Andrew Kwon

About

Andrew Kwon began making music early on in his life and joined a Korean pop group at the age of 17. For three years he sang as the lead vocalist for the group SPR and toured all over Korea. In 2000, Andrew moved back to the United States and at a men’s church retreat he had a personal encounter with Jesus. He decided to dedicate his life and the gifts God had given him to make music for Him and to touch other peoples’ lives. Soon after, through a mutual friend, Andrew had an opportunity to meet a producer named Youngjin Choi and they began a collaboration that lasted for years up until the present. Choi was based in Kansas City, KS at the time and Andrew would travel often to make music together. In 2004, they released their first album titled, "Armor of God.” Though the style varies throughout the album, it delivers the common message of hope and faith in Jesus Christ. Years later, Young Jin moved closer to Andrew to Los Angeles. It was there that Andrew recorded the 2nd album, “New Life” and released it in September of 2006. Simultaneously, while working on this album, Andrew studied church music at Portland Bible College and worked as a music director at his church for several years and continued to work with Young Jin on other Christian artists' albums. Currently, Andrew resides in Portland, Oregon with his wife of 18 years and three daughters, Selah, Julia, and Mina. Andrew’s desire is to make an impact through his music. His goal is to inspire, and bring hope and encouragement to the listeners.

James Banfield's Top 20 Songs
02/08/14 01:25:11AM @james-banfields-top-20-songs:

Andrew, you are welcome ... By the Way .... if you stop by My Page at http://indiegospel.org/profile/JamesBanfield797    there is a list of songs which are the current Top 20 for Feb. just below that is a text box which I use for comments on the organization, notes to the members and  a breakdown of the Top 20 songs and what I think about each song and where it sits in the mix. just below #20 are #21 and #22..  sometimes I forget to put the caption, "Honorable Mentions" but all the songs in the player after #20 are in fact Honorable Mentions. Your song is in there. OK now its my turn ... the intro using the high register of the Piano... is that the basic of the song that got you going on the song itself? Here is why I feel it was.... even when you are not doing it in the song, I hear it in my mind, even the lower harmony instead of high harmony is there in my mind and when you hit it, it sent chills up my spine! ... Now the lyrics, you have done something with the texture of the verse, the listener catches themselves hangin on every word. and in the second verse that low harmony comes in and it blows me away! Here is my question which I would like to put in the text box after your song description .... "Andrew, what gave you the idea of "Speaking (and Testifying) of Jesus?" WE gotta know ... Blessings to you my friend... wow... In Him, JB
