Andy Smythe: Home

Welcome to! A talented singer-songwriter, Andy Smythe is a versatile and gifted musician He has a truly fantastic tenor voice with a huge range that is reminiscent of Jeff and Tim Buckley. Andy has played and performed with the very best in English folk at venues throughout the UK such as the Red Lion folk club in Birmingham and at Broadstairs Folk Festival. He's a classically trained pianist and his playing will bear comparison to such luminaries as Rufus Wainright and Randy Newman. On the acoustic guitar Andy prefers to play more energetic and emotive songs and he has been compared to Phil Ochs. Andy brings his Roland Stage piano and Tascam studio speakers to a gig to give the very best in acoustic sound quality and will alternate between playing piano and guitar.
