Andrew SudderthMusic Director
Not having been born into a particularly musical family, and growing up in the rural Texas town of Sulphur Springs, presented Andrew with obvious challenges when it came to the realm of music discovery. He took guitar lessons on and off throughout his childhood and took advantage of school-provided choral programs. Later in high school Andrew formed progressive rock band Fair to Midland which came to be one of Dallas’ biggest drawing local acts, resulting in catching the eyes and ears of international music communities. Fair to Midland eventually signed with Universal Records for their first international release and later with EOne for their second. Andrew worked under producer David Bottrill (King Crimson, Tool, Muse) during the making of Fair to Midland’s first record and later under Grammy award winner Joe Baressi (Queens of the Stone Age, Bad Religion) for Fair to Midland’s sophomore effort. Andrew also earned co-production credits on the group’s second album. It was also during the making of Fair to Midland’s first record Andrew trained under vocal instructor Ron Anderson, who worked with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Chris Cornell, and more. Fair to Midland not only played a number of prestigious festivals (i.e. Coachella, Download, Rock Am Ring/Rock Am Park), but also played with The Smashing Pumpkins, Alice in Chains, Amy Winehouse and System of a Down.
