Andrew Karnavas has been creating and performing music since 2009, and currently manages three original music projects through his independent record label, YAWP Records. He has toured nationwide with all three projects, playing at esteemed venues including the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., PBS Kids House at SXSW, the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Disney Stage, and the House of Blues. Andrew has released six albums: two “AndyRoo and the AndyRooniverse” family music albums; three “Runaway Sun” Delta rock albums; and his solo LP, Film Noir, a work of introspective bluesy acoustic music with image-driven storytelling inspired by his childhood trips to the movies with his Dad. Andrew calls this Film Noir collaboration with FrenetiCore Dance “a lifelong dream come true.” In addition to composing new music and singing live for the performance, Andrew edited the video footage shot by seasoned DP Raul Casares for the stage show. Whether live or recorded, Andrew entertains audiences of all ages.
“Andrew Karnavas’ music is full of mystery and mood, so Film Noir seems a fitting title for his new collection of originals. The songs are alternately smoky and smooth, countryish and classical, hushed and heartfelt.” – Joey Guerra, Houston Chronicle
“When Karnavas is playing alone on the stage, just him and his guitar, he sounds like what a big empty field looks like before it rains. Film Noir develops theatrically, playing like a movie soundtrack, hinting at love lost and regret in a desolate-tinged Americana style – think Wilco but more sincere.” – Shea Serrano, Houston Modern Luxury Magazine
