Andy White, one of the great Irish singer-songwriters, tours the world with his 12 string guitar in one hand and a book of poetry in the other. He has worked with the likes of Peter Gabriel, Van Morrison, Mary Black and Tim Finn, been the A of ALT and won Ireland’s top songwriting award.

Since his breakthrough single Religious Persuasion in 1985, Andy has produced nine internationally released albums, been dubbed Belfast’s Bob Dylan, been included in the Irish HQ Rock Hall of Fame (1998) and had Sinead O’Connor and The Frames guest on his recordings.

Andy merges pop sensibility with lyrical excellence, social commentary and acoustic guitars. His latest album, Songwriter, reflects writing collaborations with Canadians Allison Russell (Po’Girl) and Stephen Fearing (Blackie and the Rodeo Kings), Australian writer Sean Sennett and Scots producer Stuart Crichton.
