    About Andy

    Andy Backhouse is a new music nut. Regularly heard interviewing new artists on the BBC Music Introducing show in London, Andy renders new bands speechless, delighting them with obscure facts and rare titbits. BBC 6 Music listeners may have heard him recently, covering for Tom Robinson alongside Jess Iszatt on the BBC Music Introducing Mixtape.

     Andy keeps a busy diary DJing and compering across the world – be it warming up for Sam Smith or The 1975, DJing to crowds in Mexico City, or this summer announcing the bands onstage for the Festival Republic stage at Leeds Festival. Closer to home, Andy runs a gig night at The Shacklewell Arms in London. With DJ’s like Hot Chip and Everything Everything making appearances, it hosts some of the most exciting new artists on the verge of breaking through.

     Andy’s previously hosted shows on Ibero 90.9 FM (think Mexico’s answer to BBC Radio 1), and put on gigs in his local youth club with a few of his friends at the tender age of 14. The local council loved it, so they asked them to put on a festival in the grounds of Richmond Castle. He’s a fairly good swimmer. He is writing this himself in the third person.
