Best Local Musician — Best of Vail Valley 2019

It’s sometimes said that you could see local live music every day here, and one of those local favorites is Andy Cyphert. As a full-time musician who’s lived in the Vail Valley for five years, Cyphert’s main goal is to make his fans happy. “I’m blown away by how much my music has had an impact on other people. Music has obviously had a huge effect on my life, and now to be able to share that gift and add to everyone’s experience in Vail is nothing short of meaningful,” he said. His wide catalog covers classic rock favorites like The Beatles and Eric Clapton, and he also does originals inspired by modern staples such as John Mayer, Coldplay and Jack Johnson. At Cyphert’s shows, which he advertises weekly on his Facebook page, he sometimes collaborates with local and visiting musicians, takes audience requests and learns songs if multiple people ask for the same tune. Check out Cyphert’s contribution to Vail’s local music scene at the Remedy Bar, Grand Hyatt Vail and Southside Benderz.
