Geordie singer songwriter Andrew Cushin has released a sweeping acoustic track called Where’s My Family Gone. The twenty year old teamed up with Oasis legend Noel Gallagher who produced the song, played guitar on it and provided backing vocals.
The Oasis icon first discovered Andrew after hearing a demo of his single Waiting For The Rain which prompted Noel to praise his “great natural voice.” Their friendship grew, which resulted in Noel offering to produce, play guitar and singing backing vocals on the new single.
ANDREW: “I wrote Where’s My Family Gone when I was in a dark place.”. “I hadn’t been speaking to my family, or friends. I felt as though I had no outlet for the way I was feeling, and I wrote it in a little hotel room in Leeds before a gig. It started out as a darker track but the production that Noel has added to the song has pushed the track in a way that it’s now so much bigger and more uplifting. I can’t wait to play it live and see everyone’s faces when that colossal chorus hits”.
The track is accompanied by a video filmed in various locations around Newcastle and directed by Dan Hepple which you can view here.
