Andy Layfield (Blues guitarist / harmonica / singer / song writer)
It was at the age of 16 that Andy first picked up a guitar. Inspired by many of the 60's pioneers such as Jimi Hendrix and Neil Young, it was the ability to express through improvisation that began a lifelong love of music.
In recent years, Andy's burning passion for Blues music forged a clear pathway towards writing and recording his own original Blues albums. Drawing on a myriad of life experiences Andy's unique style of blues rhythm's in combination with soulful vocals and harmonica takes the music on a journey beyond traditional 12 bar blues formats. No two songs sound the same, with unexpected musical surprises around every corner.
Releasing his second album in July 2014 "Change my hat", Andy is looking forward to testing convention by presenting this new body of music with "Cello" in some tracks. And it works!!
