I've had the great pleasure of touring many countries around the world with Andy Norman and I have seen firsthand over and over again this master at his craft. Andy is for me the very definition of what a good DJ should always be - someone who puts the music over ego and pours his heart and soul into every event, because music is to him what religion is to a preacher. Andy Norman has always been and continues to be one of my very own personal favourite DJ's because he plays from the soul, and for me that's what it's all about it.– Peyton (International Recording Artist)
