Andy Alston

Quiet onstage and off, Andy joined Del Amitri before the recording of their second album, Waking Hours, which was released in 1990. (This is often considered to be Del Amiti’s first “real” album, as they changed labels from Chrysalis to A&M between the two.) He plays a variety of instruments, ranging from accordian to keyboard, and has been seen singing backup a time or two. The band often refers to Andy as “the doc”, due to the fact that he is the only band member with a PhD. Andy has two children that are about 4 years apart.
