♪worthy #1 I hail from the island of St. Croix, same as NBA player, Tim Duncan. ♪worthy #2 I have lived overseas twice, in Madrid, and Oxford, England. ♪worthy #3 Anduze is the name of a small village in Southern France where my ancestry can be traced back to. ♪worthy #4 Michael Jackson and Kermit the Frog are my earliest musical influences...
In a genre that belongs to such crooners as Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, and Otis Redding, authenticity is a requirement. Over the years, many have imitated and borrowed from these artists, but when you come across the real thing you will recognize it instantly.
Anduze is a soul artist to the core, no doubt about it. But it is soul done his way -a modern brand that seems to reflect the diversity of his island upbringing. Growing up on St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands certainly contributed to Anduze’s musical imagination. His myriad of influences is so vast that it leaves critics unable to deem him directly comparable to anyone else, a refreshing antidote for today’s derivative music world.
Over the past few years, Anduze has collaborated with Austrian producer and DJ, Parov Stelar, who prevails as one of the top artists in the Electro Swing genre. Using this association as a springboard into the Electronic world, Anduze has many projects in the works with plans to release throughout the year.
NYCROPHONE Note: Not taking away any of his musical uniqueness, but he could be described as a more soulful and funkier version of Robin Thicke, edgier and smooth as S#%*! Our favorites: “Blindfold” and “Studio Apt. (Feat. Laura J. Evans)”
