Blending groove with a pop sense of catchy melodies, poet Andy Jans-Brown writes and performs songs you want to sing along with. Some of the highlights of Andy’s career include opening for Nick Cage and The Bad Seeds, having his film clip You Got Me Thinking broadcast on ABC’S Rage program and his composition Despite Everything included in the soundtrack for Showtime Foxtel’s successful Aussie glam/drama series Satisfaction. Andy draws upon all things human and seeks at every turn to connect with his audience, endearing himself with honesty, sincerity, humanity, poetry and his musical sigh at the beautiful of all. And all accompanied by his band of hot young players who many of you will recognise from other combos. A very different afternoon of music for By The River Restaurant in Ballina on Sunday from 3pm.
