#4: Andrew Tuttle
Andrew Tuttle is a musician from Brisbane who works primarily with acoustic guitar and banjo and electronics. I've seen Andrew play a few times and my band Leavings actually played a show with him a couple of years ago, but we hadn't actually really met until we did this interview. I really love Andrew's music, particularly his newest self-titled album, which came out in 2018 on room40. It's a wonderfully balanced combination of acoustic instruments and synthetic sounds and all of the pieces on it have a very strong sense of melody and movement.
This interview was recorded in September in Andrew's office APRA in Fortitude Valley, and I was very happy to have the chance to talk to him. This one was a little painful for me to edit. I was a little wired from driving around all day running errands and just having had a cup of coffee, so you'll hear me say the word 'yeah' a lot.
If you happen to be in Sydney, you can see Andrew play tomorrow night (December 20) with Ryley Walker at the Petersham Bowls Club. Since we recorded this interview, Andrew also released a new track called "AEDT", which you can find on his bandcamp page (link below).
This episode of the podcast is going to be the last one for 2019 as I'll be taking the Christmas and New Year weeks off in order to focus a bit more on a couple of other projects, which I should be able to tell you a bit more about in the new year. I'll be back on the 2nd of January with an interview with Will Guthrie, and after that I'll be switching the schedule so that the podcast comes out on Tuesdays rather than Thursdays, so you can expect the following episode on the 7th of January.
Tracks played: "Boarding Zone" and "The Coldest Night"
