Andy first took to the stage aged 12 in pubs and clubs, with his guitar, voice and harmonica, often jamming with local musicians including Rory Graham (aka Rag and Bone Man). Before hitting 18, he had gigged as a solo act in top London venues including The Jazz Café and 100 Club. Driven to create a distinctive and exciting act, Andy learnt to play foot operated drums, giving his songs a beat to get people on their feet. Drawing on influences as diverse as Muddy Waters, Monty Python and the White Stripes he developed a one man band show. In recent years Andy has brought this show to Spain, the Netherlands and France, has performed twice on BBC Radio and on London’s Resonance 104.4FM. In 2022 Andy performed at the opening of the British Blues Exhibition at the Barbican Library in London. He has become a sought after blues guitarist and this year joined Queen of the Blues Dana Gillespie's London Blues Band. He is also a prolific comedy music writer. On Christmas Eve 2015, Andy's Christmas music video, 'A Naked Noël', was broadcast on Channel 4. The Mirror newspaper published an article about Andy's Christmas single titled "Is this the best Christmas music video ever?". In 2017 Andy was interviewed on the London Live TV station to discuss his festival appearances and new live album release. Andy has performed at many of the biggest and best UK music festivals including Glastonbury, Beautiful Days, Standon Calling, and Green Gathering.
Andy’s one man band act is a unique blend of soulful blues music with raucous boogie, comedy, cabaret and rock and roll. The result is an exciting and entertaining show packed with heart and humour. Andy has found a place as one of the most original emerging acts on the circuit today. His distinct style has been heard and seen at Glastonbury Festival, on BBC Radio 2 and Channel 4.
