Sometimes I make Music

 

I've been lucky to make music with my friends all over the North East since first picking up a guitar as a clueless teenager. Writing and recording original music and performing  with people I care about is what makes me happiest; I'm thrilled to share my music with you. 

In 2017 I completed a project called Lunar Songs in which I wrote, recorded, and shared  one song per month to a group of supporters and collaborators along with stories about my songwriting process and inspirations. I released them as an album on March 21st, World Down's Syndrome Day, in honor of my brother and donated all proceeds, over $4,000, to the National Down's Syndrome Society.  I'll be forever grateful for the support I was shown. I hope to start a second Lunar Songs project in the not so distant future.

I currently perform all over the North East.
Come see me at a show or contact me (email: andysheamusic@gmail.com) for booking information!

Sometimes I Teach Things

I've taught English/Literature/Writing for nearly a decade in MA, DC, and CT.
For the past few years I've experimented with Gamification in the classroom,
which means I incorporate 'video game' principles into my daily lessons.
I've learned so much, and I hope to sh
are my findings, lessons, and strategies with you here soon.
