Biography

Andrew White is a troubadour.  He is one of those rare artists who can skilfully combine brilliant finger-style guitar work with a compelling story in lyric and deliver them both in an engaging live performance.

 Andrew started his career busking on the streets of Auckland, New Zealand.

 In 1984 he released his debut, self-produced album, Conversations, a collection of introspective acoustic guitar tunes with a minimalistic production approach. This haunting album was immediately signed by Narada Records in the US and garnered worldwide distribution. Narada then released Islands, an instrumental collaboration with Grammy-nominated artist David Arkenstone, which reached the top 30 on the US Billboard Charts.

Over the past two decades Andrew has toured and collaborated with artists as diverse as, Clannad, The Corrs, Michelle Shocked, Tommy Emmanuel, John Renbourne, John Martyn, Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads), Janis Ian, Mary Black, Eddie Reader, Bruce Guthro, Andy McKee, The Indigo Girls, Taj Mahal, Cappercaille, Otmar Liebert, Juan Martin, Tom Paxton, Seals and Crofts, Shriekback, Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark, Brendan Power, Brian Ritchie ( Violent Femmes), Paul Brady, Brian Kennedy, Roy Harper, Brendan Power, The Strawbs and others.

He has recorded thirteen albums with Linn records, Vertical Records, Narada Records, Candyrat Records, CBC Canada, White Cloud/Naxos records, Warner, and also appears on numerous sampler CD’s from these labels. Andrew has also endorsed guitar giants such as Washburn, Stonebridge, Maton and Yamaha. After taking some years off from touring to write, Andrew returns to the international stage with a new songbook album, complete with guitar tablature, and as an author. His first book, a thirty chapter mystery adventure story for children- ‘The mystery of the Cloak and crown’ to be published later in 2015. An Audio book narrated by Andrew and also featuring his music will also be available.
