Music Nova Scotia artist Andrew White is a great story teller. He draws you into his music with lyrics that are both meaningful and at times, deeply personal. In Walk in Light, you walk in Andrew’s shoes for a moment and come out on the other side better for it.” - Rob Poland, Candyrat Records

Andrew started his career busking on the streets of Auckland, New Zealand, but soon began his meteoric rise. In 1984, he released his first album, Conversations, and was immediately signed by the new-age label Narada Records in the US. Narada Records then released Islands, an instrumental collaboration withGrammy-nominated artist David Arkenstone, which reached the top 30 on the US Billboard Charts.
Following a live broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland, he was signed by UK label Linn Records and recorded Guitarra Celtica, a stunning instrumental album featuring 16 hauntingly beautiful original tracks. This was quickly followed with Pray For Rain, Andrew's first vocal album released on the independent Scottish label Vertical Records.
In January of 2005, he released Andrew White - Live, recorded byCBC Radio Canada, broadcast to over 2-million people, and was nominated for a Canadian East Coast Music Award. Over 1 million albums, including Andrew's own compositions, have been sold worldwide. Andrew's finger-style guitar work is technically brilliant yet possesses a highly melodic structure. He is one of the few who combines international class guitar playing with skilfully crafted and beautiful songs. A humble and gifted musician, Andrew's music will take you on a spiritual journey over the mountains of his soul and rivers through it.
