Andy Baylor

2023 Artists

His blues is poetry of the back verandah kind, citing John Lee Hooker above John Donne, with a come-as-you-are feel set to the rhythm of the Melbourne suburbs.” – Michael Dwyer, The Age

Highly respected and influential Australian musician Andy Baylor known for his multi-instrumental skills, song-writing and versatility. Described as Australia’s “King of Roots”, Andy was inspired by the Cajun music of Louisiana during a trip to the USA in the 80’s and set about mixing his own Southern blues, jazz, country and Cajun fiddle with bar-room music to create his own individual voice that can only described as Australiana Roots.
