More about Andrew
Andrew Shapiro is a Brooklyn composer and songwriter who blends his two biggest musical influences: ’80s New Wave pop and Philip Glass minimalism. He has been featured in The New Yorker, ABC News, CNN, Gramophone, and Daily Candy. His cinematic piano track Mint Green has proved wildly popular with a Pandora play count of over 6 million. Shapiro’s three solo piano albums, Piano 3 (2016), Intimate Casual (2012) and Numbers, Colors and People (2009) were created with Philip Glass producer Michael Riesman.

Performance highlights include The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (Washington, D.C.), the Exit Festival (Serbia), TED, Bard College, Joe’s Pub, Gracie Mansion, Bargemusic and the Wordless Music Series at Le Poisson Rouge, New York. He was also the subject of an extensive profile in the New York Times entitled “Quarter Pounder With Keys” for his weekly Sunday solo piano performances at the Wall Street McDonald’s from 2004-2013.
