Andrew Ripp is a singer-songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Raised outside of Chicago, Ripp creates music that pushes the boundaries of genre stereotypes, blending the energetic beats of pop music into a soul culture and adding the depth & groove of soul music into a pop culture - all underlined by his personal journey of faith.
As a touring artist, Ripp has opened for Sara Bareilles, Andy Grammer, Needtobreathe, Jon Foreman, and Plain White T’s. He has performed on high-profile TV shows including ABC’s <i>Bachelor in Paradise</i> and <i>Entertainment Tonight</i> and his songs have been featured on <i>American Idol,</i> <i>House of Lies</i>, <i>One Tree Hill</i>, and <i>Vampire Diaries</i>.
After the release of his Ed Cash produced self-titled album in 2015, Ripp, who celebrated his 10-year sober anniversary this past January, took a hiatus to recharge & find perspective. He returns to his fans with <b>The Heart</b>, the anticipated first half of the new album, <b>The Heart & The Soul</b>, available August 24th. The 6-song ep features Andrew’s powerful voice in its most honest setting yet.
“When you let everything go, you can start being real. I didn’t want to water down the songs to be more ‘commercial’. I aim to write the most honest music I can - and yes, some of them are more spiritual than others. It’s a part of my story I refuse to keep in the shadows just to make sure my music is more ‘accessible’. In today’s world, songs of love, overcoming adversity & redemption are songs that we all need to hear.”
