In the inner west hub of Newtown, Andy’s shows are urban legend. It is here that he has honed his craft, spending the last decade on stages, captivating audiences and inking memories.
You’d be hard pressed to find a Newtown venue where Andy hasn't had crowds spilling onto the streets; where you wouldn’t hear stories of him climbing up on top of the bar or piano, guitar in hand, punters eagerly pushing a mic stand up to him as he rips through yet another amazing version of his original tunes. Mention his name to any publican or local music lover and you will be greeted with a smile. They know how good he is. They know what he can do.
Andy has the gift and skills of a classic songwriter. A true lyricist that wears his heart on his sleeve. A born and raised Australian country boy, taking inspiration from American writers like Neil Young, Glenn Campbell, Leon Russell, Gillian Welsh and Daniel Romano; Andy presents us with his own personal brand of Americana. If you hear an Andy Golledge song, you’ll know it.
Andy’s band has attracted some of the genre’s finest Australian talent, in Leroy Lee and Caitlin Harnett. Both amazing artists in their own right, Leroy and Caitlin both have extensive touring and musical achievements to their names in Canada and the U.S, and bring to the band a wealth of experience and craft. The full band 6 piece show is an unforgettable experience. They are booked weekly within the inner west community of venues, often headlining events and pulling capacity crowds. They’ve opened for Sticky Fingers, played the Metro, and have been regulars on bills at Newtown Social Club, The Union Hotel, The Marly, The Blacksheep, the list goes on...
Andy’s music spans from the party scene to the intimate and fragile. When he plays solo, the whole room stops to listen. He has the ability to move an audience from the moment he starts to sing.
Work has begun on the debut album, seeing Andy team up with production duo John Vella and Ryan Miller, who recently took fellow Sydney band Tenderfoot to Abbey Road. The record will span the vast collection of Andy’s catalogue; from his most intimate works through to the live energy of his stage band sound. It’s due for completion Mid-Late 2017. Andy will be travelling to Nashville & New York in September.
“Much more than just another alt-country or folk singer; he’s a troubadour, a wild man, a gentle soul – at times all of these at once.” - Anonymous
