ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Andy Steele has been writing music since starting his first band, The Snakeskins, in the early nineties. A few of these songs have been posted recently at www.myspace.com/thesnakeskins.

Andy then joined forces with ex Long Ryder, writer and broadcaster Sid Griffin and played piano in his newly UK based group The Coal Porters. Andy spent the majority of the nineties doing session work and played keyboards for many years with the Liverpool group China Crisis.

In 2006 Andy released his first LP of songs as the group MuddyHead. Land and Sea was released in February 2006 on his own Word Is Out Records, distributed by Shellshock, and received some enthusiastic support from BBC Radio 2, notably Mark Radcliffe, Janice Long (where he appeared in session)and Tim Smith.

In April this year, Andy supported the band America on the UK leg of their European tour. The tour was a huge success for Andy and his next record, True Believers and the Guises of the Weasel, was released under his own name on September 10th 2007, again on Word Is Out Records and distributed by Shellshock.

Andy has started work on his next album, Night Fishing, expected to be completed in the Autumn.

As well as producing his own music, Andy has a production company(AMP) with the record producer Lance Thomas, and has recently produced and licensed a new group called Julius Martov and The Sexy Mistakes.
Andy is also starting work on a stage musical, a collaboration with the scriptwriter Rachel Connor, and is also soon to start work on an album with the writer, banjo player and BBC Young Folk Musician of the Year Award winner John Dowling.

Brilliant Compositions, Superb Musicianship,
Where do I even begin with an album like this? Well, Andy Steele showcases his talents with a pencil and manuscript paper showcasing of his original compositions in his first album under his own name with a great support team of musicians behind him. I think "Land and Sea" by Muddyhead is one of the most iconic albums from start to finish, and this album definitely ranks up there with that album. Make sure you check out his album "Night Fishing" which features more of his original works.

Favorites off of this album include "Vincent," "Lover's Lament," "No Relief Except For Sleeping" and "Penguin Eggs." Each time I visit the Liverpool area I have all of Andy's recordings playing on my IPod as I walk around the city. Andy's music, along with the music from Gary Daly and Eddie Lundon of China Crisis, represents Liverpool to me. I could easily take the photographs I've taken around the city and use their music as the soundtrack to support the photos.

I hope to meet Andy Steele one of these days, and also get to hear him in concert in Liverpool. He is a true musician with more talent in his compositions and performing than I could ever dream to have in my own life. I'm happy to buy multiple copies of his albums to share with my friends so they can also enjoy listening to the intricate and melodic arrangements.

I only wish I could rate this album more than 5 stars!
