Andy Frasco’s first exposure to the music industry came not onstage, but rather in an office. As a young teenager, he worked with legendary indie label Drive-Thru Records and helped book bands like Hello Goodbye, and by the time he turned 18, he’d already moved to New York City for a gig with Atlantic Records. When the job fell through, though, Frasco made a leap of faith and decided to launch his own career as an artist, taking everything he’d learned working with other bands and applying it to himself.

Like many, the pandemic hit Andy hard. He was once again feeling that ‘breaking point’ and he quickly transformed his high energy road show into a year long digital blitz of new music, a 33 episode variety show (Andy Frasco’s World Saving ShitShow) which garnered 20 million views, a highly attended digital Dance Party and Andy further developed his already successful, and compelling podcast (Andy Frasco’s World Saving Podcast). His variety show and podcast included interviews and musical performances by many notable guests such as Tony Hawk, Steve Van Zandt, Bert Kreischer, Kurt Vile, Nathaniel Rateliff, Melissa Etheridge, Béla Fleck, Kamasi Washington, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, and more.

His split from music didn’t last long, however. When he realized he was about to go back on the road in 2021, Frasco decided it was time to sink or swim. He needed an album’s worth of new music and he had 30 days to do it. What followed was a whirlwind tour of the country during which he collaborated with scores of musicians to create Wash, Rinse, Repeat, which drops April 8th via his own label, Fun Machine Records. “This was my chance to learn my craft and fall in love with songwriting again,” he says. “This is me. This is how I feel. I’m not trying to write songs for other people anymore. I’m just trying to write songs that help me. And hopefully through that, help others, too.”

Andy Frasco on “Grow Old”

“Grow Old” is a song about not giving up on love before it even has a chance to bloom. We seem to run away from love when the going gets tough, but what I’m realizing as I get older is that true love doesn’t just come without effort. It takes work, and it takes going through the full cycle of emotions to really let that love blossom like a flower.
