Andy Wright

Andy Wright

Andy Wright is a London producer that works out of 'Sphere Studios' ( not far from my house). He has worked with Annie Lennox, Simply Red, Imelda May to name but a few... he usually calls and says 'Can you pop over I need a weird instrument playing!'. This time was the Sousaphone. Once I squeezed myself into it, I had fun.

Why I'm showing you this, I have know idea!!.. I think at the time I fell in love with each one of these girls... they never loved me back though...Boo... maybe it was the bright yellow coat?? it couldn't possibly be the fact that i was a Euphonium player could it.

Salford

Salford

I studied 2 years at 'Salford University' ( studying A-levels), this is the only picture that I have of those days. I think we were about to go on stage in Iceland. I got SO drunk after that show that I still haven't touched whiskey since and that was 20 years ago. One of my best friends in the world Simon Colam ( 3 in from the right) studied there with me and we both moved to London at the same time, sharing a room in our first year at 'Guildhall'.

Michael Buble

This was a TV date that was with Michael for the final of the UK 'X-FACTOR' show. He definitely didn't get voted off that week.

I played 2nd keys on this gig as well ( to support the string players). Rob Barron patched my string sound in and named it 'The Burnley Symphonic'. ( It was funny at the time)

Through EMG management I had been asked to MD and arrange the strings/brass and rhythm parts for a VIP gig in Belgium, of Motown and Burt Bacharach music. What amazing tunes that guy wrote.

Sometimes me and my friend 'Jamie Talbot' go to Warehouse Rave's and play a selection off love themes from the films with this classic combination of penny whistle and tuba. ( 'Titanic' is my favorite but Jamie likes 'Dirty dancing' the best )

I think this was from an after show party, after playing the same music for 2 month's, it's always nice to let everyone play some other music and let there hair down.

I think this was a picture taken whilst touring with 'Blur', at the famous music festival in Copenhagen.

Buble

I have arranged ALL of Michael Buble's tracks for 4 horns and rhythm for a tribute act that did a few gigs. He sounded more like Buble than Buble did.

London Horns

This was taken at the 'Pizza Express Jazz Club' in Soho while we were down there with 'The Horns' one night.

Another picture of me performing a track from the 'London Horns' album ( available at all good record stores and from Barnaby's STORE). I can tell by the look on my face what track I was playing. ( honest)

I believe this was taken whilst I was touring with the legendary 'Kenny Wheeler', An all star band featuring every leading voice in the British Jazz scene including one of my favorites 'Dave Holland' on Bass.

An artist that was helped by EMG management, an amazing talent from Belgium...'Lauren Anny J' singing here with yours truly on keys, for a showcase at the 'Troubadour', Earls Ct.

Solo Gigs

Solo Gigs

At most of my own gigs, the audience gets the pleasure of listening to my 'banter' between tunes. Not many of them laugh but if I keep telling them that I'm funny then maybe they will start to believe it??

The 'Pond Life Horns' playing in Marbella at the 'Nikki Beach' resort.

Where it all began

Where it all began

The 'Burnley Youth Brass Band', led by an amazing man 'Geoff Balson'. I rehearsed and toured ( even at this age) with this band for 6 years, every Tuesday night and local concerts in and around the north of England on top. Principle Euphonium...I used to carry that thing around in a bright blue case..leading the way in fashion (I'd like to think).

Where it all began

Where it all began

Even then i was an absolute 'HUNK!' and before you say it...the other kids were in a lower year to me. ( I know I'm tall but I'm not a freakish giant or something)

London Horns

London Horns

The 'London Horns' invite singers up to sing sometimes and who better than the stunning vocal talent of 'Hayley Sanderson'. (Her boyfriend must be a lucky chap).

Ben Crossland

Ben Crossland

This band was put together to do a small UK tour featuring a quartet of some of London's finest jazz musicians. Mark Nightingale (trb), Martin Shaw and Steve Waterman (trp).

Abbey Road studio's, I love this place. Every time i record there I just feel special. The history and talent that has recorded there throughout the years. This is obviously the famous Beatles 'studio 2'. AMAZING!

Duo gigs

I often play small jazz gigs in the corner of peoples rooms, in and around London. I genuinely love it, especially when the other person I'm playing with is 'James Knight'.

I love this picture, it's probably me re-arranging the horn line and telling the trumpet player to play an octave higher ( I quite like it when they do that) ( it might have sounded like..'shove it up th'octave mate!' ( in my thick northern accent).

Kid Creole

Another favorite picture of mine. The 'Pond life horns' stood in.. yes you guest it... A POND! Now for some reason.. I look like a giant again ( that keeps happening)

This was for a filmed session that was recorded at Shepperton studio's ( Home of all the Bond Films) I think we had to play a 007 medley. A small buzz.

New Signings

New Signings

I work a lot with not only famous people but with new artists trying to get a break. This was a little tour supporting 'Simply Red' with a band called 'Jay and the Boys'. A brilliant band that we all worked for peanuts for, on the dream that he will get signed and take us with him. As soon as he did get his big, record label break, the label changed the bands name to...'JAY!' (need I say anymore)

MR FLOWERS

MR FLOWERS

One of the best trumpet players in the world and my life long friend. Chatting over a beer about melodic minors AGAIN! Those things can change the world.

I wish I had more pictures of me playing with Guy.I have tour in different size bands with Guy throughout the years and loved every gig. He is not only a great trumpet player/arranger but a real inspiration to me and a good friend.

I can see that 'Mike Smith' was depping for Ed on this one. He went on to be a major voice on keyboards with the 'Gorillas', 'Monkey' and later I toured with Mike around the world with BLUR.

During the Kylie tour we managed to organize a gig at a venue in Sydney, just for the cast and crew. One of THE most brilliant nights of my life. I remember one of the dancers saying 'it was so good to hear you guys 'flexing' your musical chops, I had know idea you were so good!'( after 2 years of touring)

It was Halloween in Columbia, so the Kylie cast decided to get into fancy dress and go out clubbing. Little did we know (Graeme Blevins, Graeme Flowers and I) that they don't really take on the 'HORROR' bit of Halloween out there... they just wear fancy dress. A bit awkward going out dressed like 3 gynecologists when everybody else was wearing Disney costumes. OOPS!
