It

felt like time

to

switch gears.

In

2017,

Andy Frasco reached a fork

in

the road. Renowned for a jubilant jambalaya

of

rule-breaking

rock n roll his career kept rolling ahead

at

full steam.

To

date,

he

had released three independent

albums, chronicled a German gig

in

front

of

15,000 screaming fans

on

the recent live opus

Songs from

the Road

, made jaws drop

at

festivals such

as

Grandoozy,

Firefly

, Mountain Jam, Summer Camp, Rock

Am

Ring, Rock

Im

Park and

Electric Forest,

generated millions

of

streams, launched

Andy Frasco

s

World Saving Podcast

, and performed

at

festivals alongside icons such

as

Peter Frampton,

Gary

Clark

Jr., The Revivalists, Snoop Dog, Dr. Dog, Joe Walsh and Kendrick

Lamar,

to

name a few.

After a string

of

wild shows

(and wilder nights)

on

tour somewhere

in

the heart

of

America, one

morning sounded a very loud wakeup call for the singer, songwriter, perfo

rmer, and namesake

of

Andy

Frasco & The U.N.

͞

I woke

up

after a five-day bender

on

cocaine,

͟

he

recalls.

͞

This relationship I was

in

didn

t work out. I

bought a house

in

t

he

Midwest

to

be

close

to

a girl, but she didn

t trust me. I wouldn

t trust

me

either,

because I was fucking chicks and doing drugs every night

on

the road. I would take ecstasy just

to

get

out

of

bed. I was sleep deprived, losing all

of

my

friendships,

an

d fucking overworked. I decided

to

make

a change

in

my

life. I realized that I

m getting older; I couldn

t only

be

the party guy. I wanted

to

chronicle

my

life. I wanted

to

capture

my

feelings. I wanted substance

in

my

life and music. I decided

to

take a step back from this wild life for a second and reevaluate,

so

I could genuinely enjoy the ride I

m

on

for the long haul.

͟

The ride ramps

up

on

his third full-length album, the aptly titled

Change

of

Pace

. Andy approached

recording from a new vantage point encouraged

by

iconic Widespread Panic bassist and producer Dave

Schools.

At

sessions

in

a remote Sonoma County mountain studio

in

a converted chicken coop

of

all places,

Schools challenged him

as

a songwriter and lyricist.

͞

Dave sat

me

down and asked,

Who

do

you want

to

be? What

do

you want

to

be

remembered

by?

,

͟

recalls Andy.

͞

I never really thought

of

it

that way.

He

dialed things back for me.

He

s become a

huge inspiration

to

me

as

a musician and a friend. The album began there.

͟

Cutting six songs with Dave,

he

embarked

on

something

of

a

studio tour

to

finish

Change

of

Pace

.

He

tapped the talents

of

Ben Ellman

in

New Orleans, Charles Goodan

in

Los Angeles, and Caleb Hawley

in

New York

at

Lady Gaga

s Atomic Studios.

As

a result, the songs reflect the respective regions.

͞

There

s a grungy Bourbon street feel, hard-working and moody New York energy,

and that indie

California vibe,

͟

he

goes on.

͞

I

m a traveler

at

the end

of

the day. I became a musician

to

travel and give

people therapy through music.

As

p

art

of

this revelation, I realized I don

t need

to

stay

at

home when I

m off tour. I decided since I

m most comfortable

on

the road,

so

I might

as

well make this record

on

the

road.

͟

The first single

͞

Up/Down

͟

slips from a simmering beat and bass line into a horn-driven swoo

n.

Produced

by

Goodan, its undeniable refrain proves immediately irresistible

as

he

sings,

Your love

is

up

and down.
