ANDREW SUTTON is a 16 year old musician hailing from the east coast city of Durban. With a pure instinct for music and a passion for performance, he has been holding the attention of crowds since the age of 6.
Currently a learner at Northwood High School, ANDREW won the Gateway To Fame competition at the tender age of 9, and after the performing bug bit this victory allowed him many opportunities to perform at places like the Gateway Barnyard, Durban ICC and Kings Park Stadium to name a few.
It didn’t take him long to spark the attention of Brad Klynsmith, the front man of award winning South African rock band Gangs of Ballet, when he watched Andrew perform in his high school musical. Klynsmith was instantly impressed and intrigued, “Some people just have it, and Andrew is one of those people. He’s talented, focused and humble. The world won’t be able to resist him.”
They met shortly afterwards and over the course of the next year Sutton and Klynsmith worked to write, record and produce an EP set to release in August 2017.
The interest around ANDREW has already warranted a headline in the Sunday Tribune as an artist to watch and having already shared a stage with the likes of Freshly Ground, Matthew Mole, Gangs of Ballet, Josh Wantie, Shortstraw and Desmond and The Tutus, it seems a sign of things to come.
