One of the many surprising things about Andy
White is that the Belfast-born Irish singer-songwriter has been
keeping famous company throughout his career while still very much
remaining his own man. He has written with English world music pioneer
Peter Gabriel, Neil Finn of Crowded House and Italian star Edoardo
Bennato and won the Hot Press Songwriter of the Year award. His
bitingly topical debut single 'Religious Persuasion' appeared in
1985 on the famed Stiff label. Andy went on to be managed by Peter
Jenner who discovered Pink Floyd and guided The Clash's rise to
fame, but is now best known for his association with modern-day
protest singer Billy Bragg.
Andy has established himself as a performer
of persistent passion who has also supported such luminaries as
Van Morrison, Clannad, Lloyd Cole and Mary Black. Andy isn't stuck
to the solo gig though, and he can also be found touring with his
fiery Celtic Ono Band.
