At 20 years young, it may be a bit early for Andrew Cushin to say that It’s Gonna Get Better; only time will tell, but if he keeps popping out belters like this then at least he’ll never be short of work.

He’s headlining a show at The Cluny next month, but it’s already sold out, so you’ll have to stand outside and ask people who were inside if you can touch them.

‘It’s Gonna Get Better’ is part of the two-track ‘Waiting For The Rain’ EP. Both songs were written by Andrew and produced by Sean Genocky. For the recording of ‘It’s Gonna Get Better’, Andrew borrowed Sean’s Gibson J-45, which was previously owned by Keith Richards.

Andrew’s original passion was football, and he used to be goalkeeper for the non-league side Newcastle Benfield’s youth team, which lead to the team’s coach becoming Andrew’s manager: classic.
