Gig Information

Drunken Piano is excited to announce Toronto songwriter Andy Shauf for his debut one off New Zealand show at the Tuning Fork in July. This comes off the back of his Wilds Australian Tour, with headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide this June.

Few artists are storytellers as deft and disarmingly observational as Andy Shauf. The Toronto-based, Saskatchewan-raised musician's songs unfold like short fiction: they're densely layered with colourful characters and a rich emotional depth. He pens songs that explore universal truths through picaresque vignettes, from the colourful people-watching observations of 2016’s The Party to the tale of a failed relationship explained over one night at a local watering hole on 2020’s The Neon Skyline. But Shauf has never exactly been held up as a confessional sort of songwriter, even though underneath the carefully plotted narratives and conceptual storylines, he’s always been writing about himself.

Wilds might change that. A collection of nine songs culled from around fifty tracks recorded by the prolific Shauf during the writing of The Neon Skyline and presented in a near-unfiltered form, the unstudied rawness of the songs on Wilds is a revealing look at Shauf’s mindset during the time he was writing Skyline—what he calls “a glimpse into the window of how chaotic things were”—as well as a peek into the creative process behind a proper Andy Shauf studio album, a snapshot of how the multi-instrumentalist first begins building his songs into more ornately arranged final products.

Don’t miss the gifted storyteller will performing at the Tuning Fork on Friday June 17th.
