John Andrews has been plying his trade as a singer-songwriter for 3 years and is now firmly established as one of the finest talents on the Belfast scene. He has combined the harmonic complexity of jazz with the hard-won gutbucket authenticity of blues; and lined it with his own brand of streetwise lyricism to produce a highly rhythmic blend of music that is attracting new fans and followers every day.

He raps, he rasps; he croons and he howls, soaring from a raw bottom-end to a piercingly high tenor

Following the recent release of his stellar EP – Johnny Was (August 2018), John has emerged with the backing of a hard-rocking, bone-grinding three-piece band called ”The John Andrews Band or The JAB. Consistently producing new material they have breathed new life into the songs whilst sacrificing none of the nuance. Thrilling live, and boasting a 15 song set of original material inside a year, this is one act that is not to be missed.

Here is the Official Music Video of their debut single ”OMG” released 13th of March 2020 to give you a further feel for the band

John’s previous solo release ‘’Johnny was’’ gained radio-play on BBC Radio Ulster, Nova FM, Blast 106fm and many others globally, receiving many great reviews

XS Noize Review of Johnny Was EP    (8/10)

Chordblossom – Live review

‘‘Relentless and original, Andrews has a knack for excitement and incitement, switching between gears at a whim. A full performer with a presence, sound and pathos, the journeyman is a musician for all and was appreciated as such. Raising a hand in thanks to the applause, humbled and oddly(for him anyway) taciturn, Andrews blasted through his last song, a mix of Johnny Cash and Eminem. A microcosm for the singer-songwriter, a blend of city with and rustic bite, and the ideal end to the night.’’
