Praised by BBC Radio Head of Music as a “brilliant singer-songwriter,” Albert Man is an “insightful artist to watch” according to Pledge Music’s managing editor Matt Conner. He has established himself as one of the more interesting songwriters on the London gig circuit with avid support from RockShot Magazine, who recently compared his songs to that of “Ben Folds in verse, wit and chord changes”.

The Manchester-born, half-German singer-songwriter plays both solo and with a full band and delivers “stunning vocals” according to the Alternative Friday blog. He writes piano-led, melodic pop songs described by Fresh On The Net as “sweet piano led shenanigans that come over like the lovechild of Billy Joel and Adam Levine”.

Albert released his eleven-track, self-produced album Cheap Suit in 2016, receiving airplay on both FUBAR Radio and BBC radio. It was described as “a wonderful wonderful album”, high praise indeed from BBC presenter Ady Dayman. Two songs from this album were also chosen for Tom Robinson's Fresh Faves on his Fresh On The Net blog, "It’s testament to the pervasive quality of his songwriting that twice now he’s been selected by our wonderful weekend voters." – Biff Roxby (Fresh On The Net). His debut four-track EP was “a bit special, to say the least” according to music blog GetIntoThis and he is set to release a brand new four-track EP, recorded at Pete Townshend's barge studio, in early 2017.

Albert was recently chosen by Best Of British Unsigned as “One to watch” saying they “love Albert's sound”.

This was swiftly followed by him being chosen as their featured artist of the day with presenter Matt Graveling saying “I think Albert Man could be in with a cheeky little shout for best unsigned male in next years Unsigned Music Award 2017.”

He has been on London Live twice and BalconyTV, has played at The O2 Priority Lounge before Muse, The Verdi Room in The Royal Albert Hall, Sofar Sounds Liverpool, Ronnie Scott’s, Jimmy's Harvest Festival, The Half Moon Putney, The Barfly, The Garage, The Bedford, Hotel Café Royal, Servant Jazz Quarters, Night and Day in Manchester, The Grand Social in Dublin, Hard Rock Cafe's 45th birthday and was a finalist in the London Coffee Music Project. Having been described as “one of the most genuine, hard working artists on the live music scene with a steely work ethic” in a recent review, he demonstrates this by the frequency at which he performs so keep your eye on his upcoming gigs list (www.albertman.com/gigs) to see when and where he’s playing next!
