Andrew Thoreen

Andrew Thoreen is a singer-songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist based in Saint Paul Minnesota. An avant-garde pop traditionalist with outsider art sensibilities, Andrew is a producer, arranger, session musician, and sideman.
Thoreen is inspired and informed by the forward thinking musicians like David Byrne, Dirty Projectors, Arthur Russell, The Shaggs, Grizzly Bear, Andy Shauf, and Andrew Bird who have paved the way for songwriters like him to take risks with pop music.
