"some of his best work yet" Jacquie Walters, Muzic.net.nz and " could easily be a household name before the end of 2019" Jussrussradio "With Origins, he proved his versatility as an artist, but with Set Me Free, he proved the heights of his talent" AnRFactory.
Following the release of the album Origins (2018) and Traveller in the Sky (2019) Andrew Masseurs is proud to release his first single She’s so Nasty, first single from the upcoming album Fuzz Bomb due out Oct 1 2020.
“ Moving into a new decade I decided to create an album that is alive, different and relating to the times and trials we are currently facing. Using the title Fuzz (distorted guitars) and Bomb (explosion) as inspiration Ive created tracks that are big, strong and purposeful. I’ve really enjoyed making this album and I hope it comes through in the songs.
I will be releasing three single ep’s over the next month in Anticipation of the
upcoming album release. She’s so Nasty, Stand up and Hearts on Fire.
Look out for songs from the Traveller in the Sky / Fuzz bomb writing sessions and acoustic renditions of Andrew Masseurs tunes and ammp.
