Since first coming to fame as drummer and songwriter for Razorlight, Andy Burrows has quietly become one of the most in demand people in rock’n’roll and has so far clocked up an incredible 150 million plus Spotify plays of songs he has composed.
Since leaving Razorlight having co-written their biggest hit, America, Burrows has made four successful solo records plus a collaborative album, Funny Looking Angels (2011) with Editors frontman, Tom Smith. He co-wrote the BAFTA nominated soundtrack to the 2012 Channel 4 film The Snowman and the Snowdog (with composer Ilan Eshkeri) and co-produced the soundtrack to the 2016 movie David Brent: Life on the Road (in which he also starred as the drummer in Brent’s band Foregone Conclusion) and is collaborating with Ricky Gervais on a new series for Netflix.
He has additionally contributed to records by We Are Scientists, Jamie Lawson and Tom Odell (co-writing tracks on all three of his albums so far).
Burrows’ collaboration with the #1 best selling author Matt Haig, Reasons To Stay Alive, came about after the pair forged a friendship in the most modern of ways, via Twitter. They went on to spend the best part of a year passing ideas back and forth to create a stunning collection of songs loosely inspired by Haig’s much loved books, including Reasons to Stay Alive and How to Stop Time, with words by Haig and music by Burrows.
