For the past decade, Andrew Bayer has been a pivotal artist on Anjunabeats, influencing the trance genre and shaping the label’s direction.
In 2010, while studying at Berklee College of Music, Andrew joined Above & Beyond in London, collaborating closely with them. He spent 7 transformative years in the city, building his solo career and dealing with personal challenges, including his brother’s illness and coming out to his family. Stranded in London due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland, Andrew experienced isolation and grief, but eventually found love and support when he came out to his family and met his now husband, Allan.
This newfound love and acceptance profoundly impacted Andrew’s music, transitioning from negative emotions to celebrating love and joy. Andrew’s own album “In My Last Life” became a testament to collaboration and self-expression, celebrating friendships, the queer community, and the love he had found. With his latest double album “Duality,” Andrew aimed to present his authentic self, merging alternative, pop, and club dance music while amplifying LGBTQ voices. The songwriting collaborations, like the one with Alison May and Asbjorn, created an intimate and trusting process, allowing Andrew to embrace himself and shine a spotlight on the unsung heroes of dance music—the songwriters. Andrew Bayer remains committed to authenticity, love, and openness in his life, continuing to collaborate with like-minded artists.
“I used to separate myself from my artist career, but as my career has progressed, I’ve tried to present myself more authentically and really encapsulate what it means to be myself in my music. ‘Duality’ and its fabulous cast of collaborators allowed me to share my journey with you. Thanks for the wild ride
‘No Silence is a short film about self-discovery, and my journey to date. A huge thank you to our partner Amazon Music, and Anjunabeats for their support – and of course, thank you to all of you, Anjunafamily!’
– Andrew Bayer
