You’ve Got A Friend In Me

First Impressions

Just like the ride at Disneyland, “It’s a small world after all,” I remember when I first arrived at Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio.

My friend Caleb Henry (now our 2017 Program Artist) was auditioning and he needed a ride. When we walked up the stairs I was greeted¬†with a familiar face, a friend of mine, Andrew Washington. Immediately my head started to sing “It’s a small world after all.”

Back in the Day…

Andrew Washington and I go way back, well not really, but you get the idea. Andrew and I both spend extensive time in the music department at Azusa Pacific University, especially since he is a music major. I first met him in Commercial Styles, Azusa Pacific University’s Pop/Rock band. It was both our first time, so, to say the least, we were nervous.

I remember each singer was picking out songs and singing them. And then Andrew came and picked his song and my jaw just dropped. Andrew has such a talent for singing and music in general. We spent two semesters in Commercial Styles and it was a blast playing drums for Andrew. After that, I’d work with him from time to time as a music assistant but that was about it.

More than just a voice 

Andrew was the one I first contacted to say I was interested in an internship at Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio, and he’s the one that gave me the good news that I got the position.

Working with Andrew has been such a pleasure and it has been a great opportunity to get to know him even better. We are friends at college, but we’re those types of friends where we know enough to say hi and chat for a bit and then leave.

Now, I feel like I can truly call Andrew my friend. Working with him has been an honor, and I can’t wait for the upcoming adventures we will be on together.
