Mamas Gun

Mamas Gun is a London based band which will present within the framework of the Canarias Jazz & Más Heineken Festival their fourth album, titled Golden Days, released in 2018 on their independent label ‘Candelion’. Their first album Routes to Riches successfully broke them in Japan where they became the most played international artist on Japanese radio in 2009. They have since toured and performed all over the world, particularly broadening their profile in South East Asia in places such as South Korea, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Singapore. They have supported the likes of Level 42, Beverley Knight, Raphael Saadiq and Ben l’Oncle Soul.

The band was formed by Andy ‘AP’ Platts, the lead singer, composer & producer in 2007 and was joined by bassist ‘Professor’ Rex Horan, keyboardist Dave ‘Eighties’ Oliver, Terry ‘Spiller’ Lewis and drummer ‘Union’ Jack Pollitt after placing an ad on seeking musicians.

Born in a military hospital in Kowloon, Hong Kong, to a nomadic father who had landed in the Far East as a police recruit, Platts soaked up the musical ether that surrounded him (which included the Beatles, the Doors and ELO from his father, and a Philipino mother who played Spanish-influenced guitar), attending countless schools in the process before winning a place at Paul Mc Cartney’s Liverpool based LIPA institute. Subsequently, Platts played on Corinne Bailey Rae’s hugely successful debut album and then, in 2006, landed his own publishing deal with Zomba Music.

Before founding Mamas Gun in 2007, he collaborated with Rod ‘Thriller’ Temperton, John Oates, Jed Leiber and former Gil Scott-Heron collaborator Brian Jackson.

Since 2015 he has also been an active member of Young Gun Silver Fox alongside Shawn Lee. Keyboard player David Oliver is currently the musical director for Lisa Stansfield, working both in the studio and on the road. Terry ‘Spiller’ Lewis who also plays guitar for Lisa Stansfield, has played for Leon Ware, Lewis Taylor, The Impressions, The Valentine Brothers and Jamie Woon.
