Andy Muscat – Mercedes Benz Mixed Tape Featured Artist
July 26, 2013
Andy Muscat, a singer songwriter from Portsmouth that I photographed a few months back has been featured on this Summers Mercedes Benz Mixed Tape.
The Mixed Tape is a selection of tracks compiled every eight weeks by MB! an online magazine by Mercedes Benz that showcases arts, music, fashion and pop culture from around the world. This platform is great exposure for Andy right now. Mercedes uses the Mixed Tape as a selection pool for music that could be considered for future adverts which, if chosen, would see considerable investment in Andy as well as wide commercial distribution by a global brand.
The track from Andy that MB! have included on the Mixed Tape Compilation is ‘You Pull Me Through’ and here’s what they had to say…
Sunny, straightforward and spine-tingling: For prime retro soul with a touch of down-to-earth indie, look no further than Portsmouth’s Andy Muscat whose heartfelt – and tugging-at-the-heart strings – anthem catapults the young crooner straight into our shortlist of favourites. Debuting at his hometown’s Guildhall at the tender age of sixteen, Andy soon went on to wow critics and crowds at London’s seminal 100 Club or on record with his debut EP and two UK Unsigned no. 1 accolades. Now backed by two excellent musicians who bolster Andy’s big sound with Motown-esque grooves and backing vocals, the charming crooner wraps us around his little finger with catchy tunes, jangly guitars – and wisdom beyond his young years.
