Feeling a bit camera shy


Born in Bristol, UK, Andy Evans played cornet throughout his childhood, having been born into a Salvation Army family. His interest in guitar began with his exposure to pop music on the radio, and he also began playing the piano at a young age.

Soon The Beatles became a passion, the start of a lifelong love of the art of songwriting; he also developed a love of the music of Hendrix, jazz, and a wide and eclectic range of other styles.

Throughout his teens, he played in bands covering pop, rock and jazz classics as well as original material, which he had by then begun to write. In the late 70s he toured extensively with Baton Rouge, appearing on the bill with bands such as Racing Cars, Gordon Giltrap, and The Stranglers.

Later, Andy studied harmony and composition privately before reading music at the University of York. He majored in compositional techniques and analysis and, in addition to more traditional styles, studied Indian music, Gamelan, African drumming, electronic music and music-theatre. He moved to London in 1984, and now lives in East Sussex with his wife and four children. He currently plays in a variety of bands and ensembles, including jazz duo KuDeTa.

Greatest writing influences are undoubtedly The Beatles, but the wide range of music he has experienced - and continues to play – can be clearly heard.
