Andrew Sisk writes songs. He uses songwriting whenever he can: to shake off the darkness of winter, or mend a broken heart, to capture a beautiful moment, or to teach children. Songs have always been his work. Through the act of creating music, Sisk has built a life filled with lovely talented friends and collaborators while making joyful memories of recording music.
Andrew Sisk emerged from the forests of New Brunswick into the Canadian music scene in the mid-2000s playing in bands like The Sleepless Nights, Share, Jenn Grant, and the Prospectors’ Union before moving to Montreal to begin his solo projects (Andrew Sisk, Coco et co.) Despite being an independent artist he has made 12 releases in his 15 year career, including the art project “The Passing of the Buffalo- by Buckskin” .
His surreptitious career has lead to his songs appearing in Radio, Television, and film, as well as, having songs covered by other artists like songstress Christina Martin with Blue Rodeo’s Greg Keelor. Perhaps most notably his songs were recorded with the release of a tribute album, “We Have the Same Lights Overhead“(2013), by the Acadian Embassy label which featured many of his celebrated peers recording versions of his songs.
Most recently, Sisk composed the film score for the NFB Documentary short “Paula“. He was commissioned to perform a musical tribute to Canadian Poet Alden Nowlan for the 2020 Shivering Songs Music Festival as a multidisciplinary performance piece.
Currently, the newest full length Andrew Sisk album, Mr. Miracle, is set to release on December 22, 2020.
