Clou9 One Take Contest 2018
Clou9, (Andrew Landsman) Born in Warwick, Ny, a small town in the mountains June 21 1993, grew up into a family of musicians. His early childhood he quickly moved from The Catskill Mountains of New York to the Jersey Shore in the summer of 1996 where he was raised through most of his life up until the end of his high school career. He began his musical journey at a young age, getting into jazz music and all- time best selling musicians such as Van Morrison, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, and other artists of that nature. As he got older his musical influences changed and varied but were exponential in forming his style. From Heavy Metal, (Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold) to Classic rock (Guns N Roses) To hip hop/ rob (50 cent, b2k, J Cole, Jeremiah) to so many other genres. Andrew took a strong interest in performing arts such as acting and music, so much so that by the time he was a teen he had already been writing a producing his own music, this has continued as he entered manhood. Clou9 has been traveling the last few years on the East Coast of the U.S, maintaining and saving while building and creating relationships and executing moves for his music and brand. Djaying his way up and down from Jersey to Florida, he has built his name and has turned djaying into his main source of income and main source of funding himself. On top of being a DJ he takes most pride in being an artist. By age 12 Clou9 picked up guitar and immediately began to excel with it as well as other instruments such as bass and piano. The beats and sounds he creates and the music he produces, as well as his lyrical content is what stands out in this young man. Although he basically lived at the Jersey Shore out of his life, he’s become attached to the Sunshine State and feels as though south Florida serves as a second home to him. Andrew is a very determined, hardworking, yet humble individual, his potential for success in the music industry and entertainment industry is limitless.
