Alt-Country singer/songwriter Andrew Wiscombe is the embodiment of American reality. Born into blue collar America, he was raised in her rural landscapes, educated in her schools, and a soldier in her wars. A former Army sniper turned Berklee trained troubadour, Wiscombe sings for the forgotten folks on the fringes – rarely recognized, scarcely celebrated. His work clothes emotions in American roots music to tell stories of everyday life through the eyes of a child, the hands of a working man, the warm embrace of a father, or the scope of a sniper rifle. His roughhewn music has drawn comparisons to legends like Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, and Ryan Adams.
His third album, A Greene Street Manifesto (released August 20, 2018 through Sonic Valley Records), delivers 10 brand new stories as told with blazing harmonica, rolling guitars, foot-stompin’ kick drum, and Wiscombe’s signature vocal twang. The album was written during Wiscombe’s first international tour and is a follow up to 2017’s Indiana and his 2016 work with Operation Encore: A Veteran Music Project. Co-produced by Wiscombe and Dave Cebrowski at Stony View Sound in Spanish Fork, Utah.

“I met Andrew Wiscombe earlier this year while hosting the Songwriter Shootout. His songs have a depth and passion to them that is such a breath of fresh air in this scene.” – Anthony Q., Executive Director for the Chattanooga Songwriters Association / Chattanooga, TN
“It’s evident that Wiscombe is a polished performer. Self depreciating humor, confident movements, simple song explanations, and bold-but-practiced vocal choices were all prominent from the get-go, creating an easily accessible performance….His pitch is perfect – it’s like listening to a record. A passionate performer, he makes you want to listen…..Beautiful Narrative….Absolutely Soul-Stirring….Wiscombe is a true showman.” – Zach C., Reach Provo Magazine / Provo, UT
“As Wiscombe took to the stage with just his guitar in hand, he seemed like just a solo artist. That was before he strummed his first chord. Once Wiscombe began to play, it was as if he was not the only one up on stage. Wiscombe’s ability to fill the room with his playing was easy to hear from the first note…impressive”. – Matheson K., Writer, The Rustbelt Chronicles / Cleveland, OH
