Shawn Andrews got rhythm

Posted By on Mon, Oct 25, 2010 at 6:20 AM

Nice feature in the New York Times today on Camden native Shawn Andrews, a New York Giants lineman, and his love of music. He was a tuba player and drummer in high school and plans a musical career after his playing days are over.

Andrews is not bashful about spreading his musical cheer. In the Giants’ locker room, his falsetto can be heard imitating the hip-hop artist Drake. On the way to the cafeteria, the 330-pound Andrews swaps lyrics for food references, his mind never far from his next meal. To put his own twist on a Cher hit, for example, Andrews cooed about getting a second helping, “Do you believe in grub after grub?”


Andrews is building a studio in his home in Little Rock, Ark. He will be able to manipulate the sound with one of three laptops — one for mixing the tracks, one for the rough drafts of his songs, one for the finished products.
