BONUS - Andy Crofts talks The Resistance - his artwork to raise money for War Child - PLUS upcoming tour...
Hear my exclusive chat with musician Andy Crofts from the Paul Weller Band just hours ahead of their support slot with Madness at London's Royal Albert Hall and days before they head out on tour across England & Scotland.
We also chat about the beautiful abstract painting that he has created, in light of the crisis in Ukraine, and the auction to raise money for War Child.
Entitled, The Resistance, the piece is painted on a 1.5m x 1m framed canvas using acrylic and draws on the Ukrainian flag as inspiration.
Growing up as an only child in Northampton, Andy was drawn into his own imagination and has also been painting and creating art his whole life.
Now, the musician has set up an online auction for ‘The Resistance’ and is encouraging art lovers who connect with the piece to throw their support behind it.
All proceeds will go to War Child’s work with children affected by recent events in Ukraine.
