He is equal parts rock n’ roller and crooner, without losing that singer/songwriter charm. He is now working on his fourth studio album, the follow-up to 2013’s “Victory March” (PerfectDuluthDay’s Album of the Year). More at ryanvanslooten.com.

Andrew Spreck | Sat, April 15, 9:00pm – 11:30pm | The Contented Cow
er Andrew Spreck digs deep into classic rock, folk rock, classic country…anythin g with soul and passion to deliver an inspiring blend of cover songs and original material. Early in Andrew’s solo acoustic journey, he started using the phrase “keep music live” and he does just that, averaging 50 shows a year with 25 original songs and more songs than he can play in one sitting, Andrew’s set list changes with every show. Spreck has been performing music for over two decades. In 2011 he transitioned from lead guitarist/lead vocalist playing in rock and blues cover bands to blossom into an outstanding solo acoustic artist. While his first solo CD of original music, “In the distance,” is reminiscent of his electrified rock background, it also foreshadows the future with a handful of acoustic-driven songs. The follow-up “Devotion,” released 2014, is a true snapshot of the life he’s been living. Roughly half of the songs on Devotion were born directly from the solo acoustic experience. In the electronic age of limitless personal jukeboxes, Andrew’s music celebrates a simpler time when music was honest, earthy and heart-felt.
