So, let's see what happens when Andie Mechanic visits Section 36 Music!
I really enjoyed your recent single, “Call it Even”. What can you tell me about it?
“Call it Even" is, to me, a really earnest and humbling song. It was written (with fellow Berklee student Henry Patterson) about wishing I could reach out to someone I had broken up with, in the hopes that they might still want to know me. I was listening to a lot of indie-folk music at the time and really wanted to capture that intimate, soft-pop sound that can be so emotional and so cathartic.
I’m excited for your upcoming release, “Clinton”. What should I know about it?
This spring, you will graduate from Berklee College of Music. What’s the biggest thing you can see Berklee doing for your career?
Berklee has already given me so much as a songwriter. It’s connected me with the people I’m lucky enough to call friends and collaborators. These are the same people I’m starting to build my career alongside and with. We’re all so genuinely supportive of each other and really push each other to keep going. To me, that’s priceless.
Who or what would you consider your biggest musical influences?
What would you say is your biggest career challenge?
I would say finding my audience has been the biggest struggle so far. I’m a new artist, with only 3 songs out. I’m basically throwing my music into the abyss and screaming, “pay attention to me!” in the hopes that the people who are going to love my music find it. You just keep doing that until eventually, hopefully, they do.
What are your immediate career goals?
Let's get some people listening to her music!
As always, I want to thank Andie for visiting with us, and for sending along the pictures to accompany the interview.
Thanks again Andie, and good luck reaching your goals!
