Andy Zipf is taking a new name: The Cowards Choir.
Zipf has always been committed to growth. He's taken that ethic to stages and street corners across the US, and has not gone unnoticed. Zipf's music continues to surface on network television and in independent films, and has participated in campaigns with ONE and To Write Love On Her Arms.
Turning to the people, he has consistently utilized his fan-base to support tours, fund albums, and share his story via direct social media connection.
Zipf rewards that loyalty with an unwavering commitment to creating music rooted in honesty. He gets on the floor at shows and sings from the back row. He turns the room into a cinema, coats every surface with colors and old film. Zipf doesn't believe in playing music, rather immersing the audience in it. He is constantly looking for ways to create an experience that taps into equal parts rock and roll and big tent revival.
After a successful PledgeMusic campaign in 2016, The Cowards Choir released NAME THE FEAR, an album with accompanying ‘visual score’ by Charlotte, NC filmmaker Will Davis of Small Creatures.
In 2017, The Cowards Choir began ‘The Singing Tree’, an ongoing live performance series. Joining Zipf in this project are friends and collaborators Ryan Walker, Dayana Yochim, Alissa Moore, Logan Lamons, Sara Curtin and Maureen Andary.
