Not every party is a good time. The setting is often a complex and sometimes intensified intersection of relationships, social circles and personalities, which makes it the perfect topic for a concept album. Canadian singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Andy Shauf did just that, using his observational powers and own social awkwardness as fodder for his third album, The Party.
In this return to Studio A, he shares a couple songs from this new collection (which he once again wrote, played and produced), and we chat about his two new record deals and what parties are like for him.
