Electric Bonsai Band is neither electric nor a's actually singer/songwriter Andrew Ratshin, and his acoustic guitar. Best known as a member of, and principal songwriter for, the group Uncle Bonsai, Andrew has released five solo albums of original material and been included on a number of compilation projects.

With the release of his debut recording, I Am Joe's Eyes, Andrew began headlining at clubs and festivals across North America; with the release of a live cassette, 20 Seconds Of Pleasure (a collection of 20-second and 40-second songs) and the critically acclaimed, But I'm Happy Now, Andrew established himself as "one of the premier songwriters of his generation" (The Maverick Report). The release of Lounging In The Belly Of The Beast had Sing Out magazine proclaiming Andrew "an absolute original" and say that "there's more than enough brilliance here to entice and seduce open minded listeners who appreciate exceptionally well written songs."

Andrew continues to perform solo and with Uncle Bonsai; the group recently performed Andrew's 25-song song cycle, "Seven Sins, Seven Wonders, Seven Dwarfs," and both Andrew and Uncle Bonsai have begun recording new releases.
