Andrew Waite and The Firm

Andrew Waite is the frontman and songwriter for the gutsy roots-rock band Andrew Waite & the Firm from Charlottetown, PEI. Andrew’s songwriting is honest, rugged and evocative and when paired with the band is a collective of heavy hitters with rich harmonies and soundscapes.

Their debut EP, Burning Through the Night, was released in September 2015; and as a regional finalist in the 2015 CBC Searchlight competition, garnered the attention of CBC’s Grant Lawrence, who selected them as one of his standouts. “If The Band came from Charlottetown, they might sounds a lot like Andrew Waite & the Firm” stated Lawrence. “Someone To Hold Me” could easily have audiences on a national scale swaying back and forth to this chorus”. Their title track, “Burning Through the Night” (feat. Irish Mythen), was released in November of 2015 to much success including an 8-week stint on the East Coast Countdown including the number one spot.

Andrew Waite & the Firm have quickly developed and maintained a loyal and consistent following since their debut in December 2014 and have since shared the stage with The Skydiggers, Peter Katz, Irish Mythen, Slowcoaster, The Sadies, The Novaks, Coyote, and Liam Corcoran.
