Bottom Drawer

 Songs From the Bottom Drawer   The first A&O album this originally started out with the albums first single “Yesterday’s Man” and as a series of backing tracks recorded for live PA’sthat eventually evolved into The Birds & the Bees; Less is More and Less than Zero.  The  project then grew from these initial tracks into a full blown albumincluding the cover version of the Curtis Mayfield classic “Pusher Man”“Looking at his slight frame it is impossible to match it with the colourful earthy Tones that flow effortlessly through his songs” Nick Robinson Music WeekSongs from the Bottom Drawer - Andy & The Other One
  La La La I’m not Listening     The second and more rounded album has less material from Andy’s previous Bands catalogue and a definite production style begins to emerge.   “Funky, Soulful, Organic. Simply Great .” online review by Leroy Jones “Good “influences” for a good sound! Just an incredible voice.”  online review by Underground LoopholeLa La La... I'm Not Listening - Andy & The Other One
