Andrew Delaney, of Ft. Worth, TX, has been an unorthodox voice in the songwriter scene for a decade now. In that time he has self-released eight full-length albums, won numerous accolades for his writing, and had his songs recorded and performed by artists all over the country.
He is a consummate storyteller, often hilarious and heavy in the same breath. Delaney’s ability to entertain even while speaking on the darkest of subjects led Rich Warren of WFMT Radio, Chicago to dub him “The Alfred Hitchock of singer/songwriters.”
2017 was Andrew’s most distinguished year to date. He was the winner of the top honors at The Songwriter Serenade, a nationwide competition for performing songwriters held near La Grange, TX. He was also a finalist in the Rocky Mountain Song Contest at The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, CO. His self-directed music video for the song “Howard” took him to Portland, OR for the annual H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival as an official selection. Shortly afterwards, he was named Best Songwriter at the Dallas / Ft. Worth “Ghosty” Awards, put on by the local Ghost of Blind Lemon music blog.
Past years have seen Delaney on national tours and sharing stages with the likes of Hayes Carll, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Bob Schneider, Corb Lund, and Junior Brown. In 2016 he co-headlined a night on the famed Kerrville Folk Festival’s Main Stage.
