ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Visions and Revisions” introduces new songs as well as creative revisitations of older songs with renowned producers: Sam Kassirer, Grammy Winner Malcolm Burn, Grammy Nominee Felix McTeigue, Roger Greenawalt, and Kaia Fischer (Rainer Maria).

Vladeck has been a fixture on the New York music scene since the 90s when he made a name for himself with his songwriting and creative adaptation of old instruments (autoharp, banjo-ukulele, banjo). Vladeck's musical journey started with a good fortune: a guitar lesson from his first inspiration, his father's cousin, grammy-nominated Americana legend David Bromberg, who picked out his first guitar, a Martin D-18. After college Vladeck worked by day as an Urban Park Ranger in NYC's Central Park. He become known as "The Singing Ranger," and performed for park events city wide. By night he hot-wired his instruments with pick ups in order to play them with his 9-piece big band in clubs downtown (a sound captured on his 2004 debut Andrew Vladeck LP). He was voted The Deli Magazine’s NYC Artist of the Month and acclaimed in NYC's late Village Voice.

Over the years he has shared bills with The National, Andrew Bird, Norah Jones, David Johanesen (& The Harry Smiths), Soulive, Beth Orton, Moe., Jeff Buckley, Ani DiFranco, and many more. He's sat in with one of his personal favorites, musician/activist Bhi Bhiman. He contributed vocals to a whimsical project of Mike Gordon (Phish) about legendary bass player Joey Arkenstat. He contributed a song to the compilation Occupy this Album. He's gotten to meet his heroes Allen Ginsburg and Pete Seeger. Smaller highlights include when David Byrne signed his mailing list after Vladeck's album release concert at the Bowery Ballroom – and when Bruce Springsteen literally ran into him coming out of an elevator in midtown.

Vladeck’s last record, Fireships (2015), features instrumental stylings from legendary composer David Amram, Sydney Wayser (Clara Nova), guitar great Adam Levy, songwriter Lauren Balthrop, and many more. The album was Voted Best of 2016 by The New York Music Daily and was featured in the Huffington Post, Guitar World, Daytrotter, charted on college radio, played the Voice of America – live from Washington DC, and toured the US and Europe.

Vladeck's songwriting has garnered First Place in the International Songwriting Competition (for "The Songs You Inspire") and multiple honors from Billboard World Song Contest (for 4 songs off the debut album), two Great American Song Contest Semi-Finalist awards (for "Gush" and also "Countdown Time" co-written with Adam Levy), UK Songwriting Awards Semi-Finalist (for "Some Damn Reason" co-written with Jillian Arciero aka Jillian Jacqueline).

Vladeck, along with actor/activist Adrian Grenier and filmmaker Ari Gold, was founding member of 00's Appalachian Glam-Rock band The Honey Brothers. They released three albums, toured four continents, played main stages at music festivals such as Osheaga, All Points West, Bumbershoot. Interesting things happened. Marky Ramone sat in on drums in Cleveland, and Amanda Palmer sat in with them at Wanderlust. All in all it was a very fortunate and very weird time.
