Spawned in the sprawling urban metropolis of York, Viewer is an electro-indie two piece comprising of Tim Wright (composer & producer) and Andy Johnson (vocalist & lyricist).
The pair met in their local hostelry when both were pursuing separate projects. Years on and several pints down the line, they decided to work on a track together. Inspired by the result, they recorded a further song and were signed to Stopstart records on the strength of these two offerings. They have since been writing new material and honing their style and sound.
Tim Wright has been releasing his inimitable brand of electronic music since the early 1990s. Under his own name and such pseudonyms as Tube Jerk, Germ and Pin he has attracted the support of some of the key labels in the field, with 12″ and album releases on Mute, Tresor, Soul Jazz and PIAS amongst others. He has remixed artists as diverse as the Ceramic Hobs, Laurent Garnier and Goldfrapp and performed live extensively throughout Europe and in the US, Australia and Japan.
Andy Johnson has fronted a number of bands since the mid 1990s and played at various venues around the UK. His witty kitchen-sink commentary delivered in a style described as ‘reminiscent of Lou Reed’s junkie punk drawl’ [: Here Magazine] both compliments and contrasts Tim’s bass-heavy backdrop, creating a unique and irresistible dance floor sound.
