Andy Oliveri releases his latest single, a stripped down follow up to debut EP ‘Sing Mercy’ on 5th November 2012 through Cheltenham based indie-folk label istartedthefire records. Taking the form of a beautifully crafted heavyweight 7” (limited to 250 copies) and digital download the single boasts a many-hued spectrum of lyrical themes atop a cushion of intense sentiment, maturity and captivating character.

Growing up reading the lyrics and liner notes of dusty old records have left Andy Oliveri nothing but a storyteller. Echoing the spirit of Neil Young and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, he writes simple folk songs with his heart on his sleeve and words from a bared soul. Evident in the stripped back arrangements of tracks such as ‘A Heart That Sings Can Never Bleed’ and 'She Bets On Wild Horses', the fragility in his voice and guitar allow the songs to breathe, with no overblown arrangements to mask the sentiment.

"Musically it feels like the evolution of someone who has been a stalwart within the Cheltenham music scene. Andy Oliveri has graduated from the folk scene with a completely new musical outlook and with the Mountaineers by his side there is a definite feeling that this show is a corner being turned into new musical directions."
