Andrew Saks (ASAKS) is an ambient guitar player and the founding member of the Ventura, California dreampop band Sway. Originally a four-piece group, Andrew took on Sway as a solo project in 2010 playing various shows in California with additional personnel on percussion and guitars.
Recently Andrew has decided to retire Sway and to continue making ambient and experimental guitar music under the name ASAKS, concentrating on solo works, as well as collaboration with other experimental, ambient, jazz, and shoegaze artists. Andrew is currently working on an experimental collaboration with drummer Tony Cicero (former Saccharine Trust, SST Records). He continues to perform ambient guitar sets at venues and random street locations throughout California and hopes to do a busking/coffeehouse tour of the U.S. soon.
