Andrew Amirzadeh: Dead Tenant - You Live to Live Without

Dead Tenant - You Live to Live Without

JULY 2013, Columbus, OH: The digital release of You Live to Live Without, the newest album from Columbus guitarist, Dead Tenant, is streaming online courtesy of bandcamp.

Released in late July, Dead Tenant (real name Andrew Amirzadeh age 26) plays four popular works for the classical guitar on the electric guitar. “I've always loved Barrios and Roland Dyens,” guitarist Andrew Amirzadeh said. “That music always resonated with me more than Jazz, Rock or Blues.”

ABOUT THE BAND: Dead Tenant (Andrew Amirzadeh) is a blend of classical music virtuosity and sophistication. One track, amp and guitar is all that is used for Amirzadeh to perform these highly technical and harmonically rich pieces. Contributing most of his classical knowledge to books gotten from the library and internet, Amirzadeh has studied under award winning bass player Dave LaRue and taken master classes with Bela Fleck, Chick Corea, and Victor Wooten.

You Live to Live Without is available on bandcamp, and review copies are available by contacting Andrew on, or by listening to the live stream at
