Andrew DansbyEntertainment Writer, Houston Chronicle

Andrew Dansby covers music and other entertainment, both local and national, for the Houston Chronicle, 29-95.com and chron.com. He previously assisted the editor for George R.R. Martin, author of "Game of Thrones" and later worked on three "major" motion pictures you've never seen. That short spell in the film business nudged him into writing, first as a freelancer and later with Rolling Stone. He came to the Chronicle in 2004 as an entertainment editor and has since moved to writing full time.

Andrew dislikes monkeys, dolphins and the outdoors. He has no pets.

Lauryn Hill  After owning the 1990s as a member of The Fugees and her blockbuster solo album  The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill , singer Hill disappeared from the public eye even as the music world eagerly awaited her follow-up. But while the world waited, Hill was going through a self-imposed exile of sorts, reacting to the personal pressures and fears generated by the huge success of  Miseducation  (similar, though shorter, to the self-imposed exile that comedian Dave Chappelle went through). Over the last few years, Hill has made sporadic appearances and even performed new songs, but there's still no proper follow-up album. She also served a three-month prison term in 2013 in connection to tax evasion charges.
