Andrew O'Day Music 



An open hand reaching into your soul and holding your heart may best describe the way Andrew has spliced broken words of emotion.  The lyrical content of his original writings could easily be listened to through a mono-tone metal box, hanging off the side of the driver’s door window.  Although he has spent many years as a young musician, collaborating and teaming with others that are equally motivated to find themselves in their spiritual quest for the perfect sound of a strumming heartbeat, the time has come.  He is ready to share his acoustic guitar and sage, soulful sound....​

The Hazards Bluegrass


Call it fate, luck, or provenance, but these five men come together in a way that channels the unmatched drive and spirit of the Great Early Bluegrass Pioneers... Sometimes fearsome, sometimes lonesome, sometimes joyous, but always touching your heart.  Hazards began as a duo featuring Matt Geiger on guitar and Eric Knowles on banjo, playing and singing the music they loved: traditional bluegrass and mountain music from the Appalachians.  Matt and Eric’s fiery vocals and picking have a compelling sound and feel that one rarely encounters these days, their vocals and instrumental work woven together like the those of the early classic brother duets.  Performing regularly as a duo at a small brewery in Brunswick, Maryland, Eric and Matt began to attract not only an enthusiastic following of fans, but also other like-minded and very talented musicians: Gregg Bowers came in on mandolin and vocals, followed shortly by Dave Repass on bass, and lastly, Mark Baker on dobro and vocals. Some of it was fate, but each new member possessed the same rare rhythmic “feel” and drive. Together, the group somehow seems to channel the same “magical” quality of the great early bluegrass bands... certainly a force to be reckoned with!
