Wednesday 1st August
EastSide Visitor Centre

John Andrews (feat. Adam Gamble & Special Guests) support by Three Chords Max

Gritty, honest and not shying away from his inner self, step into the world of singer-songwriter John Andrews with his colourful characters and lessons learned. As a child growing up in a religious background in east Belfast, John attended one of Ian Paisley’s churches from an early age, where his mother still plays the organ.

His roots shine through his songwriting which couldn’t have come from anywhere but Northern Ireland. Cutting his teeth on the Belfast scene, John has become a firm favourite showcasing events regularly throughout the city, last year playing at Sunflower Fest, Feile and EastSide Arts Festival.

He’s taken some time out from his solo EP in 2014 which was co-produced by Rev D Wayne (Alabama 3) and now he’s back with ‘Johnny Was’ EP, where he is once again, very much wearing his heart on his sleeve.

''Shuffled and swayed in a classic folksy alt-country undertone, John Andrews delivers a future classic with acoustic reverence and lovely tempos that truly make this a traveling EP, designed to be that personal companion on a long journey down a scenic highway with his new release, ‘Johnny Was’. Layered with twists and spotted with turns, this is more than an average songwriter’s collection of their best material, this is an artist with a varied palette.''
