Andy Duerden's Bio
My Musical Rock and Roller Coaster ride has taken me far and wide!
I can work as solo artist, duo, trio or up to 8 piece band only working with the finest session musicians.
Having attained ALCM level as a pianist by the age of 15, I drifted off into the murky world of songwriting. I’ve written music for an Edinburgh show, BLISS, starring Emily Blunt and Adrian Rawlins which had 5* reviews and later ran for 4 months in New Zealand. My solo album Masterpiece was another highlight in 2010. Then throw in several TV credits and co-writes.
Teaching has filled another musical space and I’m proud to see several of my ex students out there and chasing the dream for themselves.
Mix in plenty of session work as either singer or keys player. Then there’s copious amounts of live work from the local pub, to MD of House Band at The Original Songwriters Club, W14, to top end corporate functions (where my clients have included Stephen Hendry, Lord/Lady Taverners, Escape Hotels Barbados) and through to festivals.
Recently I’ve been concentrating on more work as a Musical Director and have access to the very best session players.
Just to add spice to the equation, I’m legally trained so could happily help you with a legal problem and then help you write a song about it!
“Andy started by playing the organ at the church! He then supplied a superb accordion and fiddle duo who played as they wandered through our guests. And to top it all off, Andy fronted an all star 8 piece band which kept the crowd on their feet all night. Outstanding! Thanks so much!”
“I booked the trio – Andy, Mags and Bob the fiddle player for my wife’s 50th. Superb! They played every special song we asked for and loads more. The whole place was jumping and they really helped us all have a great night.”
“Thank you for making a fantastic evening – loads of people have said that they loved the music.”
“Just a quick note to thank you so so much for playing at our wedding and helping to make it such a success. You played so many great tunes, and everyone had a brilliant time. Loads of guests have since told us how good you were and how much they enjoyed the dancing!!!”
