ANDREW WATT dances with ghosts on debut EP Monday, 30 November 2015 21:09 by madseason
Andrew Watt - Ghost In My Head

You may remember New York-born, Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Watt as guitar player for the short-lived rock band California Breed (that featured the mighty Glenn Hughes and Jason Bonham).

The 24 years old rocker was signed as solo artist to Republic Records, thanks to Jason and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and released his 4-track debut EP Ghost In My Head last October 9.
The EP was produced by Alain Johannes (Queens Of The Stone Age, Eleven, Jimmy Eat World) and, in Andrew's words, "it is a culmination of the last 5 years of touring and contains everything i have in me... blood sweat and tears in its purest form..."

The first single off the mini-album is the title-track: "this was the first song I wrote for this record and i love that it wound up being the first single" says Andrew, adding "lyrically it delves into the all encompassing trip of a life on the road and the struggles that it brings when readjusting to any kind of a normal life. It only felt right that this would be a predominately performance based video. I had a blast shooting it and I hope you dig."
