"Andrew Phelan has a sleeper of a voice-the kind that can lull one moment, and knock you back with its power the next" - Sarah Fawcet, Red On Black Music.
Australian born, Vancouver based singer Andrew Phelan writes close to the chest, and this heartfelt approach to songwriting quickly let him cut a path in the Canadian music scene as the charming front man of Vancouver Folk band The River and The Road. Since 2012, Andrew has toured Canada multiple times, playing high-profile festivals (Squamish Valley Music Festival, Toronto Urban Roots Festival, SKOOKUM) and opened for acts such as Shakey Graves and Sam Roberts Band.
The River and The Road were then nominated for 2015 best breakthrough album of the year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards for their sophomore release Headlights.
Since then, Andrew has continued performing solo and with a trio in Australia and Canada, with recent performances including supporting Deep Dark Woods, John Paul White (ex Civil Wars), and a sold out cross Canada tour with Vancouver's' Peach Pit.
