Praised by BBC Head of Music as a “brilliant singer-songwriter,” Albert Man is an “insightful artist to watch” according to Pledge Music’s managing editor Matt Conner. He has established himself as one of the more interesting songwriters on the London gig circuit with avid support from RockShot Magazine, who compared his songs to that of “Ben Folds in verse, wit and chord changes”. The award-winning, Manchester-born singer-songwriter plays both solo and with a full band, writing melodic pop songs described by Fresh On The Net as “sweet piano-led shenanigans that come over like the lovechild of Billy Joel and Adam Levine”. Just back from The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City, he has an exciting summer of festivals ahead including Camden Rocks, Jimmy’s Farm, LakeFest, and more.
Albert released his eleven-track, self-produced album “Cheap Suit” (www.albertman.com/cheapsuit) in 2016, receiving airplay on both FUBAR Radio and BBC radio. The album won the “Best Independent Album” award on the Alternative Friday blog in 2016.
He has a new six-track EP “Nothing Of Nothing Much” (www.albertman.com/nonm) out, recorded at Pete Townshend's barge studio. The EP has received great reviews from publications such as GigSlutz, RockShot Magazine, Fame Music, XS NOIZE, Fresh On The Net and The Huffington Post. The single from the EP was played on BBC Introducing London, chosen by Tom Robinson's Fresh On The Net Fresh Faves, was Song Of The Day in Songwriting Mag and was a feature in iSing Mag. He had a sold out EP launch at St Pancras Old Church and the live recording from the night has been released as a live album, “Live At St Pancras Old Church” (www.albertman.com/live).
Albert featured on Best Of British Unsigned as “one to watch” for 2017 saying they “love Albert's sound”. This was swiftly followed up with him being chosen as their featured artist of the day with presenter Matt Graveling saying “I think Albert Man could be in with a cheeky little shout for best unsigned male in this year's Unsigned Music Awards 2017.”
