About me

I’m Andy (Andrea Marin), a 33 years old guitarist based in London (UK) with 12 years of professional experience performing and recording in the UK, Europe and the U.S.A.

Since I moved to London in 2007, I’ve worked as a guitarist with many artists and bands, supporting Stereophonics across Europe with “Hero” (pop/rock band) and supporting Leona Lewis with pop/soul singer Nikitta Angus in the UK.

I’ve also been doing sessions in recording studios with several well-known producers in the UK:  Jon Moon, Ian Grimble, Gavin Monaghan, Andy Withmore, Billy Lawrie, Richard Cardwell.

Recently I’ve been touring and recording with the singer/vocal coach/producer Lloyd Wade: his work includes collaborations with Take That, Eliza Doolittle, Stevie Wonder, Ellie Goulding and Little Mix.

While I was on the road with Lloyd Wade, I’ve played supporting shows Thomas Mcclary founder of The Commodores.

I play different styles of music: pop, rock, folk/acoustic, blues, hard rock, funk, soul, hip hop, r & b, I’m very versatile and open-minded, always give my best!

I like to be creative and give my contribution composing great songs in the studio and stunning performances live and I’m loving what I’m doing!
