What the press had to say about All Those Pretty Lights:

Saving the Set List

The first time I listened to singer/songwriter Andrew Belle I knew immediately that this guy was something special. His lyrics, his voice, and his hooks all work together to form something truly enjoyable and noticeably unique.

The Soundtrack to Life

When I bounce around an artist gets 45 seconds, maybe a minute and half, and “Static Waves” made the most of its chance… congratulations Mr. Belle, you’re going to the lightning round.

Carry You Away

It feels light and free, unconstrained by any need to be overly hip or trendy… this is a very promising start for Andrew Belle.

Blog Critics

Only 24, Belle has a long, bright future ahead of him.

Andrew Belle: In His Own Words

Since I was a child, I’ve always been around music; taught to appreciate the art form but only at a reasonable distance. My parents never let me listen to the radio or any kind of secular music until I was well into High-school. Before that, in Junior high, I recall making mix tapes from local radio stations during the day, and then lying in bed at night listening to all the pop hits of that time through a small, plastic walkman that I had received a few Christmases earlier. Third Eye Blind, the Counting Crows, the Verve Pipe…these were the artists that first welcomed me into the world of meaningful pop-music. The first album that I ever bought for myself was the Counting Crow’s ‘August and Everything After’ when I was a sophomore in High-school. It had already been out for several years at that point, but I can still remember sneaking it up to my room and listening to it very softly out of the dusty Sony boom-box in my bedroom; pouring over every melody and marveling over the lyrical genious in Adam Duritz; thinking, ‘maybe I can do this someday?’ Not that I think of myself now as important to music as Adam Duritz or the Counting Crows have been, nor do I even dare to compare myself to such talent, but thinking back on my earliest experiences with music, there is no doubt that those quiet moments spent alone in my bedroom shaped my desires and passions and gave me the hope to make my small mark on this world, one song at a time.
