Andrew Sheldon is quickly emerging as one of our music scene’s hardest workers.
Not only does he book the monthly Living Room Sessions at Scratch inside of Easton Public Market, but the Easton-based singer-songwriter has just released a three-track, self-titled EP under his solo project, Mt. Shasta.
The three songs – “Not Myself,” “Damage,” and “I Hate a Roman Named Status Quo” – were written and produced entirely by Sheldon. Listeners can expect a unique tradeoff between acoustic folk and rich, layered soundscapes, making the nearly 23-minute journey fascinatingly minimalist and ambient, all at once. The closing track is particularly true to its name, offering two short lyrical stanzas before giving way to a wall of varying sounds and textures that are driven forward by simple piano chords.
