Andy Germak
Andy Germak released his first full-length CD, Color Through the Smoke (Captain Ron), in January 2000. The album presents a thought provoking collection of meditations on an unpredictable world. Rolling Stone writes, "Tasteful strings and a first-rate melody set 'Fireworks Over Ithaca' apart from standard singer-songwriter fare." All Music Guide (AMG) comments, "a distinct form of 21st century protest music... Germak has definite breakout potential." And, Relix remarks, "a sense of maturity and depth that belies his age."

In April 2001, Germak showcased at House Of Blues (Cambridge MA) as part of the 2001 NEMO Music Conference. In February 2002, he appeared at The Bottom Line (New York NY) as part of the Smithsonian Folkways 20th Anniversary Fast Folk Concert.

In May 2002, Germak's song, "Spoonfed," was released on the benefit album, Vigil (Conscious), a CD compiled by Suzanne Vega with proceeds benefiting the families of victims of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center.

Germak opened for Suzanne Vega at The Library of Congress (Washington DC) on September 13, 2002, part of the "Summon the Heroes" 9/11 concert series. He also showcased at the Dewey Beach Music Festival (Dewey Beach DE) on September 27th and 28th, 2002.
