DIRT IS ANDY SHARROCKS SECOND SOLO OUTING AFTER THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ‘WALKING IN FAMILIAR FOOTSTEPS’ WHICH FEATURED MICK TAYLOR, PAUL JONES AND JEFF AND TOMMY VEE. ANDY HAS BEEN AROUND SINCE THE DAYS OF PUNK, AND HAS CREATED A SOUND OF HIS OWN DESCRIBED BY ONE JOURNALIST AS ALT. COUNTRY WITH MENACES HE WAS DUE TO RECORD THE ALBUM IN 2008, IN MINNEAPOLIS AT JEFF AND TOMMY’S STUDIO, ROCKHOUSE, WHEN HE HAD TO CANCEL DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES. IT TOOK HIM A WHILE TO RE GROUP, BUT WITH HIS CO WRITER, THE REVERENT PAUL GREEN, HE ASSEMBLED AN OUTSTANDING BUNCH OF MUSICIANS, INCLUDING CAPTAIN BLISS AND MATT ORD FROM FELLOW AMERICANA BAND HEY NEGRITA. RECORDED LIVE IN SENSIBLE STUDIOS IN NORTH LONDON, DIRT CAPTURES AMERICANA AS IT WAS MEANT TO BE PLAYED, RAW, EMOTIONAL, GRITTY AND HONEST, WITH ANDY’S LYRICS TRANSPORTING THE LISTENER INTO THE NARRATORS SKIN. THE LAST YEAR HAS SEEN ANDY AND THE SMOKIN JACKETS SUPPORTING SUCH LEGENDS AS JOHN MAYALL AND MICK TAYLOR, AS WELL AS STEVE GIBBONS, BUDDY HITTINGTON AND THE YARDBIRDS. THIS YEAR CONTINUES WITH SUPPORTS FOR MICK TAYLOR, AND MORE WITH JOHN MAYALL
