Andrew Cashen

Songwriter and guitarist Andrew Cashen is one of Austin’s most prominent musicians. His reputation as a songwriter goes beyond his music and the multiple bands he plays with (A Giant Dog, Sweet Spirit, Tear Dungeon). Cashen’s dangerous but exciting acrobatics have built a reputation amongst the Austin Scene. There seem to be no limits to his ride-or-die musicianship.

He began writing and recording songs for a solo project as a vehicle for exploring music styles he wasn't playing in his various bands. Referencing music influences as diverse as 50s crooner pop and West African psych rock, Cashen has created a dense kaleidoscopic song cycle on his sophomore full-length The Cosmic Silence, which came out to much critical acclaim in 2022. Cashen is hard at work on the follow up with longtime engineer/producer Stuart Sikes.
