Our son is a rising star/singer/songwriter named the VMA "Breakout Artist of the Year - Chicago 2009". He's in the Top 25 in "Billboard's Heat-seekers Chart", he got to the #1 singer/songwriter on iTunes, got to #23 on Top downloaded CDs on iTunes, has had 4 songs on Grey's Anatomy, and many others! Trust me, I could go on and on, HA!
SO many people ask me, "You must be SO proud of your son"?
and I tell them..."Yeah, I've been proud of him since the Doctor spanked him! NOW I'm just freakin amazed!"

I wanted to upload the reference photo for my upcoming drawing of my son "Andrew Belle". I'm thinking about uploading the reference pics with all my future drawings?
Andrew is a rising singer-songwriter, mainly in the USA but is known in dozens of countries too. 14 of his 16 songs have been on TV shows like Grey's Anatomy. If you like Indie music, you will LOVE his style, lyrics, rhythms and voice! He surely doesn't need me to promote him, but I can't help myself
His latest CD "The Ladder" was #1 on iTunes in 2010 three times for singer-songwriters, and is compared to Coldplay, The Fray and Greg Laswell.

This is our son ANDREW BELLE and the band he formed to tour with. Bottom left to right - Sam Gregg (guitar), Dustin (keys), Dan (Base), Graham (drums) and Andrew (guitar and vocals -upper left)
While he was showcasing at SxSW in Austin Texas last March, he was asked to cut loose and make this video, of he and his band goofing off and dressing in strange vintage clothes while singing his song REACH. Funny and Awesome! Watch that HERE: [link]
Also, while at SxSW they made a video of his hit song "THE LADDER" while in "THE JOHN LENNON BUS". He took 1st place with this song in their "John Lennon Song Writing Competition" for POP category. Watch that clip HERE: [link]
NOTE: I only upload these photos of my son so I can add them to my folder of him and the group I started for him. I wish these didn't have to get sent out to everyone. I know how it is to be constantly over-whelmed with new deviations. I wish I had time to comment on everyone's work!!
so my son's 2nd love is cooking. As if girls didn't have enough reasons to love him lol?!?
He owns some high-end cookware and just started a food blog at [link]
He says down the road of life, he would like to be a chef!
