Kerryman Colin Andrew has honed his alt-pop style through live performances, international residencies and TV appearances since 2012. The singer-songwriter has roots in indie, folk and traditional Irish music, which inform his distinct sound and honest lyrics. Andrew’s captivating, high-energy performances guarantee his audiences a show that blends tradition, musicianship and creativity.

After over a decade of live performance, Andrew has earned his reputation as a diligent and committed artist. Two years in residency at Raglan Road, Disney World allowed him to celebrate his Irish music roots. He made his live TV debut on Ceiliúradh na Féile Pádraig’ (TG4 and BBC 2) alongside The High Kings and Daniel O Donnell. Off the back of his success, Andrew counts national radio play from Radio Kerry, RedFM, and KCLR on his growing list of achievements.

Following the acclaim of his highly anticipated debut single, Too Far from Kind, in 2019, Andrew released One Night, featured in Spotify’s A Breath of Fresh Eire playlist. He teams his releases with innovative music videos; his last single, Sleeping On My Dreams, was no exception. This impactful work established Andrew as one of Ireland’s most capable and hard-working contemporary musicians.

A striking presence on the London music scene, Andrew released his debut EP in July 2023, his most personal and engaging work. The release rewarded his audience with frank lyrics and well-crafted melodies. This distinctive body of work demonstrates the evolution of Andrew’s style; the maturity of his career, teamed with his extensive performance portfolio, has cemented his reputation as a staple of the alternative music scene.

‘Through years of live performances, the Kerryman has successfully built up a reputation for emotional, powerful musicianship with the ability to make you feel as if every line he is singing is telling your story.’ – Covert Music Club
