FEATURING THE NEW HOLIDAY SONGS "Buddy, I''m Just Sick To Death Of Christmas" and "Season of Hope"!!

Sandy Andina and Stephen Lee Rich have been sitting in on one another''s sets for twenty years. In 1999 the decided to make it official and formed Andina and Rich. They''ve been promising to record ever since. That promise has now been kept.
"Because We Can" is a combination of original songs, parodies, studio, and live recordings that showcase what Sandy and Stephen Lee do best.

The Songs

A FINE ROMANCE - We open in a most un-folkie-like fashion with a treasured old showtune written by Dorothy Fields and Jerome Kern. You have to imagine, for a moment, that Sandy and I are Fred and Ginger (Fred Flintstones and Ginger Ale).

TIME HAS NO MERCY - Early in the 19th century the United States fought a war against Mexico.
Like all wars, it has its mythology (on either side of the Rio Grande). America''s move west is no less steeped in folklore. This song tries to cut through some of it.

BECAUSE WE CAN - The events described in this song actually happened to Sandy. This is for anyone who has been screwed by a bureaucracy. Even if you are part of a bureaucracy a bigger bureaucracy than your own has probably shafted you. This song is still for you.

SHIRA - Sometimes it is easier to see the big issues more clearly if you look at them thorough the eyes of one person. In that spirit Sandy examines the thoughts of an Isaerli border guard.

THE CONMAN - Amongst Sandy''s talents is a knack for creating sharp parodies. We regularly perform this backspin on Michael Smith''s "The Dutchman" in the ongoing hope that Michael will not have us drawn and quartered.

MUDBALL - It is impossible to experience life''s joys without having also known abject despair.

SAFE HOME - Despite the Political Right''s claims to the contrary, those of us who oppose the war in Iraq DO care about our soldiers in the line of fire. The one thing upon which we can all agree is that we want those kids to get home in one piece.

MY GRANDFATHER"S CLOCK - Parodies are like potato chips. We couldn''t do just one.

ORANGE AND PINK PRAIRIE SKY - When driving long distances by yourself you may, at some point, get so caught in the rhythm of travel as to acieve a sort of zen; a moment when you feel more free than you have ever felt before. It happened to Sandy whilst driving from the airport in Joplin, MO to a gig in Coffeyville, KS.

YOU CAN''T DO IT ALL ON YOUR OWN - Let''s face it. We need each other for a lot of things. Even this song is a group effort. It was written by Stephen Lee, Sandy, and Alan Moorhouse (alanabit). It''s already an international projrect. Join the fun. The more the merrier. We''re hoping that it can be used as an organizing song.
