categories. Buy this CD today - it's well worth the $10.00 that CD Baby is so graciously offering it to you for.

Jessy Randall

This CD made me believe that the harmonica is the most emotionally expressive instrument EVER. My three-year-old son has been dancing to the songs on this CD for several days. I think I'm going to get him some harmonica, banjo, and ukelele lessons!

Alexander Williams

An excellent bit of work.
Andrew Vladeck was introduced to me via the auspices of Insomnia Radio Podcast, and I've been sure to send email to the host thanking him for the exposure. This album combines comfortable but not dulled beats with inspired vocals and interesting arrangements to achieve an imminently listenable potpourri of pleasure.
