Indie / Folk Rock - Toronto, CA

 After living in Havana for a year, Andrew Whiteman returned to Toronto and set up a residency at Ted’s Wrecking Yard, where he played Brazilian and Cuban songs with band-mates Julian Brown and Dean Stone. The group, known as Apostle of Hustle, teamed up with producer David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene) in 2004 and released their debut album, Folkloric Feel. Their follow-up album, National Anthem of Nowhere, will be released by Arts &Crafts on March 6, 2007. The album was produced by Martin Kinack and Andrew Whiteman at Masterkut in Montreal, The Party in Toronto, and Andrew’s bedroom. Joined by band members Julian Brown and Dean Stone, Apostle of Hustle will begin touring in early 2007.
You may quickly recognize the breathy vocals and supple guitar style on National Anthem of Nowhere. Andrew Whiteman, the frontman of Apostle of Hustle, is also the lead guitarist of Broken Social Scene. However, Whiteman will quickly clear up any confusion you have concerning his two bands by listing the following differences between Apostle of Hustle and BrokenSocial Scene:

more nylon, less steel
more faunfare, less fanfare
more pulp, less confession
more swung, less straight
less eighties, more fifties
less wedding, more gondola
less bandroom, more bedroom
