NEW YORK, NY (October 9, 2015) — ANDREW WATT releases his debut solo EP, Ghost In My Head [John Varvatos Records/Republic Records], online at all digital retailers today.
The rock & roll singer, songwriter, producer, and guitarist has already earned the endorsement of some of the genre’s legends, and the new music proves why. First single and title track “Ghost In My Head” struts through thick distortion with a shimmying blues riff and staggering vocal delivery.
Of the song, Pure Volume wrote, “(it) features heavy guitars, pulsating drums and a rhythm that’s easy to remember,” and added the EP is “a must hear for anyone who loves some good ol’ fashioned rock.”
Recently, iconic Jane’s Addiction front man Perry Farrell personally invited WATT to open up for the band’s October 24 full-performance of their classic Ritual de lo Habitual in San Francisco at The Warfield. He hits the road with The Struts starting November 1. The entire itinerary is included below.
Born in New York and now based in Los Angeles, rock ‘n’ roll was part of ANDREW WATT’s destiny. He conjured up a striking and soulful sound after touring and writing with numerous artists across genres since the age of 16. 2013 saw him co-found California Breed with Glenn Hughes [Deep Purple] and Jason Bonham [Foreigner and Led Zeppelin], release the group’s incendiary full-length debut, and toured with Slash and many others.
WATT is also a producer, songwriter and musical director working with artists across multiple genres including Justin Bieber & Skrillex, Kygo, DJ Snake, Cody Simpson, SNBRN and more.
A devout California Breed fan, John Varvatos asked to hear Andrew’s solo music and offered him a deal in 2015. GHOST IN MY HEAD is produced by Alain Johannes [Eleven, Queens of the Stone Age,
Them Crooked Vultures] and features Chad Smith [Red Hot Chili Peppers] and Joey Castillo [ex-Queens of the Stone Age, Danzig] on the drum throne. It’s pure and unadulterated rock music.
