Andrew Leahey‘s second album Airwaves was penned after surviving a life-threatening brain surgery. The new LP is a nostalgic take on the rock n’ roll radio hits of the 1980s. Also a decorated guitarist, the Richmond, Virginia-raised singer/songwriter, who grew up on the sounds of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, gets to make 11 songs that are reminiscent of that golden era. “Remember This”, highlighted” above, is a track that properly illustrates the album’s theme.
“This record is rooted in the sound of a band playing live,” Leahey says. “Everything was written on tour, with last night’s show still ringing in my ears, and a lot of it was road-tested. To me, this kind of rock & roll never left. It’s always on my stereo. It’s always in the air. We’re torchbearers of a sound that’s bigger than us, and we’re gonna keep the fire burning.“
