Andy Powder Bio
by Ryan Molnar
Guitarist, singer, songwriter, noisemaker extraordinaire; Andy Powder has led a number of bands that couldn’t keep up with the sensational artistry he provides. One band quit immediately following a recording session with the infamous Steve Albini. Another was cursed from the beginning, and opted out of playing even after their Grimtale Records album sold out in one day. And yet another band, Powder Hounds, was ripped at the seams after their musical madness and creativity left one member hospitalized from a mental breakdown. But through it all Becca has stood strong for Powder, riding out the highs and lows of his career and adapting to his manic nature. The two have now begun playing as together. . . .
Becca enables Powder to express himself in his true form, a musical deviant prepared to make your ears bleed with feedback and in your face guitar solos. She handles percussion while Powder writes the music, and layers guitar chaos and noise in such a beautiful array you too may find yourself questioning your sanity. Powder is a sensation when it comes to stage presence, even cutting his own ear in half during a set with a former band. As he rolls around on stage his guitar becomes an extension of his own being, each layer of sound greater than the next. With every droning drum beat the duo reels you in, they put on a show you won’t soon forget. If you find yourself in the area of an Andy Powder show you would be a fool not to check them out. You won’t leave in the same state of mind you came in, and if you’re lucky; you won’t leave with the same pants you came in either.
