Hailing from Sydney, Australia, but now based in the US, Andy Clockwise has become one of the most compelling artists in music today. His most recent release, 2011’s The Socialite, propelled him to a new level of success in the United States and Australia. After touring both US coasts and playing music festivals nationwide, Clockwise now has his sights set on his follow-up LP, entitled War Stories.

What you find in Andy Clockwise is a new kind of artist: unrelenting, prolific, exciting and independent.

Andy’s first taste of success came in Australia with his debut double-album Classic FM, released through Universal in 2006. Critics called the album “thrilling”, “ambitious,” and “unpredictable.” Its success eventually landed him sold out headlining tours across Australia, as well as support slots with INXS, The Black Keys, Wolfmother, The Wailers, and Hugh Cornwell of The Stranglers.

After a short stint in London, Clockwise settled into his new Los Angeles home. He became immersed in the eclectic music scene that is Los Angeles. His success Down Under translated in the United States almost immediately, as he released a string of successful EPs prior to the release of his second LP The Socialite.

In support of The Socialite, Clockwise toured the US extensively for the first time, hitting both coasts and several festivals throughout the country, including his third SXSW. Los Angeles’ famed rock radio station KROQ-FM was very supportive of the album with steady airplay and sponsored live shows, all garnering overwhelmingly positive reviews. He sold out several iconic Los Angeles venues including The Satellite (Spaceland), Hotel Cafe, and The Troubadour.
