Videos by American Songwriter

ARTIST: Andrew Kelley Simons

SONG: “In Front of You”


 Boston, MA

AMBITIONS: To somehow sneak onto one of Richard Branson’s spaceships without paying.

TURN-ONS: Rich, powerful men.


 Gum chewing/popping/stepping in, texting while driving, and improper use of similes.

MY GUILTY PLEASURE: Troubling amounts of true crime television.

THE BOOK THAT CHANGED MY LIFE: Incognito Mosquito: Private Insective

YOU KNOW YOU’RE IN LOVE WHEN: Life is physically painful apart from the other.

MY 5 FAVORITE ACTORS: Tom Cruise, Peter Dinklage, George Clooney, Eric Stonestreet, Gene Hackman

DREAM HOME: Small remote cabin deep in the forest that somehow has WiFi and a teleporter to the nearest shopping mall food court.

I WROTE THIS SONG: with Cord Phillips to help out the Nashville-based charity Soles4Souls, and we thought the best way to do so was to get involved creatively. Rather than simply writing an advertisement for them, we wanted to convey the feeling that any amount of giving is significant. Every download of the song is donated to S4S and provides one pair of shoes to someone in need.
