About Andrew Antone
Andrew Antone first appeared on the music scene in early 2003 with the release, I Can't Help Falling in Love (2003). After his national television debut on the late night talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Andrew quickly left the music scene when his voice started changing. Coinciding with high school graduation, Andrew began refocusing on his music career, resulting in a brand new album, I Will Love Again (2006), featuring his powerful and sophisticated adult voice. Once again, time was not on Andrew's side as he was forced to make the difficult choice to step back from the music scene to concentrate on his education. As a full time University student, Andrew's schedule left him little time to record and promote his music. This time away from the industry has allowed Andrew to grow intellectually, physically and emotionally. In the summer of 2006, Andrew began writing very personal, intimate original material for what will be his next project. With college graduation just around the corner in the spring of 2009, Andrew is ready to dedicate all of his energy to his music and plans to return to the recording studio in the fall to work on his first all-original album.
