Who is Andy Eppler? - Songwriter, Poet, Producer, Author, Painter, Comedian, Owner of Andy Eppler Productions and Velvet Syntax Publishing

Andy Eppler:
Born in Lubbock, Texas in 1985 Andy Eppler was raised by scholars in churches. He began writing songs and performing them for the public when he was 15. Over the years he has become known for addressing high-minded topics such as humanity’s place in the universe, as well as the concepts of authority, atheism, and community in his various art projects. Deemed “the future of Lubbock, Texas Music” at the Lubbock Centennial Celebration Opening Ceremony in 2008, Mr. Eppler is best known as a songwriter. He has written, recorded, and produced four solo albums of his original music, eight original albums with the band “The Prairie Scholars”, and one audio collection of his poems and short stories. His work was featured and compared to that of Mac Davis, Terry Allen, and Butch Hancock in volume eight of Journal of the Society for American Music published by Cambridge University Press in 2014.
Though Mr. Eppler spends a lot of energy and time on recording albums and playing live shows, he also voraciously explores other art mediums. In 2014 he released a book titled “New Reason New Way: how my skepticism changed my art” which was about his life, art philosophy, and the functionality of creativity in the brain. In his new home of Boulder County Colorado, he has made time to create and sell dozens of psychedelically themed paintings in a large connected series called the “Yes Voice”. He is also the host of one of Boulder County’s most popular podcasts “Ando's Thinky Time Podcast” which showcases interviews with local artists and community leaders. Mr. Eppler also  produces Longmont, Colorado's only Songwriter Music Festival with 300 Suns Brewing every summer. Today, he continues to push the boundaries of what an artist can be in the modern context by spending his extra time working locally in his community.
