BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS WITH ANDY NORTON
Get graphic with artist and designer Andy Norton.
Born and raised in Columbia, Maryland Andy spent the first 15 years of his life on a steady diet of horror movies, rock 'n' roll, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the next 5 Idolizing Geoff Rowley and skating at the Lakefront on little Patuxent Parkway , and the next 16 listening to 7 seconds and eating vegan food. In between all of this he has never stopped creating album covers, fliers, fanzines, and all other type of print media for his friends, prioritizing his pals in the DMV. Playing music since middle school, at the age of 16 his future fell into place when local friends provided a ride to the phantasmagoria to see Next Step Up play. Conversations along the way centered around Gorilla Biscuits, Battery, and Insted with like minds expressing "Yeah, Youth Crew, that's what we like too." At 36 years old, Andy currently resides in Silver Spring just a few clicks up the road from his hometown, swapping Howard for Montgomery County while everything else has stayed the same. Still vegan, still in a band, still positive, still ready and willing. The straight edge went to the circus.
