“The music and arrangements...are full of warmth and beauty. The lyrics are packed with scriptural reflections and spiritual encouragement.” - UTR Media
Andrew Haines is a singer-songwriter from the Chicago area who poetically weaves scriptural themes with well-crafted music. Both his debut album Dig Awhile (2020), along with his follow-up project Where the Song Began (2022), feature a talented cast of musicians who help to bring the songs to life. His writing is poetically creative and imaginative, and his songs often include scriptural references and spiritual themes that meander off the beaten path (UTR Media).
Haines has shared the stage with artists such as Jason Gray, Carolyn Arends, Eric Peters, Mitch McVicker, Alathea, and others. In 2022, he opened for Colten Dixon and Sidewalk Prophets at a large outdoor music festival. His concerts often feature a unique, live-looping experience for the audience in which he becomes a sort of "one man band," and every concert includes a cover of a Rich Mullins song to honor his musical hero. His mission is to bless the church with music that encourages people to seek the Lord and dig deeper into the scriptures.
