Andrew hits Agassiz stage

Local musician back in town for single show at Jimmy's

Agassiz’s favourite local singer is back in town for one night only, performing at Jimmy’s Pub, Saturday, Feb. 15.

Andrew Christopher was born and raised in Agassiz. Currently living in the lower mainland, his music is acoustically based with a blend of alt/rock, country and pop.  He released his first solo album titled Gone (the title track, dedicated to those who have lost a child to cancer) on Dec. 1, 2012.  He is playing anywhere and everywhere he can to support this album.

Music has always been a huge part of Christopher’s life, but is wasn’t until a trip to Australia in 2008 where he spent the year busking his way around the country, that he realized his true passion for music. He later returned home to join Pardon My Striptease in 2009. His first gig with the band happened to be at Carnegie Hall in New York. He has been invited to share the stage and sing hit songs with the likes of Mike Reno from Loverboy and State of Shock.

It was with PMS that he wrote the song Pray (for LJ), which the band released in December of 2011. It became the most downloaded song in Canada, and catapulted to the Top 20 on Canada’s billboard charts, raising $110,000 for BC Children’s Hospital, where his daughter, Lilee, spent endless hours battling cancer and eventually succumbed to this awful disease. Motivation and drive are no problem after all he has been through and Christopher is determined to make music his career.

Tickets are available at Jimmy’s Pub. The pub is open at 11 a.m. and Andrew is taking the stage at 9 p.m.
