ANDY STOKES has been sharing his soulful voice and undeniable musical mastery with the Northwest music culture for more than three decades. An inductee to Oregon’s Music Hall Of Fame, multiple regional music awards (including best Artist, Male Vocalist, Band of the Year), years of preforming as a headliner at Paul Allen's New Year's Eve party's at the then EMP in in the shadow of the Space Needle—Andy’s Northwest roots are deep. A graduate of Lakes High School in the Tacoma Washington area and the University of Oregon—living for decades in Oregon and currently residing in the Seattle area, the Northwest’s King of Soul Music continues performing to sold-out crowds at iconic venues throughout the Northwest and beyond. And as all Kings are known to be rich, Andy is indeed beyond rich in experience. As the lead vocalist with the legendary funk band Cool’R, Andy signed with the renowned A&M Records, and toured worldwide as a featured artist with the likes of The Stylistics, Michael Bolton, George Clinton, The Temptations as well as many others. The Acclaimed singer is now back with a brilliant single entitled ’Best Day Ever’, from his upcoming EP ’Now’. The EP features production and collaborations with some of the music industry’s best, including BMI award winner PK, multi-platinum songwriter Eric Dawkins, super-producer DJ Battlecat and the legendary Snoop Dogg— just to name a few. The ‘Now’ EP is a spectrum of feel-good songs that are superbly crafted to immerse the listener in a soulful journey emphasizing love, life, and relationships. With millions of views and streams of Andy’s prior releases, including the 2016/17 EP ‘Full Circle', as well as a music video mini-series that was premiered by the Soul Train award-winning blog ‘This is RnB.com’, Andy’s music will make any true R&B lover swoon. Powerful ballads and funky, heart-pumping grooves, together with Andy's silky smooth R&B style and the gritty emotion that is unique to this legendary vocalist— the question arises, where has this timeless sound been for the last decade? Thankfully Now, it is back, making today the Best Day Ever.
Andy Stokes has been bringing his gritty, soulful voice to the NW as far back as the 80’s, when he led the funk group Cool’R, and later took on the moniker as “Oregon’s King of Soul.” The talented singer is now back with a brand new song that has a great adult soul feel to it. “Promise” sounds like the kind of love song that Charlie Wilson has been issuing as a solo performer. It has a strong message and Stokes absolutely nails it vocally. Soultracks.com (June 2016)
Andy Stokes is infinitely better than all the other modern day soul singers out there. Peter Dammann – Portland Waterfront Blues Festival (2015)
Andy Stokes sings with an earthy intensity that matches the magnetism of his extroverted showmanship on stage.” Marty Hugley - The Oregonian
Andy Stokes was like a Pied Piper of funk, when the people heard that music they just followed the tunes, they came from down the waterfront, across the street and packed the courtyard. Tony Democoli – Rose Festival Coordinator
