For many years I have felt drawn to Herman Hesse’s telling of the story of “Siddhartha”. I always knew it would be the inspiration for something I would create. Initially – when I was 16 – I thought it would be an opera, or theatrical work of some sort, and who knows, perhaps eventually it will be. But today, some 20 odd years later, I’m releasing the first recording in a series inspired by this great story. Today my “Siddhartha” is available for download from most digital retailers and for streaming from most subscription services.

You can order physical copies – which showcase the phenomenal artwork of Steven Bradshaw – in two ways:
1 – By sending a $20 check made out to Andrew Lipke to:
Lipke CD
P.O. Box 15244
Philadelphia, PA
(please include the address to which you would like the CD mailed)
2 – By sending $20 via paypal to
(again, please include the address to which you would like the CD mailed)
Unfortunately we can only honor continental US orders at this time.
All CD’s will be mailed within two weeks and will be autographed – unless you don’t want them autographed in which case I will write something offensive on them.

Starting today, and continuing for the next seven days, I will be adding one track from the album to my SoundCloud page for folks who don’t like to buy music or pay a subscription service…or enjoy suspense! Then I will leave the record up for a week. Then I will try and forget all about it so I can start working on other things.

I am overwhelmed with gratitude and love for all those who helped make – and continue to help make – this dream, a reality…and then a dream again.
