” John Andrews has a distinctive voice, like he’s been soaked in a vat of bourbon. His music incorporates Blues, Jazz and experimental tendencies verging into Folk and Punk. His lyrics frequently present atmospheric portraits of grotesque, often seedy characters and places although he has a penchant for more conventional ballads – Paul McMordie – Guitar Festival
“One of Belfasts most original artist to emerge from the Belfast underground scene. John Andrews has whipped up a hybrid of Jazz, Blues and Hip Hop that is all his own. There is death, danger and darkness in this man’s music, the feeling is palpable, however, he redeems the effect with true Belfast Wit and a soaring tenor that pulls at the heart. John Andrews might just be the real deal” Declan Corr
