Piano player, composer and songwriter Andy Fleet pours rock, jazz, blues and classical influences into the melting pot creating his own eclectic rich dark blend.
His debut album The Night Falls Fast (2009) was a collection of ten beautifully crafted songs that told tales of friendship, loss, nocturnal infatuation and recounted long nights playing lounge piano. At it's heart, the album featured the deeply affecting 'Fifty Four Candles'.
Takin' Aim (2013) was released in 2013 and featured Amercian trumpeter Andre Canniere. It was a big dark luscious sounding record from the horns laden New Orleans vibe of the opening track to the frighteningly honest and personal finale where Andy bares his soul and tells the tragic tale of the night his baby son died in 'Brave Little Soldier'.
The Sleepless Kind (2020) is the long overdue follow up set for release on January 31st 2020 and features beautiful original art work by Alban Low. The album is evocative of the night and is bookended by the title theme over two parts and again features Andre Canniere on trumpet. At its centre is 'Through Closed Eyes' which tells the story of a nightowl in the city and is the inspiration behind the album cover.
Andy has toured extensively over the years both with his own quartet and as sideman including a stint with Universal Music. He also has appeared several times on BBC and ITV television.
