Andrew Belle – Sister

Andrew Belle is a Chicago based singer-songwriter. He released his debut album, The Ladder, in 2010 and its follow up, Black Bear, in 2013. Along with these albums, Andrew has self-released two EPs, All Those Pretty Lights and The Daylight. On the theme of his upcoming album, Andrew refers to an excerpt from Clive Staples Lewis’s 1955 autobiography, Surprised by Joy: “The odd thing was that before God closed in on me, I was in fact offered what now appears a moment of wholly free choice. I became aware that I was holding something at bay, or shutting something out. I could open the door or keep it shut. I chose to open. I say, “I chose,” yet it did not really seem possible to do the opposite.” While Andrew’s early vocal performances have drawn comparisons to Mat Kearney and Greg Laswell, his newest work shows strong musical influence from alternative artists such as Beach House, Washed Out, M83, and Bon Iver. Andrew’s nuanced melodies are strengthened by thoughtful, contemplative lyrics, and have served as a soundtrack to numerous hit television shows, including: Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, Castle, and Vampire Diaries. In 2009, Andrew was presented with awards for John Lennon Pop-Songwriting and MTV Chicago’s Best Breakout Artist. The Ladder was acknowledged by iTunes as a part of their Rewind: Best of 2010 list. Since releasing The Ladder, Andrew has spent the past three years traveling and performing with friends such as Katie Herzig, Greg Laswell, Ben Rector, Madi Diaz, The Milk Carton Kids, and is thrilled to be a part of the critically acclaimed national touring group Ten Out Of Tenn.

Andrew Belle – Sister Lyrics:
Sister I remember
Mother kept happy when she could
Weather in December
Never felt as warm as it should
You were like a feather
Never land where we thought you would
Or anywhere close to it
Who would have thought you never would

So tell me what happens

When the waves break
And you’re surrounded
He tries to kill you
And you allow it

Sister I remember
The morning light on evergreen
What seemed like forever
Was just my mind escaping me
Imitation leather
The smell of blood left on the seat
Was that your way of proving
We look the same from underneath

So tell me what happens

When the waves break
And you’re surrounded
He tries to kill you
And you allow it
And you allow it

Over and over he says
I surround you
I surround you
I never leave my beloved
I’ve found you

I surround you. I surround you, I
I never leave my beloved
I’ve found you.
