Andy Hobson

Debut Album Sampler (Demos)


This is a long and compelling story with many twists and turns. But I shall keep it short because nobody has the attention span to read anymore. In my 20s I was the drummer in a band signed to Parlophone. That ended as these things do but I’ve continued to make music ever since. During Covid lockdown 2019 I unexpectedly started writing songs. I’d never written a song before but suddenly they came very naturally.  I went with this new found creativity and began recording demos at home.  These demos are now forming into album that I intend to finish and release in 2022. The songs speak of life, death and love. So everything really. I hope they lift your spirits during these strange times we’re in.  

I’m in my early 40s and have kids now. They’re the best! At this stage I’m just enjoying my new found love of singing and songwriting. I’ll be playing some London shows along the way too. Then I’m going to see what happens. Life is for living to the full and I’ve had enough surprises to know that anything can happen (see below). So I’m following my heart and this burst of creativity that I have found in making music.

I’m on the hunt for musicians to play some shows with so please get in touch if you’re in London (I’m SE London) and play either bass or acoustic guitar. If you have BV skills that’s even better. Although this is currently a casual project, I’m looking for a real players and not beginners. It’s a big ask at this level, I know. But I’ve been doing this for 20 years and know that it never works out in the end of you settle for less than you need for your music.  Lastly, please don’t get in touch if you read my facts bit and are expecting a quick win. We’re starting from scratch here. 

For a quick listen here’s a Spotify Playlist. (These are polished demos but will take another form for my album)

Oh you want more? Here’s some interesting facts about my good self:


1. I played Wembley Arena once. Just as a support slot but the arena none the less. 
2. I once introduced the Dalai Lama at an event.
3. I met Slash in a hotel in Osaka. His was a lovely man. 
4. I worked for 5 years managing a child therapy service in a primary school in London. I loved that job. 
5. I’m a spiritual teacher (of sorts…under my real name Andy Hobson). I have over 5 million plays on my meditation and 100,000 followers on a meditation app called Insight Timer. The name change is to make admin more straight forward. That is paramount. 
6. I’ve had 26 jobs since leaving school. (highlights being gardener, water meter reader, bike mechanic and fundraiser) 
7. I’ve been featured on the cover of London cyclist magazine. 
8. I was on tour supporting The Killers when they released Mr Brightside. 
9. Pos from De La Soul really like a drum cover I did on youtube of ‘Tread Water’. 
10. I also play guitar, violin, piano, synths (everyone plays synth) hang drum, bass guitar and mandolin. I play the drums the best though.
11. I really don’t like people who brag about all the things they’ve done. It makes others feel rubbish. Keep it to yourself already!
