Andrew Lipke is a highly active artist, producer, songwriter, entertainer, and over-all member of the Philadelphia music scene.
Born in South Africa, Andrew showed his musical prowess at an early age, starting piano lessons at 5 and later teaching himself the guitar. Immigrating to America in 1987, Lipke later moved to Philadelphia to earn a degree in Music Composition from the University of the Arts. He has released three acclaimed solo records, two under Drexel Universities' Mad Dragon Records.
In addition to his own music, Lipke is receiving praise in his expanding role as a record producer in his studio, The Record Lounge. Lipke also plays across the country in the renowned Led Zeppelin tribute band Get the Led Out and spends the rest of his time contributing to many diverse musical groups and projects in the Philadelphia area including sound design and original music for regional theater productions. His work has garnered him much critical acclaim and in 2007 he won the prestigious Barrymore Award for excellence in theatre.
He's due to release his fourth album "The Plague" this year and it's his most ambitious project yet. A song cycle of apocalyptic vignettes tied together by meticulously arranged string quartet material and lyrical themes steeped in the reanalysis of religious suppositions and the dissection of destructive dogma, The Plague somehow still manages to remain accessible and convey Lipke's unabashed love for pop music.
Andrew performs his music throughout the Philadelphia region with his band The Prospects and also with The Azrael String Quartet.
