Living out of his car on a never-ending tour across the US, Andrew Tufano has captured more than his fair share of song-worthy stories. Marrying a blend of folk-americana fingerpicking and soul-stained vocals, Tufano's live show is a contiguous narrative about his experiences writing a song every morning while performing in a different city every night.

Tufano has opened for artists such as The Maine, Phillip Phillips, The Griswolds, Creed Bratton (of NBC’s The Office), Taboo (of The Black Eyed Peas), The Icarus Account, and Keaton Simons. In the past year, Tufano played over 175 shows in support of his recent pop-centric release, Fireworks in Autumn. It's single, “Fall," won grand prize in the 32nd Mid-Atlantic Song Contest.
