"ATM is a transcendent experience."

"Answer the Muse will leave you spiritually transformed and musically uplifted."

- Andrea

A multi-faceted soul affirming musical experience; more than a band, Answer the Muse moves and transforms you. Take the journey!  We are proudly "out of the box". Our musical journeys integrate original music, covers, theatre, meditation, and movement that uplift. No matter what your venue, we can custom design a musical experience.

Answer the Muse is a highly infectious positive musical journey that weaves together relevant original rock/pop music, theatrical moments, and audience participation with every show. Our signature sound includes tight vocal harmonies, exotic instrumentation: piano, synthesizers, Uilleann bagpipes, flutes, acoustic and electric guitars along with expansive arrangements create a beautiful soundscape. Audiences feel moved, inspired, and "crazy happy"!
