Andrew Bloom

Musician/Singer/Songwriter
Los Angeles, CA

Ask 18 year old musician/singer/songwriter Andrew Bloom what THE most important motivating factor is in his life and he'll look you straight in the eye with a great set of baby blues and say, “Well, it's to play, it's just. . .to play.” Don't be confused though. He does agree that the ultimate goal of the game is to become a star by topping the charts with a hit song, but until that happens, all he wants to do is play music! Oh--and not just in his living room for friends and family. Not even just for a panel of judges on a Reality T.V. competition American Idol. No, what Andrew means when he says "to play” is--to produce music for an audience of people in a concert hall or pub, to entertain, and to get paid for his efforts while doing it. For the record, that's what he means! Interestingly, he is able to accomplish “just playing” on a regular basis, and perhaps it's due to Bloom's style and genre which set him apart from other kids his age who are making an attempt to break into the biz. Yes, he is a Pop Music kid, but he infuses it with old-school elements from some more traditional genres like Classic Rock, Funk, R&B and Soul. Now we're talkin' appeal for more than one generation.
