Andrew Waite & the Firm is a gutsy roots-rock band based out of Charlottetown, PEI. An acute collective of heavy-hitters, the group delivers a relentless performance with rich harmonies and explorative soundscapes. Waite’s songwriting is honest, rugged, and evocative. Their debut EP, Burning Through the Night, was released September, 2015.
Burning Through the Night was recorded at the Sound Mill Studio, with Jon Matthews. The self-produced EP promises great sonic diversity, with a polished sound. The first single, Someone To Hold Me, was released in February 2015. A regional finalist in CBC’s annual Searchlight competition, the track garnered the attention of CBC’s Grant Lawrence, who selected the track as one of his third round stand-outs. “If The Band came from Charlottetown, they might sounds a lot like Andrew Waite & the Firm” stated Lawrence, “ [Someone To Hold Me]… could easily have audiences on a national scale swaying back and forth to this chorus”
Andrew Waite & the Firm have developed and maintained a loyal and consistent following in the Charlottetown music scene. Since their debut performance in December, 2014, they have shared stages with Slowcoaster, The Sadies, The Novaks, Coyote, The Meds, and Liam Corcoran. They have garnered further attention with the success of their title track, Burning Through the Night (feat. Irish Mythen) reaching #1 on the East Coast Countdown.
