Whoohooo! Almost a year later, the album Wild Drop is finished. I'm really proud of this one. Lots of work, time, energy, collaboration and magic went into this album. Cello playing by Orien McDonald, harmony vocal by my sister Maria Casler, tons of instruments, and an amazing job done by sound engineer Joe Victor. Here's a couple pictures he took in the studio. Buy the album! Check out a concert when I'm in your town. Love!

Andrew Dahl-Bredine is a singer-songwriter and musician from Silver City, New Mexico. He makes his living performing, teaching, writing songs, working with kids through music and nature, and living and rediscovering a life closely intertwined with the wild natural world. Check out the music!
“An Evening with Andrew is one of the most enjoyable concerts we have presented since our Center’s opening. The concert was like a breath of fresh air or a cool drink of spring water, it transported us so delighfully from our everyday lives. Our audience was drawn in not only by Andrew’s uncanny and wide variety of musical abilities, his original and superior songwriting, his fluidity in several languages , but mainly his honest connection and rapport with everyone in the room. Everyone -young and old -hung on his every breath the length of the 2 hour performance. We are certain to invite Andrew Dahl-Bredine back every season to the Center for the Arts.” - Laura Moore, Executive Director, Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts
Through his recordings and performances, and his everyday work with kids, music, and the natural world, Andrew seeks to uncover and express what it is to be a human being; to heal, to communicate truthfully, to feel joy and sadness, to be together and alone, and to explore what it might mean to live in balance.
"You can't believe the journeys he takes you on: deep into your memory, deep into your joy; deep into the spirit, the madness, and the heart of the human experience." - James Medfield, High Desert Beat
"There's something so foreign, so exotic and unusual in his sound, and in his lyrics; yet somehow he leaves the audience feeling so at home, so comfortable, so close..." - Nena Garcia, Acoustic Review
