The second Blenders Special Concert will feature the talented Andy Kim on Friday, Oct. 23 at the Lyric Theatre. 

The Canadian rock indie pop singer-songwriter has nine No. 1 Billboard hits, and will bring no shortage of entertainment to Swift Current.
Born in Montreal, Kim was inspired by the Beatles, Hank Williams, Frank Sinatra, Elvis and Bob Dylan. 
He found fame in New York City at just 16 years old when he wrote, How’d We Ever Get This Way? which was the first of his many Billboard Top 40 hits. 
His songs, Rock Me Gently and Sugar, Sugar (sung by the Archies), awarded him with the Billboards “Greatest Songs of All Time.”
A true Canadian artist, Kim has been awarded the country’s top industry honour twice, the Juno Award for Outstanding Achievements in the record industry, as well as the “Indie Award” for Favourite Solo Artist in 2005.
 During his exceptional career he has sold more than 30 million records, with songs covered by music history’s greats, including Wilson Pickett, Tom Jones, Ike and Tina Turner, and Bob Marley. 
More recently he has performed and co-wrote songs with Ed Robertson of The Barenaked Ladies.  His latest album is a collaboration with Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene.
Kim’s newer music possesses the timeless, transcendent and transforming qualities of his songs before, while giving audiences a personal look into the artist’s take on love and change. His latest album expresses his faith in love, life and the importance of personal strength to endure change.
This phenomenal performance is one you will not want to miss. Tickets for this Special Concert, on Friday, Oct. 23 at the Lyric Theatre will be $40 and can be purchased at Pharmasave. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the music begins at 8:30 p.m.
