Biography

After sitting in a Chicago airport lounge, sharing a drink and musical advice with Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), Andrew Mullen knew that he had what it takes to be successful as a professional musician.

Mullen creates an eclectic fusion of Alternate Rock that incorporates raw acoustic undertones and driving beats. He is a songwriter, producer and a phenomenal guitarist.

"I aspire to use my versatility as a songwriter to inspire others, provoke thought, and connect with my audience. Music and writing are my passions - I play my instruments with the devotion they deserve and I create songs that cannot be ignored" says Mullen.

Mullen has matured from a talented guitarist in the small town of Yackandandah (Australia), to an internationally established and respected songwriter. He has been heard from warm lounges in London, to the VANS Warped tour rock festival in Australia, from impromptu performances in South East Asia and North America, to eccentric nightclubs in Poland.

Currently, Mullen is recording and producing his 3rd studio release album. The album is a collection of songs that define him as a musician. Mullen knows his songs will be heard on every radio station, TV show and Film across the world. “Hell, I would be honored if the ‘next big band’ approached me to write for them or use one of my songs!” Mullen adds.

Musically, Mullen draws his inspiration from leading songwriters such as Mark Knopfler, Jeff Martin, Bruce Cockburn and Maynard James Keehnan. As a songwriter, he works tirelessly to produce and promote the highest quality music.

"Now this is acoustic music with attitude, one of the most exciting, raw performers I have recorded" - Andy Sorenson, Producer, PopWorks

At 17 Mullen went on his first tour with Australia’s #1 Christian Singer and family friend, Steve Grace. His first solo performance supported the popular Australian performer, iOTA. His debut single “Sarcasm” established a cult following in the university circuit. He has had airtime on Australia’s national radio station (ABC), appeared in Sydney’s largest circulating music publication (The Drum Media) and was selected as a feature artist for the NOISE festival, 2003. Dubbed the “Hollywood Club”, his loyal fan base continues to demand Mullen’s music.

"Mullen’s songs are well constructed with the perfect lyrical and musical formula" – Stuart Stuart, Producer, Chartsong

So much talent, yet the best is still to come for Mullen. Keep your eyes and ears open. Mullen is gonna’ rock your socks off!

"Was your Dad on acid?" - Annie Gastin, Oz Music Spotlight presenter, ABC Radio

Lyrics

She

Written By: Mullen

< s h e >
She wants to be a widow
Cause she wants to be free
She wants to be in the movies
And live a life of misery, and I know cause I'm right there

How much is left in the bottle
Won't you save a bit for me
I'm alot like an empty bottle
You won't drain the life in me

She hates to be question
It's her life so let her be
She sits and smokes her cocain
With that she thinks she's free

How much is left in the bottle
Won't you save a bit for me
I'm alot like an empty bottle
You won't drain the life in me

Let's Go

Written By: Mullen

We've tried to be peaceful by showing them guns,
It's sad to be happy, impossible to run,
A person is so stubborn we all use it so well,
So let's get together and show them hell

I say let's go!

Blame it on TV and blame it on friend,
Society's own scapegoat is anything but them,
I say we fight this, I say don't bleed,
They're only gonna listen if we give them what they feed

I say let's go!

I'll sit in the middle, I don't know where to stand,
It would be so easy if you could lend a hand,
Stop your petty war games, stop your child rape
Give yourself a chance when you get into the gates,

Cause we've got a future, it wasn't made from drugs
Need to find an antidote from a world lead by thugs,
So get on your horses and fight till you burn,
Freedom's around the corner so why don't you turn?

I say let's go!

Not Going There

Written By: Mullen


I know this guy, he sits about 80,
He's been through world war two,
He sits at home and dreams about Lenny,
and all the things he went through

Thought about all the reasons, dreams of a life with you,
Giving up on these feelings, we both know I hold on to

I'm not going there, I'm not staying there,
I'm not going if I can't go with you,
Won't you take it, Why can't you face it,
I'm not going if I can't go with you

I know this guy, he sits about 20,
His mind is fading too,
He sits at home and dreams about Penny,
And all the things they should do

Thought about all the reasons, dreams of a life with you,
Giving up on these feelings, we both know I hold on to

I'm not going there, I'm not staying there,
I'm not going if I can't go with you,
Won't you take it, Why can't you face it,
I'm not going if I can't go with you
