Since the release of his acclaimed album The Party, Shauf, has been accumulating a substantial buzz with a mix of sumptuous pop melodies and literary gifts.
NPR wrote that singer-songwriter Andy Shauf “recalls classic pop songwriters in the vein of Harry Nilsson or Randy Newman, coupled with the plainspoken timbre of a Paul Simon”
Shauf was also recently nominated for three Juno Awards in the categories of Breakthrough Artist, Adult Alternative Album of The Year, and Recording Engineer of the Year, for his acclaimed album The Party.
Critical Acclaim for Andy Shauf
"A graduate of the school of Burt Bacharach, solo Lennon, Macca and Wings, The Carpenters, Harry Nilsson and Elliott Smith, Shauf can locate the game changing chord that great songs pivot on, for which lesser talents fumble in vain. The Party conceals killer lyrics in music of extraordinary beauty and lushness.” - Sunday Times UK
The Party is definitely worth celebrating.” - Uncut
" it’s a baroque-pop exercise with echoes of Seventies smarties like Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman and Steely Dan, though rather more empathetic than them.” - The Independent
★★★★ - The Canadian songwriter's hazy harmonies and easy keys belie the intricate concept of his fourth full album. Using sharp snapshots and strange characters, Shauf paints an endearing sketch of his house's many moods." - MOJO
"...a lovely, luxuriant thing you should hear..." – Stereogum
"Fans of artists like Elliott Smith and Grizzly Bear will likely enjoy Shauf’s music, but overall Shauf really comes into his own on The Party." - Paste
