About Andy

Trumpeter
London
Public liability insurance
Versatile musician across many styles: jazz trumpet player and singer, singer and guitarist in country/bluegrass band

Trained at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, following a successful touring career there I moved to the UK in 2007. I currently play in 4 main projects - Andy Watts Trio (playing Chet Baker styler 1950s Cool Jazz), Andy Watts 4 (my modern quartet, featuring my own compositions alongside reworked standards), London Afrobeat Collective (a 9-piece powerhouse playing afrobeat, soul and psychedelic funk) and TORU (a free improvised project featuring 3 trumpets and a host of guest musicians. In addition to this I play and record on a session by session basis with many UK artists and bands, including: Ferris & Sylvester, Malka, Son Of Sam, Party Up, Groove Zoo and a host of others. If you'd like me to be involved in one of your projects, please do get in touch! I'm always interested in new collaborations.

My husband and I had the pleasure of listening to the Andy Watts Trio at Hampstead Lounge & Jazz Club last year, and on the basis of that performance we hired them to play at our wedding in July. The band were punctual, and very quick to setup, very friendly and easy to get on with throughout the afternoon. Our day was unfortunately blessed with the classic English weather, and luckily Andy and the band were very flexible, able to quickly move their equipment from the outdoor space where we were hosting drinks, to the Marquee, when the skies opened and our bar area was completed drenched! The music was lovely, a great combination of classic songs and some fun versions of pop songs that we had requested. All in all, a perfect accompaniment to what was an amazing day! Highly recommended.
