2 x Golden Guitar Winner, Andrew Swift has gone from strength to strength since finding his feet in the Australian country music scene as a Toyota Starmaker grand-finalist in 2017. With his debut country album, ’Call Out For The Cavalry' debuting at #1 on the ARIA Australian Country Charts, the Matt Fell produced record saw 5 singles lifted for release including ‘Runaway Train’, Fire & Ice (feat. Catherine Britt) & King of the Sky.
At the 2019 Golden Guitar Awards, the country music industry recognised Swifts relentless hard work and saw him take home the awards for Qantas New Talent of the Year & Alternative Country Album of the Year.
Living out of what could be Australia’s smallest caravan, Swift threw in his day job to tour full time in support of his latest release and hasn’t stopped since. Between his tours with the Wolfe Brothers, Felicity Urquhart, Shannon Noll, numerous festival appearances & Swift’s own shows including his ‘Caravan Park Country Music Showcase’ tour, he’s often referred to as one the hardest working country artists in Australia. In fact, his constant visits to Gundagai saw him named as the official ambassador of the iconic Dog on The Tuckerbox in 2019.
Returning to work with Matt Fell at Love HZ studios, Swift recently started recording his new album after signing with ABC Music. The first two singles, ’Never Meant To Break Your Heart’ & 'Right On Down' reached #4 & #9 on the Country Music National AirPlay chart, making it 4 top 10 singles for Swift in the last 3 years.
Swift channelled his awkward teenage self to write 'Head Full Of Honey' reminiscing on not having the nerve to act on his crush at the time.
