Andrew Darling singer/songwriter
Andrew Darling is a musician and artist of many lives: singer/songwriter, jazz trumpeter, published poet, inspired front-man. In this solo incarnation he offers his songs that are born from the depths of a life devoted to seeking beauty and fascination – songs of love, adventure, chaos and the treasures found in the wreckage. With a voice that both weeps and soars, Andrew’s songs inhabit the places we all know but hesitate to express.
Andrew is a seasoned musician and songwriter, having performed at festivals such as Woodford Folk Festival, Illawarra Folk Festival, Recharge 2020 and the Sydney Opera House’s Vivid Festival. His original band, The Anecdote released their haunting debut album ‘Carved Upon the Air’ to acclaim in 2017 – ‘The music is a revelation and their creation is something truly unique.’ (The Music).
Throughout his career, Andrew has performed and recorded with high calibre artists such as Dan Kelly, Greg Arnold, Tibet's Tenzin Choegyal, Carus Thompson and Gareth Liddiard (The Drones). He was the frontman of Byron Bay's most celebrated funk band Fatter Than Nusrat and has performed with dub outfit Sine, Mariachi band Sin Frontera, swing band Dr Jazz and funk behemoth Old Greg, amongst many others.
