Dynamic and determined are just two words that can best describe Halifax, NS born country artist, Andrew Frelick!
Growing up in nearby Bridgewater, NS, Andrew is a natural talent delivering rich vocals, country guitar, and a polished live off the floor sound. Rapidly building momentum following artist showcase performances during the 2015 CMA Fest & CCMA weeks, Andrew is making his mark in country music, and is definitely one to watch.
Releasing Music Nova Scotia’s 2016 nominated “Country Recording of the Year” in August 2015, “Time Stands Still” both fuelled Frelick’s growth as a country artist, and added to his credibility as a proficient songwriter with co-writes on four of the six tracks.
A single/demo version of “Spread Some Good Time Around” was released early 2015 and finished as a regional semi finalist in the CBC Searchlight 2015 contest. Additionally "SSGTA" reached a high of #18 in June 2015 on “The Iceman's Top 40 New Artist Country Countdown” which airs on BestCountryRadio.Com. As a result of the song's success, Andrew was invited to perform in Nashville, TN on June 14th during CMA Fest 2015 on stages sponsored by Robert Golomboski (The Iceman), KORE PR, NStyle Country, Tunesmith Entertainment, and 101.5FM "THE ONE". The venues of Boot Barn, Plush Ultra Lounge, & George Jones Entertainment Complex were right in the heart of downtown Nashville during the largest country music festival of the year.
Soon after, “Without You I’ve Got Nothing” was released exclusively to online radio and reached a high of #8 on the same countdown, as well as #5 on popular Chicago based “Country Blast Radio“. This paved the way for Frelick’s first official music video which was filmed and produced by Ora Walker. The video, filmed at the spectacular Peggy’s Cove, NS, as well as several other downtown Halifax, NS locations, is the perfect visual match for such a well written song by co-writers Doug Folkins and Codie Prevost.
After gaining a substantial following online, Andrew has a clear vision and has his sights set on mainstream radio charts. The EP, "Time Stands Still", produced by veteran Nashville Producer Chip Hardy, released to iTunes on 08/22/15, and within 48 hours of its release, became a "New and Noteworthy" album for the country genre and reached #78 on Top Canadian Country Albums on iTunes. The first single from the EP, “UNLOVE YOU”, was released to Canadian Country Radio via Lauren Tutty Radio Promotions on 08/24/15, and has seen success and received positive feedback from online & terrestrial stations coast to coast. The follow up radio release "Time Stands Still", released in January 2016, also via Lauren Tutty Radio Promotions, and has continued momentum and aided in the growing popularity of artist, Andrew Frelick.
Andrew continues to support the Nashville recorded album “Time Stands Still”, through radio releases, interviews, and performance dates which have included LIVE performances during the 2015 & 2016 Josie Music Awards (Country Blast Radio) in Nashville, TN. It was there he was nominated for three awards in 2015 and seven in 2016, taking home wins in two 2016 categories : “Country Blast Charting Award” & “Modern Country Male Artist – Song of the Year - Unlove You”.
After an early 2016 radio release of the song “Time Stands Still” via Lauren Tutty Promotions, Andrew is set to once again release brand new music to radio via Tutty called “When I Was Little” on October 10th 2016. This, the title track to Andrew’s second Nashville recorded EP with Producer Chip Hardy, will simultaneously release to radio as the EP releases to digital distribution everywhere.
