He has backed up the reputation he forged on the show with scores of highly successful live shows, and four popular UK tours. Andy’s incredible vocal talent has seen him perform to sell out audiences at world famous venues such as the Royal Albert Hall.
Andy released his fourth studio album Remember When…in March 2012. Recorded at the world famous Steelworks Studios in Sheffield, it is a passionate, intimate recording, showcasing two brand new tracks written by celebrated songwriter Eliot Kennedy and ten cover versions of classic soul songs – sounds that made Andy the man and the artist he is today.
The album was supported by the successful History of the Big Bands nationwide tour during which Andy teamed up with one of the country’s leading big bands to perform a selection of swing and jazz classics from legendary band leaders such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Glenn Miller.
Yet, of all Andy’s achievements in the music industry, none is more special to him than an appearance made at the ‘after party’ of the 2006 Ivor Novello Awards. Andy performed a medley of songs by legendary production duo Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. With the production veterans in the audience, Andy performed a tribute to their work including a show stopping rendition of ‘Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now’.
The demand for Andy’s talent is global, seeing him perform all over the world in as far-flung places as the US, Egypt, Turkey, Serbia, the Irish Republic, Tenerife and, of course all four corners of the United Kingdom, plus there is more to come this year.
Andy is available for a wide range of live performances, including festivals, corporate events, private functions and charity occasions. As one of the UK’s most soulful singers, he is the perfect choice to dazzle audiences with his powerful voice and stage presence. From large scale events to more intimate occasions, Andy will adapt his show to suit his audience. In 2009 Muhammad Ali extended Andy a special invitation to perform for him and in 2008 he was proud to represent Great Britain at the Eurovision Song Contest. Late 2008 and early 2009 brought him great success with An Evening with Andy Abraham and, of course, the History of the Big Bands was a seminal feature of 2012.
In 2013 Andy appeared with celebrated soul artist Mica Paris at the star-studded birthday of designer and TV ‘Dragon’ Kelly Hoppen’s partner, businessman John Gardiner. Back in 2010 Andy performed along with Beverley Knight at the 21st birthday celebrations of Arsenal & England football star, Theo Walcott, creating such an impression that Theo’s father, Don Walcott, invited him back for his own wedding in 2014. Andy has performed in both Egypt and Cyprus on behalf of Thomson Sensatori and entertained guests on Celebrity Cruises.
