People have lost their homes, they've lost their jobs, their livelihoods, their dignity. Look at the person sitting next to you. This person is educated, bright, maybe lives in the suburbs, supports a family of four. One misstep and your neighbor could be reaching out next month for help.

Andrew Greacen, is a singer/songwriter and recording engineer from Syracuse NY. In May of 2010 he released his first solo album "Soul Searching." Wether in the studio recording and producing new music or out on the road playing shows throughout New England, Andrew has set out to create a career in music. If there was any one actually born to be a musician, it was Andrew Greacen. As an infant his parents would put headphones on him and play records. His love for melody and rhythm definitely come through in his recorded work, combined with a groovy mix of acoustic, soul, R&B and pop. Anyone who knows Andrew will tell you, he's a do-it-yourself musician. Although, someday, he hopes to have a manager, he has an impressive understanding for personal engagement and the necessity to spend a good amount of time "stirring the pot." Andrew is currently working on another studio album as well as creating his second music video for the song Sunshine.
