Andy Fairweather Low's pedigree is the stuff rock dreams are made of. He first came to prominence at the vanguard of the new youthful expression of music as the lead singer in Amen Corner. The 60s saw them clock up hit after pop hit. Songs such as 'Bend Me Shape Me', 'Hello Suzy', '( If Paradise is ) Half As Nice' are internationally remembered to this day. But if you were paying close attention you might have picked up a clue in the magnificent 'Gin House' to Andy's future musical collaborations.

Since the early days Andy has gone on to work with Eric Clapton (he has been a member of EC's band for over 20 years!), George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, David Crosby, The Band, Elton John, Roger Waters, Richard and Linda Thompson, Dave Gilmour, The Who, BB King, Joe Cocker, Steve Winwood, Donald 'Duck' Dunn, Jimmy Page, Ronnie Lane, Linda Ronstadt, Roddy Frame, Emmylou Harris, Joe Satriani, the Bee Gees, Jeff Beck, The Impressions, Lonnie Donegan, Ringo Starr, Steve Gadd, David Sanborn, Benmont Tench, Warren Zevon, Charlie Watts, Mary J. Blige, Dave Edmunds, Georgie Fame, Bonnie Raitt, Otis Rush, Phil Collins, Van Morrison, Gerry Rafferty, Chris Rea, Buddy Guy, Chris Barber, Jackson Browne, Bill Wyman, Sheryl Crow, Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown, Pete Townshend... and hundreds more.

Having had solo hits in the 70s, his first album in 24 years, 'Sweet Soulful Music', was released late in 2007 followed by The Very Best Of Andy Fairweather Low which was released in the UK in June 2008 with a live DVD following hot on its heels. A world tour as musical director with Roger Waters' band then a European tour with Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings might be difficult to top for most people - but not for Andy Fairweather Low who just segued smoothly into a major solo tour with some of the world's finest musicians in his band.

2013 saw Andy & the band opening the shows on Eric Clapton's European tour, headline The Americana Festival and complete their first tour in Japan with 8 shows in Tokyo. Their UK Autumn 2013 tour in support of the 'Zone O Tone' CD was so well received that further early Spring dates in 2014 were added in the UK and Germany and 2014 started with the band on Bob Harris' rock show playing in session and, when they came back from Germany before picking up their UK tour leg, they appeared for two nights as guests in an all-star cast celebrating Albert Lee's 70th birthday at The Cadogan Hall, London where they were also enlisted as the house band for a number of household names.

Andy and bassist Dave Bronze then picked up touring again as members of Eric Clapton's band and for good measure Andy took part, playing guitar, in a special all-star re-recording for Radio 2 of Rock Around The Clock for a series celebrating the Birth Of Rock & Roll which was broadcast in May this year.
