We are thrilled to announce that the Albumism family is expanding with the very welcome addition of Andy Healy! A multi-dimensional talent of many stripes, Andy brings a fresh and knowledgeable perspective to the Albumism fold. We look forward to Andy’s contributions in the future and encourage our readers to check out his recent debut article, a review of Lorde’s sophomore album Melodrama.
“As a passionate music lover and writer, Albumism is all that is good in the world,” Andy says. “A celebration of great music by like-minded, passionate people. It brings the focus back on music, and more particularly the album, as an art form—a full conversation from artist to listener. In a world of fleeting digital, single track downloads the listening experience of really deep diving into an album is being lost. Through Albumism’s articles and reviews, the journey of the album as a dying art form is being resurrected.”
More about Andy:
Andy is an insatiable pop culture junkie. With over 6,000 CDs and vinyl records (and growing) in his collection, his passion for music has no bounds and his tastes border on the side of widely eclectic. When he's not listening to music, Andy is busy writing or creating his own as a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. Born in Sydney, Australia, Andy has always been fascinated with music and writing, penning his first song at age 5 and his first set of short stories at age 9.
With a successful career in advertising to fuel his creative outlets, Andy has expanded his love of storytelling into screenwriting and teleplays. As a writer, Andy has helmed the acclaimed MJ101 series dealing with the artistry and creative journey of Michael Jackson covering everything from 101 Greatest Songs to Greatest Short Films and Performances. When he's not tapping away at the keyboard or scribbling away with pen in hand (always black), you'll find him in a darkened cinema, taking in another live show or on the hunt for the world's best donut, which he says is currently being won by Tim Hortons of Canada.
