Andy Piercy and David Clifton have been writing and recording together for over twenty years. They first met whilst working on the pre-production for an EMI and Warner Chappell album project by Steve Booker, which Andy was co-producing.
David and Andy both have a long history and background in the British music industry. Andy was lead singer and songwriter for the rock band After The Fire, and toured with Queen, ELO and Van Halen as well as having a top 5 hit in the USA with ‘Der Kommissar ‘(Don’t Turn Around) in the 80’s. Andy then went on to produce artists such as Nine Below Zero, Gary Numann, and T’Pau. His recent production work has been for sacred music artists as diverse as Rita Springer, Kim Hill, Delirious, Martin Chalk, Graham Kendrick and Matt Redman. David was signed to Virgin Records with the indie band Sensible Jerseys who were championed by John Peel before going on to tour and record with some of the UK’s most respected artists, including Tanita Tikaram, Mary Coughlan, Julia Fordham and Steve Booker. Over the years his session recording work has encompassed many musical genres, including Madness, Mickey Hart, Pele, Paul Heaton (Beautiful South), Haley Westenra, Helen Watson, Delirious (Cutting Edge 1), Matt Redman, Robin Mark, Graham Kendrick and Kim Hill.
Their songwriting has mostly been in the sacred music arena; they were both on the music team at Holy Trinity Brompton, London where they helped develop the contemporary and renewal worship, and trained new church musicians and songwriters. Their own songwriting is often been praised for its strong use of scripture, Biblical texts and sound theology, within an accessible musical style that suits modern congregational singing.
