About Andy James
For some time he has been widely regarded as one of the U.K.’s rising stars in the world of Shred & Metal guitar. Now, Andy James has undeniably earned himself a place among the very best in the world.

Andy has specialised in teaching lead techniques for Heavy Rock and Metal. Not only can he be found mastering others’ techniques but, influenced by the likes of Andy Timmons, John Petrucci, Paul Gilbert and Adam Dutkiewicz, Andy is incredibly skilled as a songwriter, as heard on solo albums ‘In the Wake of Chaos’, ‘Machine’ and his most recent critically acclaimed self titled release, as well as his contribution to his band Sacred Mother Tongue.

It hasn’t taken long for Andy James’ name to become a leading light in the world of Metal guitar; now fully endorsed by Laney Amplification, EMG pickups and ESP Guitars, Andy can be found holding workshops and master-classes as far afield as the Los Angeles N.A.M.M. show or Frankfurt Music Messe wielding his very own Andy James custom signature ESP guitar.
