Songwriter dreams big following the release of his third album

A songwriter from Maidenhead is hoping his latest release can turn a lifetime hobby into a dream career.

Volcano is the third album penned by Andy Davidson and the musician hopes the 21 track record will catch the attention of more established artists who will want to play his music.

The father-of-three, who juggles his career as a window specialist with private guitar tutoring and performing, began to focus on song-writing following failed attempts as part of a band.

"Nobody can leave me, it's more stable and I can make the music I want," said Andy who lives in The Farthingales.

"You have to identify the artists who might suit your music and then you approach the record companies, find out who manages them and then you market it – that's all new to me and it's certainly a learning curve."

Andy has been writing songs since he was 14 and performs regularly in pubs around Maidenhead but says he is kept firmly grounded by his wife Siobhan.

"She's my biggest critic. She says get real, you're never going to make it in the music industry, you're never going to sell your songs – but that just drives me on," joked the 52-year-old.

"I'm under no illusions, I know it’s going to be hard graft."

Volcano is available in Denmark Studios in Denmark Street and Sheargold music shop in King Street for a limited period.
