Cool New Things

Hey everybody,

I'd like to take a moment to express my thanks for all of the support I've received toward my musical ventures. Making music is a dream of mine and the fact that people enjoy my works is an awesome bonus.

My Bill Murray EP is finally available for purchase, both digitally and physically.
If you would like a physical copy of the album for $5 (US), feel free to shoot an email to CDs@andymarin.com. My methods of delivery are a bit limited at the moment, but it's nothing I can't work around, especially for those of you in the Dallas or Austin areas.

Digital copies of my EP can be found in several locations across the web, including the following locations:
It's also available for streaming on Spotify.

In case you didn't notice, one of the links was my brand new personal website powered by Bandcamp! All of the tracks are available for free download on my website and SoundCloud, but feel free to use the name your price option on my website. Musicians need to eat too.

Look forward to more news soon...

Bill Murray is Alive!

Finally. My solo songwriting project is a tangible reality (almost!)

Thanks to some eager friends and supporters as well as a well-timed tax return, I have amassed the funds and materials necessary to distribute the music into which I channelled so much of my energy, time, and emotion. I am proud of my work, despite any flaws in quality or performance, because each of these tracks is special to me. I hope that others will find similar merits in my work.

The album, titled Bill Murray EP, consists of the following tracks:
  1. Hey Mary  1:37
  2. Stutter Sickly   3:35
  3. Box Springs and Quiet Dreams  4:02
  4. I'm Afraid to Love You   2:32
I know it's short, but I do feel that each of these songs is worth your time.

The mp3s are available for purchase here. 
They will also be on iTunes and available for streaming on Spotify shortly.

For those of you interested in hard copies (CDs) more info will be available in my next post. I'd like to hear your feedback and don't be afraid to contact me with your questions. 

Also, here's an old cover I did of "Tonight You Belong to Me." It's a tad quiet though and didn't quite make the cut for the EP.

Thanks for your support,
Andy Marin

Good Morning

So it has almost been a year since my last post.

In my absence quite a few things have happened, the least of which is the delay of my album (of course, one can always argue that many other events less important have occurred, such as my last haircut or the time my roommate disinfected my giant teddy bear.)

I return bearing good news, or at least news that I hope will be received well. In the past year, I've faced a lot of decision making and a bit of turmoil regarding my music. I even lost my ability to sing for two months thanks to a nasty bacterial infection. My tonsils still aren't the same, but everything works and I'm grateful for that.

However, I've decided to go ahead with the release of my solo musical debut. The track listings have changed slightly, but I'm proud of the music I've produced. I can't afford a fancy studio or professional engineers, but I've put a lot of work into my tracks to make them bearable at the least (although I prefer the term listenable.) Hopefully, you readers will find that these tracks resemble music as well.

Before I go, I'll leave you with the album art. You will be hearing from me again shortly with more details regarding the release. Let me know what you think.
