Andy Stokes: The rest of the world has discovered what we knew all along in Portland. Coffeeshop Conversations@ Catfish Lou's #187

By TOM D'ANTONI // It took a long time, but Andy Stokes is now a hitmaker. He's grateful to his fans in Portland.

it’s great when there’s a musician who struggles throughout his career, you know he’s immensely talented and you try to expose his music to a broader audience and then one day, boom. He makes it.

Andy Stokes is all that. OMN called him Oregon’s King of Soul years ago. Last year, his song “Best Day Ever” was a hit. He has a new album and we’ll hear something from it.

He has sung right here at Catfish Lou’s at 2460 NW 24th St. many times. And he’s back today to talk about success.

One note. Something happened to the start of the conversation, and we’re picking it up about a minute in. You didn’t really miss anything.

Welcome back to Portland, Andy Stokes.
