Andrew Mancilla’s (www.AndrewMancilla.com) musicianship is driven by his love for writing.
Writing for Andrew began at a young age and has since developed into a full-fledged obsession. His taste in lyrics and melodies have been molded by teenage years spent teaching himself the guitar, and college years spent in theater and jazz. After college and upon entering law school, Andrew continued to fine tune his writing skills while simultaneously teaching himself to play the piano and completing his first solo album, “Static.”
Andrew released “Static” on September 18, 2010, at The Bitter End to a crowd of over 50. Since the release, Andrew has played over ten shows throughout New York City, recieved radio rotation, and has been approached to perform on a television show. One of Andrew’s tunes, “Fill Me Up,” off of Static, has been licensed by an international feature film and many others have expressed similar interest.
Andrew has become a prolific singer-songwriter who gigs as often as time will allow. His passion for music has helped him connect with extraordinary musicians such as Snarky Puppy's Mike League and Stefani Germanotta, who Andrew opened for before she became known as Lady Gaga. Charismatic and direct, Andrew’s joint musical and legal approach to the entertainment industry is setting new standards.
Andrew returned to the studio to record two more tunes in February 2011. Simultaneously, he has recruited a team to film a music video for "My Voice." The music video will be released by summer and Andrew will continue to release music throughout 2011.
