“Someone gave me a copy of your first CD to listen to, and just wanted
to say how much I enjoyed listening to it. You have such a beautiful voice and
a real talent for song writing (as I’m sure many people have told you)
I just felt I should let you know how much I appreciate it...
Look forward to hearing more of your material in the future.”
“At the Star Inn we are used to quality bands, mainly blues based,
and it was a wonderful surprise to sit and listen to a three piece who produced
an evening of quite excellent music. Your song writing is both funny and sad,
and the musicianship was superb. Reminiscent of Al Stewart mixed with David
Gray, the songs and the music lifted the whole audience and the level of applause
you received was well deserved, and rare in a pub with such strong live music
pedigree. Many thanks from myself, and I suspect most of the fairly large audience
that you commanded.”

An up-beat full band recording to get you dancing. featuring Dave Bulbeck
on bass, Andy playing acoustic guitar, keys and drums.
Often supported by ‘cut out’ electric double bass, Andy’s
music is a fascinating mixture of styles; So, is he Roy Harper ? A little bit,
but no. Is he Nick Drake ? There are allusions to it, but again no. So is he
Nick Harper ? Well again, there are hints of the same freshness, but no. Therefore,
by a simple process of elimination one might conclude that he must be Roy Drake??!!**
Well, a quick search on the internet returns a family search for any information
on a ‘Cornelius’ Roy Drake, b. 5 Apr 1825, so that’s unlikely.
And then you hear him live again and you know exactly who he is. He’s
Andy Comley. And what’s more, he’s absolutely bloody brilliant at
Write Angle Poetry club, Petersfield
...included the brilliant singer/guitarist Andy Comley, whose extraordinary
high tenor voice was one of the highlights of the evening.
