Here at Square Roots towers we’re extremely excited to announce that the astoundingly talented singer / songwriter Andrew Duhon, all the way from his native New Orleans USA, will be returning to play for us all again in the historic surrounds of The Square Tower in the Summer due to public demand, following his sensational appearance at the same venue last July.

And what's more, he'll be celebrating the fact that his latest album "The Moorings" has been "GRAMMY" nominated!! How awesome is that?!!

Andrew Duhon is a New Orleans native, raised in the country’s most unique and mysterious city. A city that accepts all walks of life with a curiosity and forgiveness that
has found its way into his wholly American songwriting. A Folk and Blues influenced singer/songwriter, Duhon shares his love of American History, it’s struggles, triumphs,
and impulses through his music. Whether its love that crosses color lines, a family challenged by life’s unexpected turns or the woeful tale of a city left to drown, Duhon
brings his audience into the most intimate of spaces through his storytelling.

Andrew began writing in high school spurred on by a fascination with the literary works of Emerson and Thoreau as well as poets Walt Whitman and Robert Frost. During the summer of '04 Andrew worked and lived at an old retreat house on the outskirts of the French Quarter. It was then that he fell in love with the character of New Orleans. A year later hurricane Katrina left the city and his former French Quarter home crippled. The blues that he had found in the French Quarter rang true as he continued to write. The honesty in Andrew Duhon's songwriting is a result of the self-realization that he has found through his writing. His music and performances reflect his personal perspective in a very real way, and his voice leaves no gaps in the experience as he sings with a conviction all too befitting of his raw, personal writings.

Andrew's writing is as honest and gritty as his voice, and leaves no part of his imagination to the imagination. His stories are told in smooth New Orleans folk blues style. Winner of 2012 "Best Singer/Songwriter" Award by Nola's premiere music publication, Offbeat Magazine


He has released three albums to date including EP, "Dreaming When You Leave", and debut album, "Songs I Wrote Before I Knew You". "Songs" was produced by Grammy award winning producer/engineer, Trina Shoemaker (Sheryl Crow, Emmylou Harris, Queens of the Stone Age, Whiskeytown) and "Dreaming" by Grammy winning producer, John Snyder (Dave Brubeck, Etta James, Junior Wells, Ornette Coleman, Dizzy Gillespie, Clarence Gatemouth Brown). Andrew has toured throughout the United States and UK, and continues to tour, write, and record.

Notable Acclaim:

"This record is genius. Not kidding. It is unbelievably great. This young man has it. The singing, the playing, the production...it's all there. Strikingly good. The world needs to hear this record."
-George Howard, former president of Rykodisc

"Another world-class voice is heard from Louisiana, another
soulful, mesmerizing singer who writes emotional songs with
impact and heart. Andrew Duhon is a troubadour for the next
generation, a story-teller for his generation. Measured in
the blues with the gift of narrative, Andrew¹s songs will
not only make you think, they will make you sing along, days
later. This a young artist to watch, and to hear, as soon
as you can find a way. "
- John Snyder, ArtistHouseMusic.com

"Andrew gets it. He understands not only how to craft an appealing song, but how to sell it on stage well beyond his years. He brings to mind a young Dylan with both his melancholy and sincerity."
-Eric Orlando, owner of Carrollton Station

" with his cards to his chest and his heart on his sleeve, Andrew brings us his stories, in a voice as full as any I've heard, breathing life and truth into his songs"
-Trina Shoemaker, Grammy Award Winning producer and engineer
