Having been in various bands for the last 10 years, Andy is now embarking on a solo career with a few musician pals helping out. With an impressive, entertaining live show and a growing fan base, things are looking good. A singer/songwriter with a difference, Andy’s songs vary from acoustic ballads to good old rock with punk influences.
Andy has released 2 EP’s and 1 LP in the last 3 years, with plans for another EP towards the end of 2015.
Having played shows with The Feelers, Paul Ubana Jones, Greg Johnson, The Jordan Luck Band, and Music in the Parks, Andy is certainly impressing a wide range of audiences with a mixture of upbeat tunes and acoustic based pop/rock songs. His first full album Falling, received a great review from NZ Musician Magazine. “Andy Richards is what NZ music is all about.” Falling is now available on itunes.
Andy’s style has been compared to many established bands/musicians including Jack Johnson, Weezer, Green Day, Elvis Costello, and Jason Mraz, amongst many others. He does, however, have a unique style unto his own.
