Wooden Birds
Andrew Kenny is a native Texan who after nearly six years in Brooklyn, NY has returned to beautiful Austin, TX. He's best known as the singer/songwriter behind mellow indie favorites the American Analog Set. However, he's also performed as a guest artist with the Album Leaf, Her Space Holiday, Styrofoam, Ola Podrida, Arthur & Yu, and most recently the Broken Social Scene.

His latest project is called the Wooden Birds and is his best effort to date. Fans will recognize his voice and song writing immediately, but the arrangements on Magnolia are more vocal and percussion heavy than anything he's done before.

Roommate began in NYC in 2000 as a solo project of video artist Kent Lambert, and it's been an ever-mutating Chicago band since 2004. Roommate's 2011 album GUILTY RAINBOW was praised by Tiny Mixtapes as "one of those rare albums that starts out great and gets better over its 45-minute length." The band's fourth album MAKE LIKE was released in 2015 and described by the Chicago Reader's Philip Montoro as "brainy, nuanced pop." Roommate shares a drummer (Seth Vanek) with Health & Beauty, and are big fans of Health & Beauty, who do not have a bio.
