ANDREW RIPP - THE SIMPLE TOUR w/ JUDAH & THE LION
Andrew Ripp has continued to create music that pushes the boundaries of genre stereotypes, blending the energetic beats of pop music into a soul culture and adding the depth and groove of soul music into a pop culture. Since beginning his career in 2005, Ripp's songs and records have successfully impacted a diverse and growing audience including true music lovers: fans that appreciate the nuances of a well-crafted album, and easy listeners: fans who simply want to hear a catchy tune.
Having an awe-inspiring voice is one thing, but knowing how to use that voice to share lyrics and emotion in a way that moves those who hear the songs is quite another. Ripp has grown in this over the years as a respected songwriter with the voice of an artist. His latest album, Won't Let Go comes on the heels of Ripp celebrating a #1 album on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart in 2010 with She Remains The Same, which was the follow-up to his 2008 debut album Fifty Miles to Chicago. No stranger to the national music scene, Ripp began his career as a songwriter, co-writing half of Ryan Cabrera's 2005 album You Stand Watching, including "You Shine On," which landed on Billboard's Hot 100. He's additionally had a hand in writing songs that have been featured on American Idol, One Tree Hill, and Live To Dance.
With Won't Let Go, Ripp documents some of the hardest times in his personal and professional life, but through hardships come hope and love and no one captures those emotions better than he does on this album. Stand out tracks include the single, "Cool Ya (Nobody Loves You Like I Do)," the moving ballad "Just Enough," and the poignant "Rescue Me," which features GRAMMY Award winner Vince Gill.
A touring artist as well, Andrew's live performances continue to move the audience in just the right ways. He has opened for and toured the country with artists including Jon Foreman, needtobreathe, Will Hoge, Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers and Robert Randolph and the Family Band to name a few.
Special guests Judah & the Lion, an up-and-coming Nashville-based Americana/folk group, will open the show.
