Andy Collins is a renowned bass player and singer / songwriter. He was one of the principal songwriters/singers in the critically acclaimed Welsh 6-piece. The Storys (www.thestorys.co.uk).
Whilst probably best known for his work with “The Storys”, Andy has performed alongside Sir Elton John, Robert Plant, Celine Dion, Joe Cocker, Van Morrison, Bernie Marsden, and appeared on stage with Joe Walsh at a Jim Cappaldi gala evening featuring Bill Wyman, Ray Cooper, Yusaf Islam, Jon Lord, Steve Winwood and Gary Moore.
Having recently toured with The Ultimate Eagles, Andy is currently working on his second album, co-writing with a number of other highly acclaimed artists, and will be heading out to Nashville this coming August to play alongside John Carter Cash (Johnny Cash’s son).
Andy released his first solo album – “Closure” – to critical acclaim in 2012, and is currently working on a new release.
Recorded at Sonic One Studios and produced by Tim Hamill and Andy Collins, the album marked a return to the form and is a must for all lovers of The Storys.
The usual suspects were there to lend Andy a hand – ex-Storys’ Rob Thompson and Alan Thomas along with Matthew John and Tim Hamill all played various instrumentation throughout.
“These songs are a mixture of new ideas,” said Andy, “along with others that didn’t make The Storys’ albums (for whatever reason) and a couple have been around for years! The hard part was narrowing down to 10 songs!”
There are, apparently, another 13 ideas waiting in the wings!
Look out for advance previews of the new album over the coming months and information regarding release date and live shows here : http://www.reverbnation.com/andycollinsbass
