Praised by BBC 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 compared his songs to that of “Ben Folds in verse, wit and chord changes”. The award-winning, Manchester-born singer-songwriter plays both solo and with a full band, writing 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. The album won the 'Best Independent Album' award on the Alternative Friday blog in 2016 and was described as “a wonderful wonderful album” by BBC presenter Ady Dayman. Two songs from this album were also chosen for Tom Robinson's Fresh Faves.
He has a six-track EP 'Nothing Of Nothing Much' out, recorded at Pete Townshend's barge studio and has received airplay on BBC Introducing London for his new single 'I Feel Like Dancing' twice. The same song was chosen for Tom Robinson's Fresh Faves on his Fresh On The Net blog in the same week – “I Feel Like Dancing, is the result of a highly professional quality of songwriting that, given the publicity, would easily scale the charts.” – Benji Tranter (Fresh On The Net). The EP has received great reviews from publications such as GigSlutz, RockShot Magazine, Fame Music, XS NOIZE, Fresh On The Net and The Huffington Post, was Song Of The Day in Songwriting Mag and was a feature in iSing Mag. He had a sold out EP launch at St Pancras Old Church and the live recording from the night has been released as a live album, 'Live At St Pancras Old Church'.
