Andrew Cushin, 19, is drawing attention and capturing hearts with his heartfelt songs penned from his experience of growing up in inner city Newcastle.
Tracks like 'Waiting For The Rain', 'Where's My Family Gone', and '4.5%' are filled with emotion, meaning and purpose, sending shivers through audiences leaving them wanting more.
This kid from Newcastle has a vulnerability overlaid with a street look - but a tone of voice that fills the room and has him compared to music great, Paul Weller.
The first single release - 'It's Gonna Get Better' - is due out in January, with the second to follow a few months later, both accompanied with videos.
The self-taught musician has a packed summer of UK festivals with a tour in March 2020, cementing Cushin as one of this generation's next big artists - hot on the trail of fellow Newcastle lad Sam Fender.
