Andrew Rodriguez is a Canadian singer-songwriter, born in Sweden, raised in Montreal and now based in Toronto. From his days in teen garage sensations The Sherlocks to his Juno nominated band Bodega, Andrew Rodriguez has covered a lot of musical territory. Now, Andrew Rodriguez has completed Here Comes The Light his debut solo album out on the Canadian Independent record label The Baudelaire Label.
After recording the Bodega album Without A Plan in upstate New York with renowned producer Dave Fridmann, Andrew toured under the Bodega moniker, but he also started doing some solo outings under his given name, opening for Rufus Wainwright, Neil Halstead, Sarah Harmer, Sarah Slean and Hayden. While recording his solo album, Andrew took time out to help out on various recordings, most notably contributing guitar, keyboard and backing vocals to fellow Montrealer Sam Roberts song Brother Down. Also during this time, Andrew took to the road and toured extensively as guitarist/keyboardist with ex-Hole and Smashing Pumpkins member Melissa Auf Der Maur.
Andrew recorded Here Comes The Light himself, mainly at home. It features members of Stars, Jason Kent, Angela Desveaux and others. Although one can hear echoes of John Lennon, Neil Young and The Band, and also a connection with contemporary artists such as Wilco, Grandaddy and The Raconteurs, Andrew has developed a style and sound entirely his own.
