Andrew Ripp is a singer-songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Raised outside of Chicago, Ripp creates music that pushes the boundaries of genre stereotypes, blending the energetic beats of pop music into a soul culture and adding the depth & groove of soul music into a pop culture - all underlined by his personal journey of faith.
As a touring artist, Ripp has opened for Sara Bareilles, Andy Grammer, Needtobreathe, Jon Foreman, and the Plain White T’s. He has performed on high-profile TV shows including ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise and Entertainment Tonight and his songs have been featured on American Idol, House of Lies, One Tree Hill, and Vampire Diaries.
After the release of his Ed Cash produced self-titled album in 2015, Ripp, who celebrated his 10-year sober anniversary this past January, took a hiatus to recharge & find perspective. He returns to his fans with The Heart & The Soul, the anticipated new album releasing in two halves. The first half, The Heart, is available August 24th. The 6-song ep features Andrew’s powerful voice in its most honest setting yet.
“When you let everything go, you can start being real. I didn’t want to water down the songs to be more ‘commercial’. I aim to write the most honest music I can - and yes, some of them are more spiritual than others. It’s a part of my story I refuse to keep in the shadows just to make sure my music is more ‘accessible’. In today’s world, songs of love, overcoming adversity & redemption are songs that we all need to hear.”
