Andy Roberts

Andy Roberts, a nice man

This page is a tribute to our friend Andy, a great guy that you really should have gotten to know. He was an incredibly talented songwriter, guitarist, singer, artist and writer, and will hopefully continue to get the respect he deserves.

Andy's music side projects

Mister Songs
Andy started his Mister Songs project in 2004, in order to fund his MA. Andy really didn't want to take out a loan, and who can argue with that? Mister Songs was so successful, he had entirely paid for his first year of study. That's Andy's drawing on the Mister Songs page, and he did all the art on this website.

The Shallows
Andy started a drum and bass band with Jennifer Denitto called The Shallows in 2001. She played drums, he played bass. Jennifer has written about the band: The Story of the Shallows, with accompanying photos and mp3s.

This was Andy's side project in 1999, a pop band formed with his friends Charley Stone, Caroline Jago and Ed Whatley. Additional information, photos and demos will be added soon.
