Author Bio.

Andrew Brel was born in 1960 in Johannesburg growing up in South Africa during the apartheid years. After thirty years in London Andrew lives in California, working mostly as a musician, writer and producer. On occasions all at the same time.

He is the author of ‘The Emergency Bouzouki Player’ a non-fiction account of the South African War of Apartheid which has become the best selling book on the Border War on Kindle.

Brel’s second book is a novel ‘One Day in Paris’ a year in the life of Dan Blake, a former soldier who plans an attack on Paris in a Political Thriller which presciently foretold the November 13, 2015 attacks in Paris, tracing the money behind the Armaments Industry underpinning the US economy. The one percent of the one percent, the trillionaire oligarchs who control the world.

His third book, is a short story, the first from a projected series, titled Nolan Cash, Bowling Green.

Brel has two sons, twenty years apart, skis, cares about and for the homeless, practices kindness and yoga, rides bikes and horses, continues a lifelong study of ethics, religion, depression, Greek history and Africa, plays tennis, lives in the moment and in gratitude, mostly for being Greek. Andrew has been an outspoken critic of Kill-for-Fun hunters for many years and has supported many human rights causes for the past forty years. Andrew is an accomplished dog trainer and collector of stringed instruments.

He has previously;
performed thousands of gigs as a professional guitar playing musician, emigrated penniless from Johannesburg to London, owned recording studios and a record label, made and lost money in share-trading, developed property, organized meaningful fund raising concerts, lived on very little, played a lot of tennis, indulged an appetite for fine dining, married and divorced once, watched his home burn down once and flood twice, visited many great vineyards, raised Wallace of Riverbank, for 15 years the worlds finest Schnauzer, written good songs with meaning, performed with extraordinary musicians and discovered loyal friendship as life’s great gift and betrayal its greatest disappointment. Specifically the betrayal of those children failed by the shortcoming of Britain’s family-law courts.

Andrew has worked in music for over forty years, on occasions with many well known artists. More recently, since 2001, Andrew has written and produced a number of meditation and wellness music albums which can be found by googling Andrew Brel Music.
