“Andon’s new release, the R&B single, ‘Love Language’, is a fine example of his ability to effortlessly adopt new genres. He croons over a flowing roll of guitar and percussion, singing with the truest longings of his heart. His lyrics express his true desire to be seen and fully accepted in a relationship – not just admired for his talents, but for the whole package to be appreciated, faults and all.” - Lisa Hafey
