“With the help of his brass resophonic guitar - a nickel-plated beast that can rock the walls of any room - he takes fans on a hauntingly-good ride like no other modern-day, slide guitarist ever could.”
— Andrea Brill, Relish Winston-Salem Journal
Andy Squint is a singer/songwriter peppered with Louisiana spice. He features both bottleneck slide and fingerstyle guitar in his shows. Performing as a solo or, with his band the Zydeco Rouxsters, he's cookin' up a thick rich gumbo of Blues, Funk, and Zydeco music.
Andy cut his teeth as a member of the Swamp Cats in Baton Rouge, LA. As the house guitarist at Tabby's Blues Box in Baton Rouge Andy opened each show by singing a few songs then continued on to play in the backing band for many top Louisiana Blues & Zydeco guest artists. After "The Box" closed, Andy worked with such Louisiana Blues Hall of Fame members as Oscar Davis and Slim Harpo's guitarist, James Johnson.
Andy struck out on his own in 2006 with a CD of original blues songs, Goin' to the Racetrack, which still receives international radio airplay. In 2008, Andy was a guest artist on Larry Garner's Dixie Frog Records release, Here Today, Gone Tomorrow.
After relocating to High Point, NC, in 2010, Andy has performed at many Piedmont area festivals including Greensboro's 25th Anniversary Carolina Blues Festival. His second CD, Down by the River, released in 2011 features Andy alone and acoustic.
