Andy Gower now has a website up.
Check him out he's rate mint larke....
is not an enticing headline.
my bet is you've never visited us.
it's just what do i care where the guy's from? what does he sound like?
he might well be the best thing ever but all you've given us to go on is that he's from Stoke.
you'd be better to say something like 'great songwriter that fans of XYZ would be into'.
just trying to help. :P
anyway, he's been compared to Billy Bragg and Noel Gallagher.
His songs are simple enough as far as the tunes go, but its his lyricism where he really excells.
Tales of life in Northern Britain, working dead end jobs and failed Romances. His songs contain messages that we can all identify with.
Plus he's a really nice bloke, have a chat with him you'll see.
Sounds cliche I know, but usually I hate that sort of thing, but I fell in love with this mans music when I first heard it about two years ago. Perhaps its the whole idea of a stoke on Trent local hero (we've not got many like him) and its easy to get swept away with the romantic ideal, but I really think theres room for Gower out there. Albums out soon.....
Not really, just Andy Gower!
