Andrew Sloman “epitomizes the talent, craft and sublime skill of the great British singer songwriter – understated but remarkably versatile both in terms of vocal lines and the melodies of the music” (Rick Lippit, Live and Loud)
He has supported the legendary Sting, The Automatic and The Zutons and his music has regularly featured on shows like Tom Robinson and Steve Lemacq on BBC Radio 1, 2 and 6 in the UK and The Guy Perryman and Peter Barakan Show on Inter FM in Japan.
Andrew plays all of the instruments on his first 2 records, Tides and Deadwood, except for the string arrangements written together with Adrian Hopkins and The Mizenus Quartet; a group of extraordinary women from the Royal Philharmonic, BBC Welsh, and Glasgow Symphony Orchestras.
