BIOGRAPHY

Hey!...Thanks for stopping by and checking out my website! It's much appreciated. This is the cringey section where I have to give you some information about myself. It's not very interesting but here goes......

I live in the fab city of Galway in the wesht (that's not a typo btw) of Ireland. Whilst I was dragged over from my native England by my (much) better half, I've come to love the place, there's so much to see and do. If you check out the my Gallery page I've included some photos of some nearby spots. If you've never been, it should be on your 'To Do' list for sure!

As far as music goes, I've been playing instruments from an early age and just loved making noise. I started with the classical guitar and then took on the mighty cello but my teacher scared the sh*te out of me so I moved on from that pronto which I now regret. But she really was scary!

When I was really small I used to set up some tupperware tubs and baking dishes on the floor. This was my first drum kit and I've loved the drums ever since. Having played  the drums in many bands it wasn't until I was a good bit older that I decided to dabble with songwriting and singing and coming out from behind the kit.

Since then I've been writing and recording music in various bedrooms of various houses over the years with no real plan or intention of releasing anything but in May of 2021, my son and best bud Jack passed away after a valiant battle against a cancer nearly as rare as he was. Jack gave me a lot of grief about doing nothing with my songs, so it was really because of him that I released some of them. I guess it's given me something to focus on during a really tough time.

If I had to describe my sound or style or whatever you want to call it, I'd say I combine electronic and acoustic instruments to create a melodic wall of sound. I am a complete sucker for layer upon layer of aural goodness and drawing from influences across many genres including rock, pop, ambient, electronic and more, I love big choruses and outros. Just make sure you turn the volume up when listening!

Thanks again for visiting

Yours in music

Andre
