Today marks the debut of Andy Smythe‘s latest musical endeavour, the mesmerising album ‘Poetry in Exile.’ With thirteen meticulously crafted compositions, Andy showcases his talents as a musician, drawing inspiration from legendary songwriters like Lennon/McCartney, Nick Drake, and Rufus Wainwright.

Hot on the heels of Andy’s ‘Out Of My Mind’ single, ‘Poetry in Exile’ is released today.

‘Poetry in Exile’ delves into themes of personal struggle and the power of music in a world fraught with political turmoil. Through poignant tracks like ‘Dear Landlord’, ‘Prodigal Son’, ‘Leaves to Burn’, and ‘No Pasaran’, Andy champions the voices of underdogs and outsiders, inviting listeners into a world of introspection and empathy.

Andy Smythe Musician

The album’s musical landscape is diverse and enchanting, almost a fusion of The Verve and The Beatles, and features lush strings, soulful horns, and evocative piano arrangements. With his distinct voice and masterful musicianship, Andy also promises a captivating live experience during his upcoming tour later in the year.

TIG heartily recommends a listen to Andy Smythe’s ‘Poetry in Exile’ and to be on the lookout for an exclusive interview with the man himself in the not too distant future.
