Andrew Roachford plays March dates

Rock and soul singer Andrew Roachford returns with a new album coinciding with UK and European tour dates. ‘Encore’ showcases Andrew’s unique interpretation of some classic tracks such as Sly Stone’s ‘Family Affair’, Bill Withers’ classic ‘Grandma’s Hands’ and John lennon’s ‘Imagine’.

Taking the old and reinventing it is a core theme of the ‘Encore’ album. Says Andrew: “This album showcases some of the songs that have fired me up over the years to become a performer. I once read that a sign of a good singer wasn’t just about ability but more importantly about someone that when they sang you believe every word ”.

The past three years have seen Andrew co-writing and touring with Mike and the Mechanics whilst also enjoying film success by the way of having his song “Cuddly Toy” placed in the movie “Alpha Papa”.
