Andy Poxon has been called “a complete and mature musician, … already developed past his years, and ready to lead us all into the future of pure American blues and roots music,” by legendary blues guitarist Duke Robillard. He has released three albums of original music on the Ellersoul Records label, including the Robillard produced Tomorrow (2013) and You Must Be Crazy! (2015), produced by Grammy-winning pianist Kevin McKendree. These albums have received extensive airplay on B.B. King’s Bluesville station on SiriusXM radio, and have been nominated for numerous awards. Poxon has performed across the United States and Canada, with performance highlights including the Sacramento Music Festival, Festival d’été de Québec, and the Kennedy Center.
In addition to blues, Poxon is also a rising classical guitarist, having won first prize in the James Stroud All-Ohio Guitar Competition in 2017 and the Appalachian Guitarfest Solo Guitar Competition Undergraduate Division in 2015. He is also an accomplished arranger, having his arrangements performed by Grammy-winning artists such as Jason Vieaux, Anne Akiko Meyers, and Sasha Cooke. Poxon recently received his Master of Music degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music, studying under Jason Vieaux and Colin Davin, after receiving his Bachelor of Music degree from Towson University in 2015, under Troy King.
