The music rolls out like a cinematic soundboard, driven by passion and emotion. Andy Lund describes his music, “as much Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits and Neil Young as it is Radiohead, Depeche Mode and Jeff Buckley.” He has been involved in the South African music scene for over 10 years as the lead singer/songwriter of Roswell Kings. Feeling that he was only expressing half of his soul with the Kings, Lund felt that he need to take the collection of acoustic songs that he had written and give them the attention they deserved and so Andy Lund & The Mission Men was born. Lund is backed by The Mission Men – Sean Ou Tim (piano/percussion), and Brydon Bolton (double bass/electric bass). Andy Lund & The Mission Men’s first full-length album, Soundtrack For A Muted Heart, was released to rave reviews by public and media alike.
