Andy Clockwise: Stealing Cars
In 2003, Andy Kelly was homeless and destitute in his home country of Australia. After bizarre circumstances led him to help a friend with recording an EP, Andy fervently poured his passions into his own music. The result was his own debut EP “Song Exhibition,” which Australian radio station Triple J discovered and promoted heavily. From there on out Andy, working from then on as “Andy Clockwise” had his very own career in music, writing, creating and producing what he likes to call “Schizo Pop,” music that is “ever changing” but always emotionally captivating.
Now years later Andy who is also a Los Angeles resident, is releasing his finest work to date. “Are You Well?” is the product of years of refining his craft, as the music synthesizes many stylistic influences into one sound that is warmly familiar and classic yet uniquely fresh. His haunting voice and orchestral arrangements are deeply moving and resurrect the artistic vision of such innovators as Nick Cave, American Music Club, and more recently The National. Andy recently recorded with the iconic Chris Knox, laying down the track “The Socialite” in the late Elliott Smith’s Hollywood studio. The full-length album of the same title is slated for release later this year.
Currently returning from an Australian tour with Julian Casablancas, Andy will continue his tradition of shocking American audiences with his uniquely interactive live performance which, as Andy puts it, is “definitely not an ‘us’ and ‘them’ experience.” Managing to play all roles at once both in-studio and live, Andy Clockwise is an artist that never ceases to amaze, always pushing boundaries and pouring every ounce of his passions into his musical vision.
