Belfast troubadour Andy White is back with a fantastic new album This Garden is Only Temporary on January 28, 2022, with January UK tour dates.
Andy met LA producer Steve Dierkens whilst he was touring Canada and the two hit it off immediately. The songs on the album were created in Calgary, Melbourne, and Belfast and feature Andy’s long-time collaborator Rod McVey on keys and Kent Macrae on drums, resulting in an impressive album, full of soaring guitars and killer melodies.
“Arriving. Meeting. Home. Leaving. Tiny movements we make on a planet spinning around the sun. This garden is only temporary.” - Andy White
Andy White’s first EP Religious Persuasion and 1986 debut album Rave on Andy White kick-started a career which includes twenty albums, two books of poetry and a novel. Writing with Peter Gabriel, forming ALT with Tim Finn and Liam Ó Maonlaí, touring the world many times over with his acoustic guitar, and winning Ireland’s top music awards, Andy has lived in Belfast, Dublin, Switzerland and, currently, Melbourne.
During the 264-day lockdown Andy live-streamed, wrote and recorded, regularly releasing tracks on Bandcamp and clips on his Youtube channel. These included live performances of the albums Kiss The Big Stone and Himself, lockdown anthem Stay at Home, a song written to support a favourite Italian club, Empty Streets of Florence, a track for the Jackie Leven tribute album The Wanderer, and a second volume of rarities, Rarer—as well as a video series Two Guys Not Touring with his son Sebastian, who will join him on drums for the UK tour.
