Album Notes
Andrew McCubbin is an internationally acclaimed producer, songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist. He is a
leading figure in the fertile Melbourne to Berlin musical superhighway that sees Melbourne and European based
musicians touring back and forth in various forms of collaboration.

Andrew’s music has received the accolades of “Single of the Week” and “Single of the Year” for songs such as “The
Fog Song”, “The Last Breeze” and “Blue” as well as “Album of the Week” for his debut solo album, “Dead Pilot” and
his album “Hope Addicts” on various independent radio stations in Australia.

His bands have supported acts such as M Ward (USA), Adrian Belew (David Bowie), The Creatures (UK), The Cruel
Sea, Hugo Race and Conway Savage (Bad Seeds), and he has been a part of other acts such as Black Cab, Phillipa
Nihil (Underground Lovers) and Penny Ikinger (Wet Taxis).

His music has also been used in various films, TV shows and documentaries including “Perth Uncovered” (Channel
7), “Lucky Rich” (ABC), “Surviving the Fall” (ABC), and “Little Thief” Feature Film.

On his self produced, 5th studio album, Where Once There was a Fire, McCubbin has perfected his songwriting
craft. He is a singer whose intimate breath fills our sail with songs of love and reverence. He is the bravest of
songwriters – daring to whittle a song down to its barest essence until you can only feel its heart string vibrating.

Where Once There was a Fire is journey upon a fragile ocean, mixing the intimate and the epic - from sparse acoustic
bass and piano, to the ethereal singing of Melinda Kay and McCubbin’s searing guitar, guiding us through a night of
emotional weather - a dusk to dawn journey that evokes Mark Lanegan, Leonard Cohen, The National, The Cure and Mazzy Star.

He has a singular vision of the romantic songwriter working in stripped back post rock minimalism.

“You’d be easily convinced he was actually some hidden treasure from London’s rich musical backdrop.”
4.5 Stars - Time Out Magazine

“Outstanding...truly affecting”
4 stars - Rolling Stone

4 stars - The Age (EG)

“One of the finest songwriters to emerge from Melbourne”
Inpress Magazine

"The most beautiful voice on the indie scene"
(ABC Radio)

"A fantastic, majestic and a total marvel of a record".
Sonic Wave Magazine (Spain)

"Andrew McCubbin's voice is the centrepiece - a low, slow baritone, with Melinda Kay's singing adding a touch of sweetness. It is impossible to avoid a Leonard Cohen comparison with lyrics of a standard to match the Master (yes, they're really that good)."

"It is music with a weight like embroidered cloth and a stillness that hangs far beyond its ending. "Real Slow", is a real stand-out, a gem. I could listen to it forever. If there is a better song released this year then perhaps all the fucking madness is worth it." 
Robert Arthurton (UK)
