Bio

Andy Jans-Brown & COZ*MIC are an indie rock band from the iconic Australian beach town of Byron Bay. They have just returned from The USA where they performed as part of the Indie Entertainment Summit in North Hollywood and have just played this years Caloundra Music Festival in Qld, Australia.
Andy’s music has been described as being uplifting, and in the vein of those classic bands and songwriters from the past who wrote songs you remember the words and want to sing along to. Geoff Helisma from The Clarence Valley Review has said of their second double album, "Just listened to the new double album 'Sunshine Avenue' - amazing, you'll be singing along to the title track before its three minutes and 35 seconds have expired. If justice prevails, Jans-Brown should become more familiar with the world's music consumers.4.5 out of 5 for me."

Dave Graney of 3RRR Melbourne has referred to the album as "Sophisticated Rock". 

In the April edition of Mint Magazine Andy Jans-Brown's work is described as "Compassionate, sensitive, and soulful lyrics imbued with life’s experiences, Jans-Brown is certainly forging an exceptional musical path with superstar stamped all over it, laced with soul and deep insights of life, his words shoot at the heart and touch a chord within."

Their song ‘Dressed in a woman’s clothes’ made it to number one of the triple j unearthed indie chart, it was also nominated for a Music Oz award (2013) and the filmclip stars 7 time TV Logie award winner Paula Duncan.

Geoff Helisma from The Clarence Valley Review says of Andy Jans-Brown & COZMIC’s debut double album ‘Letting Go!’ , "it's disk 1 that connects most with me; it travels many musical roads (rock, balladry, pop, love, dispossession, human frailty) and wears Jans-Brown’s heart on its sleeve and I'm not alone in my appreciation of Jans-Brown's work".
D L Lewis in the February edition of Music Forum Magazine compares the CD to the great double albums such as Exile on Main Street by the Rolling Stones, Blonde on Blonde by Bob Dylan and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John. He states, "Letting Go is a very enjoyable and, yes, interesting collection of songs. For me, the standout song was Star on the first disc, which I put on repeat, and caught myself humming after I’d listened to the album. I’d imagine that seeing Jans and Coz*Mic live would be a worthwhile experience, if they can match the skill that is displayed on this record on a stage."
Terri Lee Fatouros of Pearl Magazine adds to D L Lewis’ words “Comparing Jans- Brown to The Stones, Elton John and Bob Dylan may seem sensational, but after seeing the artist play live, I have to agree.”
Paul Cashmere at Noise 11 Magazine Melbourne has said of the album “Letting Go is a totally organic record. There is none of that The Voice hype. This is the real deal. Rarely does an album ever drop on my desk from a complete unknown and knock me out. You must hear it." - Paul Cashmere, Noise 11
Jans-Brown has also toured Australia and abroad. He has opened the show for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, fronting his then Sydney band 'iris'. He has had his songs played on national radio triple j, and been interviewed by Rosie Beaton. His film clip, 'You got me thinking' was broadcast on RAGE in 2002.
In Paris he performed at the FNAC store's Australia music week promotion on the same bill as Tina Arena in 2002. He has also licensed a number of his compositions to film and TV including 'Despite Everything' for the Showtime FOXTEL glam TV series, 'Satisfaction '. Other notable supports include Portugal The Man and Stonefield.
