A singer/songwriter/composer, and a well travelled soul.
Andrew released his debut album Well Tread Roads on Monday 5th May 2014. It is a project that explores the highs and lows of creating music with the demands of a full time job, giving up evenings and weekends and being dedicated to the task. The album was written and arranged in Andrew’s bedroom. It was taken on, mixed and post produced by Jordan Critz, in Dallas, USA.
Andrew was born in Melbourne in Australia. His love for music began age 5, placed at a piano and brought into the world of traditional folk music. He wrote his first song at 12, taught himself the drums and guitar when he was 13. Songwriting always came easy. He developed a love of 197O’s Laurel Canyon artists – James Taylor, Jackson Browne, the eagles and later a fascination with Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen.
Well Tread Roads explores depression [This Black Dog] a longing for family [Home City] and a desire to carve out his own path through the title song Well Tread Roads. It is a rollercoaster of driving pop/folk and acoustic songs, each with its own identity.
As a songwriter and composer, Andrew has been commissioned by some of the major production music libraries [ EMI, Imagem, Cavendish] to write music for advertising, film and television. He has acted as producer/songwriter as well as worked with a variety of artists and session musicians, working to brief and producing bespoke songwriting albums. His music has been used for major brand advertising campaigns, films and on major terrestrial channel across the UK, Europe and Russia.
Andrew has performed a Glastonbury Festival between 2008-2016 and has toured with Peter Green [Fleetwood Mac] and performed across France, Spain and the Netherlands.
