Andrew Vogt is an accomplished musician and composer from Chicago who, in addition to writing, producing and performing his own original music, collaborates and performs regularly with singers and songwriters from all genres of music. He has written and arranged over 200 pieces of music and has recorded over 300 songs (60 albums) as a performer.
Awarded the Luminarts' 2020 "People's Choice" award for Solo Jazz performance at Buddy Guy's Legends in Chicago, he has also been found recently collaborating in the writing and arranging of music for the ATLYS string quartet. Since 2018, Vogt and ATLYS have released numerous singles including wildly successful covers of “A Day in the Life” and “Imagine.”
Through this partnership, he also had the opportunity to arrange the music of hit-machine songwriter Tom Kelly (Cyndi Lauper, Phil Collins, Madonna, The Pretenders, The Bangles) for a performance with Kelly in Lafayette, Indiana.
In winter of 2020, Vogt’s commercial music company 3MIX had featured placements on the full-length Hallmark Christmas movie “The Christmas Doctor.” The same year he also released the original music EPs “Hammerspace” and “Like a River,” the predecessors of the full length album “Awakening.”
In summer of 2021, Vogt worked again with ATLYS and electronic artist Seven Lions to arrange hybrid string quartet covers for sold out performances at Red Rocks and The Gorge, which resulted in a highly successful EDM/classical crossover full length album available now on Ophelia Records.
On the performing side of music, Vogt has played with many world renowned jazz artists including Ernie Watts (Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, Pat Metheny), Donny McCaslin (David Bowie), Nate Watts (Stevie Wonder), Isaiah Sharkey (John Mayer, D’Angelo) and Woody Goss (Vulfpeck). He is featured on over 24 hours worth of music (over 35 albums) on Spotify from different collaborations and side projects.
Vogt's first record dates back to 2014, when he released his first album as producer and primary composer under the group "The Humble Organisms", followed in 2016 by his debut EP as a bandleader, "For Free", and again by the album "The AV Club", released the following year. In 2021, he released “Oihana” with musical partners B Forrest and Patrik Ahlberg which quickly ran up the bluegrass charts.
Through mutual friend and musical companion B Forrest, Andrew was introduced to Woody Goss (of Vulfpeck) and since they have worked together on all of Woody’s solo projects, including "Strange Satisfaction” by Woody & Jeremy (2020), "Anyway" by May Erlewine and the Woody Goss Band (2020), “Gravy in My Coffee” by Woody & Jeremy (2021) and “Rainbow Beach” (2021) and “High Loon!” (2023) by Woody Goss.
Today, Vogt is preparing to launch a new album titled "Awakening", which is slated for a full release this year.
Andrew graduated from University of Illinois Chicago with a Bachelor’s in Music Performance (Magna Cum Laude) in 2011 and also holds a Professional Graduate Certificate in Advanced Music Production from Berklee College of Music.
