POP DANCE - WAV + MP3. Odessa Mama Records from Melbourne, Australia, the label home of Tamahau and those adventurous Disco Pirates, release a home produced artist right in a classic PWL mode with Andrew Nolan's single "When I'm With You". The influence of PWL, Kylie, Jason etc was huge in Australia and sweeping out around the world.
If Andrew gets a good slice of that success he'll be a very happy artist and Odessa's David Faiman too. "When I’m With You" is available on iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify and comes with a fun Lockdown video on Youtube.
Andrew Nolan bio: After leaving College, Andrew initially worked as a disc-jockey at hotels including DeVere, Best Western, Britannia and The Queens Moat House providing entertainment for their corporate clients which included: Cooper and Lybrand and The News Corporations Sun Newspaper. In the early 90s the karaoke craze swept the UK and as the 'Karaoke Crew' the provided karaoke nights to a number of entertainment venues including the Super Bowls ran by 'Northern Leisure'.
In 1993 with fellow musician Mark Waldron they formed a disco duo called 'The Smartease', their name derived from the free and easy style. The duo were popular with audiences and soon began to perform at larger entertainment venues including 'Turners Musical Merry-Go-Round' in Northampton.
In 1994 the duo entered the Trevor George Entertainment Showcase at the Riviera International Centre in Torquay, Devon and as a result of their performance and subsequent review in 'The Stage' magazine they were contracted by the Bourne Leisure Group for a summer season at one of Europe's largest holiday parks Haven Devon Cliffs. This was a new experimental entertainment concept called 'Chaos' based on the successful UK TV show 'Don't Forget Your Toothbrush' with a mixture of music, comedy and dance.
During this time Andrew supported a number of artists including; Bucks Fizz, The Nolans, The Brotherhood of Man, The Drifters, Sheila Ferguson (The Three Degrees) and Candlewick Green.
In the summer of 1995 through an associate Des Dyer from the band Jigsaw, Andrew began to promote a re-recording of their 1970s hit 'Sky-high' on behalf of Pitstop Promotions performing the track live. The song was released and charted on subsequent occasions during 1995 on Mike Stock's (Stock, Aitken & Waterman) 'Love This Records' record label charting on the UK's Official Singles Chart at No 78, 56 and 76 for the artist known as 'Newton'.
After several more years promoting dance records on behalf of record marketing companies Andrew's next project was a male vocal trio, the project was short lived however, they recorded a number of tracks including a further re-working of the Jigsaw hit 'Sky-high' and a cover of the Real Things 'You To Me Are Everything'.
Music has never been too far away and as well as making a number of one off performances in local pubs and clubs, in the 2000s Andrew entered a Talent Competition onboard Norwegian Cruise Lines Norwegian Dawn coming second. In 2020 Andrew started working as a Playlist Curator and attracted a large number of followers on Spotify.
