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 in 2015 and they are preparing for a full length release for fall 2018.
Since their debut album, Andrew has been busy making waves around the east coast. Burning through the Night was nominated for 2 Music PEI awards in 2016, winning Rock Recording of the Year, and was also nominated in 2017 for Group Recording OTY and Songwriter OTY.
In addition to working in the studio, Waite is coming off a successful Atlantic Songwriter’s tour, presented by SOCAN and Atlantic Presenter’s Association, including Ian Sherwood (NS), Mike Biggar (NB), Jordan Musyscyan (Cape Breton) and Jon Pyke (NL). He recently showcased at the 2017 East Coast Music Awards’ Rising Star and Bluebird North stages, as well as the Music PEI Rock Stage, Songwriter of the Year Stage and was a participant in the Canadian Songsmith Sessions, writing two original songs with award winning blues artist, Ross Neilson.
Andrew Waite & the Firm are looking forward to a spring tour in support of the release of their new single, Out & Out. They are also the founders of an educational outreach program, Island Rock Camps, which delivers music education in rock and pop genres to students ages 9 - 16 (www.islandrockcamps.com).
