Andrew Horowitz

edu, pronounced ee-doo, is the first solo/side project of Andrew Horowitz since Tally Hall's success took off.

Andrew explains the name of his solo project in his bio on Spotify:

"my family calls me edu (ee-doo). from my understanding, edu is how i pronounced andrew as an infant. my music, like my nickname, is intimate. and so, gather close and welcome."


edu was first introduced to by the public on the 17th of October, 2011, through his facebook page[1]

His first set of demos was initially released on cassette tape so as to not have it be circulated in a disposable format; the first batch was mailed out in March 2012. On December 17th 2012, Andrew decided to make the whole album available digitally through his Bandcamp page, however, as of 2019, the original version of Sketches is 'Sold Out' and no longer available for purchase.[2]

Not much came about after the release of sketches, other than a single interview edu did, confirming that a second album was (kind of) a work in progress. He referred to the (currently untitled) album as much more "baroque" than sketches. No further information has surfaced since except for a single track that came from a confusing origin: a random russian music website.[Citation Needed]

In 2019, edu announced a re-release for his debut album, on both vinyl and streaming services. The project was funded by Kickstarter, similarly to how Joe Hawley Joe Hawley was financed. The album has been changed slightly, with what edu describes as a removal of "some of the junk that was clogging it up," and saying that "a lot of sonic problems were addressed".[3] This increase in quality is presumably a result of Andrew's music producing career in between the two releases.
