 More info

Andy Gorwell is an Australian based singer/songwriter and multi instrumentalist who for many years has been playing sporadically in ever changing incarnations in and around the city of Melbourne.

From the smoke filled bars of St Kildas Esplanade Hotel to the quaint environs of Fitzroy’s Empress Hotel he has continued to make and play music capricious in nature but never transgressing his beloved and hard sell roots genre. Incorporating blues, country rock and folk and drawing on influences from the sixties and seventies country blues era (Stones, Parsons, Faces and like artists) his songs tell tales of hardship, heartache and disappointment to, joy, love, and self-complacency.

Beginning as a solo artist and playing for many years around the local traps he quickly forged friendships and jammed with many local Melbourne singer songwriters and musicians who shared the same passion for the obscure. He has played and shared the stage with many artists as diverse as the relatively unknown singer songwriters to some of the heavyweights of the industry. His recordings have garnered airplay across the country and overseas on community radio and received favourable reviews in the street press and music magazines alike, etc..

Undeterred by the inherent fickle nature of the music business which leaves many a musician disenchanted, Gorwell remains as passionate as ever and continues to write, record and perform. His latest album 'City Walls', the first in almost 6 years marks a new chapter in Andy's musical journey which sees him push boundaries and broaden musical horizons. Helped out by some of Melbourne's finest musicians including Peter Pascotto on drums, Nicolas Lyon on violin, Michael Hubbard on lap steel and Brendan Mitchell on pedal steel, Andy has put together a finely crafted and musically diverse second offering that should no doubt find an appreciative audience and please even the staunchest of critics. 


  " Gorwell's world weary delivery and songs remind me of vintage Rolling Stones country leanings." Beat Magazine Aust.

"..an admirable effort." Time Off Magazine Aust,

"..shows enormous potential.." South Australian Blues Society Aust.

 "..this is a very accomplished very together work." Roots Town Magazine Belgium.

 "Kasey Chambers look out!..this fella is an artist to keep an eye on.' Rikks Reviews USA

'.. an album you'll find yourself reaching for time and again to pop in the player and just enjoy.' Home of Rock Magazine, Germany.

 "This is a guy of great talent..What a great country rock album." Musikansich.de, Germany 7/10 Muziekwereld Magazine ,Germany 4/5 stars
