About the event

     Andrew Rodriguez’s (b. 1989) interest in music began with stints as the guitarist for various metal/hardcore bands as a teenager. This path culminated with three full-length albums as one of the main songwriters for the hardcore/punk band Close Your Eyes on Chicago-based label, Victory Records. Rodriguez’s history as a performer sculpts the core of his musical identity. Having spent over three years touring the country, Andrew’s passion for the DIY scene continues to guide his creativity.

     Andrew also regularly works collaboratively on projects as a music producer. Having been familiar with the techniques and processes of a studio production during his time in Close Your Eyes, he began offering collaborative guidance to other artists as they prepared to record their own studio projects. As a producer, Andrew’s primary goal is to help the artist achieve their ideal vision for their project. Andrew’s inspirations vary widely, ranging from jazz, hip hop, and rock to contemporary and traditional classical genres. This wide spectrum of influences pushes him to explore truly unique and engaging approaches to songwriting and production.
