Andrew Burke is interested in exploring music’s ability to address and elucidate complex issues, providing spaces and experiences for the listener to reflect. After working in political communications for four years, he returned to music and recently completed his master's degree at the Peabody Institute, where he studied with Christopher Cerrone and Kevin Puts. 


In 2020, he won second place in Peabody’s Prix d’Été competition and was named a finalist for the Kaleidoscope Orchestra's Call for Scores. In 2021, he was selected as a Merriweather District Artist in Residence and completed his first feature-length film score for Brutal Season (MYNA, prod.). 


He creates pop music under the moniker Danke Shane, most recently releasing his second EP Future Real Ones with Tape Dad Records. He graduated from Haverford College in 2014 and will begin his doctoral studies at the University of Pennsylvania in the fall of 2022.
