Albert Man Short Info

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 piano-led, 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”.

Albert released his eleven-track, self-produced album Cheap Suit 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.

His six-track EP “Nothing Of Nothing Much” was released in 2017 and was 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, Huffington Post. The single from the EP was played on BBC Introducing London twice, was Song Of The Day in Songwriting Mag and was a feature in iSing Mag. Two songs from the EP have also been chosen by Tom Robinson's Fresh On The Net Fresh Faves. He had a sold out EP launch at St Pancras Old Church and was interviewed by Head of Music at BBC Essex the following week after the launch party.

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 next years Unsigned Music Awards 2017.”

He has been on London Live twice and BalconyTV, has played at The O2 Priority Lounge before Muse, The Verdi Room in The Royal Albert Hall, Sofar Sounds Liverpool, The Borderline supporting HamsandwicH, Ronnie Scott’s, Jimmy's Harvest Festival, The Half Moon Putney, The Barfly, The Garage, The Bedford, Hotel Café Royal, The Hospital Club, Library, Aloft Live, Servant Jazz Quarters, Night and Day in Manchester, The Grand Social in Dublin, Hard Rock Cafe's 45th birthday and was a finalist in the London Coffee Music Project to name a few.

He has recently returned from Dublin after taking part in the annual Dublin Bowie Festival where he played at multiple venues and shows including the last night of the festival, Bowie Raw, at the Grand Social as part of the line-up which included Bowie-collaborator and guitarist Gerry Leonard.

Having been described as “one of the most genuine, hard working artists on the live music scene with a steely work ethic”, he demonstrates this by the frequency at which he performs so keep your eye on his upcoming gigs list, www.albertman.com/gigs, to see when and where he’s playing next.
