Here I am...this is me

My name is Andrei. I am a former corporate employee (read misfit) who, in the midst of a global pandemic, decided this is a good time to start my music career. My main influences in music are Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica, and Rise Against.

I originally started with Orchestral Covers back in February 2020, when I saw a comment on a YouTube orchestral medley video saying something like "if someone tells you metal isn't music, send them this video". That's what gave me the idea of doing a full orchestral cover EP of certain rock and metal songs.

I then moved on to heavy metal releases, which you can find on my Spotify account. I am also in other places.

So, what's the deal with me and music?

Music has been in my life since 1994. I first started playing the piano in 1994 and then moved on to guitar in 2005. I've garnered a lot of information about a whole host of instruments since then (see also, my orchestral covers), and even though I may not be able to play them all, I've learned a great deal about how you can best combine them to create an epic masterpiece.

Who's the one doing God's work with that art?

That would be Andreea Moraru. Give her a follow on Instagram.

Haven't I seen your name on some other blog?

It may very well be the case. I also write from time to time on the Upstack blog and on Medium.

Got any questions?

For any and all questions, feel free to message me.
