7:30pm Andy McGarvie


7:30pm Andy McGarvie
Guitar led grooves are set to a back drop of Hammond organ and funky bass hooks, punctuated by trademark riffs and licks from McGarvie’s six-string.

As a lyricist McGarvie’s words are sparse and carefully chosen, sometimes finding it easier to let his guitar do the talking. When it comes to his technical ability on guitar he stands alone, if on occasion he is accused of being overly indulgent it’s only because he can.
However, to assume that these are songs for the musical elite is a mistake.

Introspective yet inclusive, McGarvie’s music will find resonance with both the music aficionados and the casual listener. His songs can be soft and disarming at times, at others, raucous and exciting; The Blues Will Get Me Through will warm the heart and move the feet.

The EP comes as a culmination of a lifetime of dedication to the craft of song writing and making a living as a journeyman musician. McGarvie cut his teeth playing Melbourne’s vibrant music scene, playing numerous bars under a variety of guises. Predominantly as a lead guitarist McGarvie featured in acts including Effigy of Now, The Matt Walters Band, Nicholas Roy, The Gabriel Lynch Band and Bobby Flynn.

It is under his own moniker, however, that McGarvie really honed his craft, finding the liberty to truly express himself. “The freedom to take the songs anywhere I want is something I love” he explains.
This freedom is never more evident than during one of his live performances. Old songs take new form and McGarvie cuts a captivating figure on stage; a wild man on guitar with a vocal delivery that shifts between a velveteen croon and snarling war cry.

After growing up under his Dad’s DJ booth, in the spit and sawdust nightclubs of the ’90s, Si Connelly emerged with a vast pallet of influences and a suitcase of adrenaline-fuelled postcards.
After years on the underground UK live scene, Brighton based Singer-Songwriter Si Connelly released his debut album ‘Youth, War & Joy’ in 2016 on the West One Music Label.
While living out of his car, Si begged, stole and borrowed, Brit-Award-winning Produced Chris Potter (The Verve, Blur, The Rolling Stones) and Grammy-Award Winning Produced Dom Morley (Adele, Amy Winehouse) to create his debut album. The albums lead track ‘Hurt You’ featured on hit ITV drama Monroe and was also picked up by Coldplay, who backed Si’s vocal performance.
2017 saw the release of his second album ‘Eject’ featuring a massive 24 tracks, followed by 2018’s 13 Ghosts EP. Eject and 13 Ghosts were the first albums released on Si’s own label Dead Rabbit.
2019, saw the release of ‘Dreamers’, Si’s first single taken from his forthcoming self-produced third album ‘Change’. ‘Change’ is scheduled for release on 17th July 2020, although many singles are set to be released throughout 2019. ‘Change’ will also feature the 6 Music & BBC Introducing backed single ‘Lion House’.
Si’s live performances have quickly been gaining him a loyal following and his audiences are growing at every show.
BBC Introducing & Observer have both given Si their stamp of approval by labeling him, “A serious one to watch in 2020”.
