Hi I’m Andy Billington.

I’ve been writing and recording music for about 20 years now, starting around the time I purchased my first 4-track cassette recorder at University. After playing and recording with several bands my song writing culminated in my first album ‘Mountjoy Vs Monkhouse’ in 2002. This was followed up by ‘Roy’ in 2004. Both albums were very basic when it comes to instruments and production- the strength being the songs. All the drums were done on my Roland XP-50 keyboard and all instruments and vocals recorded on one SM-58 microphone

The third album was released in 2008 and was entitled ‘Ray’, following in the same album title style of the previous album. Ray is a journey with a higher quality of recording gear and production. The drums almost sound real but again the main strength is the songs and the way they fit together to carry the listener into the midst of….you tell me.

Following Ray in 2009 I did a re-vamped re-mixed re-mastered version of my debut album ‘Mountjoy Vs Monkhouse’. Its available to buy from this site and is called ‘Mountjoy Vs Monkhouse ’09’ Again the production is on a par with the ‘Ray’ album and the only song to get a complete re-vamp ‘Out There’ is now one of the stronger tracks on the album.

On February 29th 2012 I released Ray and Mountjoy (the new name for Mountjoy Vs Monkhouse) on various digital distributian sites including i-Tunes, Amazon and Spotify as well as several others, you’ll find the links on this site as well as my link to Bandcamp.

My main influences, I suppose, are Queen, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, and Blur, although I don’t suppose my music sounds much like any of them.

Thanks for reading and enjoy, Andy.
