- On The Run The John Andrews Band 3:04
Showcasing his raw, almost-naked autobiographical song writing and drowning in emotion drawn from his love of blues, hiphop, jazz and punk, wears the author’s heart on it’s sleeve and was written just after John’s release, with a further nine songs penned during his spell inside. Having already gained a name for himself as a solo live performer playing the likes of Sunflower, Eastside Arts and Feile festivals, five of these songs were released by John as the EP in 2018.
With influences ranging from 2pac, Pink Floyd, The Clash, Pixies, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar and sharing a drive to perform John’s songs live, were soon playing talked-about shows in Belfast and further afield in Northern Ireland, putting out their debut single in March 2020. Gaining radio plays both at home and as far afield as Australia, the USA, China, France and Austria, the single was produced by (David Bowie, Rolling Stones), with the accompanying video filmed in a cemetery and chapel.
Moving forwards and now with over 20 original songs under their belt, The John Andrews Band are preparing for the release of their debut album. Featuring ‘On The Run’ and titled ‘Blinded By The Light’, the album will document John’s musical journey from 2016 – 2021 and is tentatively set for release in August next year, following a further four singles and videos.
