ANDREW CHASTAIN GREW UP IN THE MOUNTAINS OF MURPHY NC, WHERE HE BEGAN TO GROW A LOVE FOR MUSIC AT AN EARLY AGE. “I CAN REMEMBER GETTING GOOSE BUMPS WHEN I HEARD GARTH BROOKS’ “THUNDER ROLLS” BLASTING OUT OF MY BABY SITTER’S OLDER SON’S SPEAKERS ONE DAY, I WAS ABOUT 4 YEARS OLD THEN I GUESS.” ANDREW WAS SURROUNDED BY THE SOUNDS OF GOSPEL BLUEGASS, WHICH HIS GRANDPA AND UNCLE PLAYED AS WELL AS MOST OF HIS OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS. HE STARTED SINGING IN CHURCH AT ABOUT 9 YEARS OLD, AND SOON BECAME INVOLVED MORE INTO SPORTS AS HE ENTERED HIGHSCHOOL. FOR THE NEXT 4 YEARS, FOOTBALL WAS HIS MAIN FOCUS. WITH DREAMS OF PLAYING AT THE NEXT LEVEL, HIS PATH WAS ALTERED WHEN HE FRACTURED HIS BACK DURING A PRACTICE OF HIS SENIOR YEAR. HE BEGAN WRITING SONGS SHORTLY AFTER HIGHSCHOOL, AND STARTED PLAYING IN LOCAL BARS AT 23. “ME AND MY BUDDY ETHAN (LEAD GUITAR) WOULD GO AND PLAY COVER SONGS AND THE ORIGINALS THAT I HAD WRITTEN AT THE LOCAL BARS EVERY WEEKEND. I WORKED AT MY DAD’S AUTO PARTS STORE THROUGH THE WEEK AND PLAYED MUSIC ON THE WEEKENDS. THE LOVE FOR THE STAGE SOON BECAME MY MOTIVATION FOR BOOKING GIGS, NOT PAYING MY BILLS.” ANDREW WOULD GO ON TO RELEASE HIS FIRST ACOUSITC EP “CAROLINA HILLS” IN 2014. “I ACTUALLY RECORDED THAT EP IN MY BEDROOM (LAUGHS), WITH THE HELP OF A COUPLE OF GUYS I KNOW NAMED TIM ALLEN AND KAGNEY COLBERT. KAGNEY OFFERED TO MIX AND MASTER THE TRACKS WHILE TIM HELPED ME JUMPSTART THIS WEBSITE URL, THOSE GUYS WERE A LOT OF HELP WHEN NOBODY ELSE WAS OFFERING.”
