Andy Shauf is a name you might not be familiar with, but we urge you to discover. Andy is a storyteller, a singer of heartbreak and regrets, isolation and loneliness, reflecting his prairie surroundings in Canada.

Shauf is a singer-songwriter from Regina, Canada, who released his second album, The Bearer of Bad News, at the start of this year. His performance at Harpa, Icelandic Airwaves one of my favourite shows of the weekend – his voice carries shades of Elliott Smith, without ever drifting into pastiche, and his songs run like short stories – colourful, precisely-told and compelling.

Meticulously written, his beautiful debut album ‘The Bearer of Bad News’ is warm and welcoming, bathed in weathered piano, dampened drums, softly-strummed guitars and clarinet, which lends its unique timbre to brighten – or hauntingly underscore – the songs’ darker undercurrents.
