Andy White, alternative folk superstar and recipient of the Irish Songwriter of the Year award, was introduced to the southern hemisphere by Neil and Tim Finn, and made the move to Melbourne after the success of his song ‘Coz I’m Free’, written about the Olympic 400 Metres champion, Cathy Freeman.
Just back from a fun-packed northern hemisphere tour, Andy is playing a series of shows to celebrate the release of his new single ‘Tell Me Why, through Vitamin Records.
Andy has played with the great names of Irish music – Donal Lunny, Van Morrison, Mary Black; and has co-written songs with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Neil Finn. He was a member of the alternative band Supergroup ALT along with Liam O’Maonlai and Tim Finn, and his albums have been produced by John Leckie and Kim Fowley, amongst others.
Andy’s new album, written and recorded in London and Melbourne, will be released in 2004 (also through Vitamin), and Andy will be taking his 12-string and lyrics book on a national tour in February and March.
