News: ANDREW ROACHFORD – UK tour continues until 7 December

27 October 2017 News


Following another hugely successful tour with Mike + The Mechanics, Andrew Roachford hits the road again with his own band, October – December .

Andrew’s current album is ‘Encore’ which features his unique interpretations of some classic tracks.  His eclecticism has been evident from the early days of his musical career when he worked in the studio with The Clash as a teenager and then developed a rock/soul vibe for a series of successful solo albums in the late-1980s to the late 1990s.  He was Columbia’s biggest selling domestic act for a decade and the first to sign a staggering seven-album deal with the label.

He says “I’ve never categorized music, I listen to music that moves me…. and that’s what inspires my writing”.  For the past four years he has been an integral part of Mike + The Mechanics,  writing and singing for a band that has itself experienced wide success since the late-1980s.

The Encore album includes versions of Sly Stone’s ‘Family Affair’,  Bill Withers’ ‘Grandma’s Hands’ and Simply Red’s ‘Holding Back The Years’.  Andrew continues:  “This album showcases some of the songs that have fired me up over the years to become a performer.  I once read that a sign of a good singer wasn’t just about ability but more importantly about someone that when they sang you believe every word “.
