Dropjoy is an extremely LIVE band. According to CityBeat Magazine, Nicki sounds like Tracy Chapman channeling Hendrix. Born with congenial heart disease and heart transplant recipient in 2003, Andrew provides a jazz influence. Etienne de Bruin provides that melodic bottom end .On March 3rd, 2009 Andrew Light succumbed to heart transplant complications.The song "369" was written for him to explain his condition just before he passed. The sound of the band had taken a different turn before Andy passed. It is now more a marriage of Concrete Blonde and Kings of Leon. Posthumously Andrew has become our eternal guardian, vigilant within us is his battle cry: Never give up, Never give in. While we live with the loss, we live by his words.
