Kyle Andrews is an American songwriter and performer born in Chicago, IL and based in Nashville, TN.[1] He has released albums on Portland's Badman Recording Co. as well as his own Elephant Lady Records imprint.[2] His 2010 song "You Always Make Me Smile" (co-written with friend Neil Mason) was featured in a worldwide Holiday Inn ad.[3] The music video for the song was filmed in Utah[citation needed] during an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest water balloon fight[4] and went viral.[5][6] His interactive video for "Sushi" (directed by Dennis Liu) was made from 1.4 million tiles, and thousands of unique YouTube video stills.[citation needed] In 2010 it was shortlisted for the Guggenheim's YouTube Play Exhibit.[7][not in citation given]

In addition to the Holiday Inn campaign, his music has been used in other TV shows and commercials, including a worldwide television ad for Dell ("We Were Colors")[8] and a national television ad for Doritos ("Bombs Away").[9][unreliable source?] "You Always Make Me Smile" also appeared in an episode of ABC's Grey's Anatomy.[10][original research?][not in citation given]

Although Kyle performs as a first-name/last-name artist, and self-recorded the majority of his discography, he plays live with a full band.

Kyle Andrews' new album, Robot Learn Love, was released August 16, 2011.[11]
