We are really excited to announce the release of Andrews Roachford’s album ‘Where I Stand’. It will be available as a digital download from 10th April and also as a limited CD edition available exclusively through this website from 30th April.
Andrew explains, “It’s a very honest album, just the songs and not too many fancy production tricks. For me simplicity is the key, the past couple of years have been a really creative time for me. Going back to basics with my acoustic touring really inspired me and that’s what I wanted to capture with the ‘Where I Stand’ album.”
Stand out tracks such as ‘About Now’, with it’s stripped back production and heart rending lyrical honesty and the uplifting Coldplay-esque ‘Complicated’ with it’s sing-along melodies, perfectly showcase the sound of an artist on top of his game and packing an emotional punch and maturity that few artists achieve.
This album sums up the theme of relationships in a way everyone can recognize, and also represents different chapters in his musical life over the past five years that have taken him from Germany and France to Australia and Ibiza. As Andrew puts it “This album explores the dynamic of, love, passion and relationships on many different levels. Just the songs and the minimum amount of music to support it, which is how it works live”
“On the album About now has the right balance of soulfulness and it feels real and it’s talking about that all too familiar raw feeling of going through a break-up but still dealing with it. With Home, I used being at war as an example of an extreme situation that makes you realize what really matters most – it still comes back to love and actually having a connection with someone and wanting to be with them.”
Coming back stronger than ever with an emotionally exposed, stripped back sound that few have the raw ability to pull off, ‘Where I Stand’ is sure to usher in the next stage of Andrew Roachford’s musical career.
‘Where I Stand’ will be available here on Andrew Roachford’s official website from the 30th April.
UK tour dates will be announced at the start of May.
