In 2017, Andy Nelson began playing around the local venues in his native Central West NSW region. It didn’t take long before the troubadour decided he would enter the realm of song writing –and has never looked back.
In just a few months Andy wrote and recorded his debut E.P, enveloping songs about family, love and loss with his rustic Americana style. Quickly taking it to the people he has supported the Small Halls Festival Tour and played at several festivals such at the National Folk Festival, The End Festival, Inland Sea of Sounds and was a semi-finalist in the 2018 Bluesfest busking competition.
In 2019, Andy spent 10 days in a secluded farm house in the Kangaroo Valley, with award winning producer and drummer from the highly acclaimed band;19-Twenty, Syd Green. There, they recorded his debut album ‘Man on the Mountain’.
The song themes once again reveal there are some deep thoughts, whether it’s dealing with greed or simply pursuing what you love vs accepting the status quo.
Andy continues to play at festivals, venues and on lineups all around the country.
