After releasing his debut Album ‘Come Alive’ last year, Albert has toured the UK with his band 4 times, played countless festivals and dipped his toe into the European touring scene. The album has been supported by BBC Radio 2 (Dermot O’Leary), BBC 6 Music (Tom Robinson) and received countless plays on local radio across the UK, no mean feat for a fully independent artist.

Recent support slots for superb acts like Seth Lakeman and Scott Matthews have further bolstered his live reputation. While his origins lie in folk and acoustic music, the sound has gradually evolved. Albert is a performer who most strongly refuses to be defined by a genre, leaping from one spot to another stylistically, all the while following his increasingly prolific muse.
Expect finger style guitar playing in the vein of Lindsay Buckingham, songwriting laced with catchy hooks, and a strong clear voice delivering the lyrical goods.
“hushed vocals and lazy, twinkling guitar lines weave together to create a little capsule of happiness.” — Max Pilley — Fresh On The Net
Alberts latest single Long Way Round is out now, accompanied by a superb music video.
