Interview: From Television Hit To Solo Career; Andrew Butcher
From the television hit, Boyband to pursuing a solo musical career, Andrew Butcher releases debut single and we're addicted. Butcher discuss the inspiration behind single 'You Were There', experince on Boyband, and Riverdale.
Thank you for chatting with Music Update Central! In November, you released your single 'You Were There'. What's the inspiration behind the song? The inspiration behind "You Were There" is basically the fact that it's my first single I’ve ever released on my own! It's about a young guy who is in love with a girl and he comes to find out that she is not as invested in the relationship as he thought. In the video he finds another love in the end and he is basically telling her, “oh well, you were there, but now your not."
You were on the television show, Boy Band. What did you learn from being on the show? What was this experience like? I learned many unique things. Such as how to properly train your vocal chords and how to rest them. I worked with Tim Davis who was the vocal producer for the show. Tim worked on 6 seasons of the hit TV series "Glee" and I'm still in touch with Tim to this day. I also learned that if you want something bad enough, you need to put in as much practice and work as you possibly can. The experience was unexplainable! I made a lot of lifelong friendships. it was very tiring, very entertaining, and very, very fun to experience and to be a part of!
What can fans/listeners expect in 2018? They can expect an album, and merchandise, and more music and updates coming from myself and all of my social medias. I've been writing a lot of songs and you can expect a lot from me coming up!
When did you know that you wanted to pursue a musical career? I started early and sang in the local band in my hometown of Greenwood, Indiana, but once I was around 14 or 15 years old I really started taking it seriously. Music is basically my life now.
MUC Random Question: What's your favorite TV show? My favorite Television show is Riverdale. I absolutely love it!
