The band’s debut album “Drifting Days” welcomed rave reviews and became the number 1 played album on the IBBA Blues Broadcasters radio stations for the month of January 2020. The band performed later that month on the main stage at Skegness Great British Rock & Blues Festival alongside Dr Feelgood, Bernie Marsden, Savoy Brown, The Animals and more.

Andy is joined by a powerhouse rhythm section of childhood friends, Dylan Pepper (Slack Alice) on drums and Marcus Cordock (The Bay City Rollers) on bass. The trio boast an overwhelming musical chemistry which truly has be to be seen to be believed.
