Belfast songwriter Andy White tours the UK this November with his new album Time Is A Buffalo In The Art Of War.

The album takes up the story from where previous release The Guilty & The Innocent left off and features Andy’s son Sebastian on drums (who’ll be joining him on tour) and multi-instrumentalist Rod McVey, producer of his early albums.

“I had finished throwing things at the telly and pointed my finger at the sky. I was listening to Imagine and The War on Drugs. If you have a lot to say take all the time you want to say it.”

Andy has written with Peter Gabriel, been in a band with Tim Finn and Liam O Maonlai, played with Billy Bragg and Van Morrison and toured the world many times over in his own right as a 21st Century Troubadour. Time Is A Buffalo is his fourteenth solo album.

Support is from the wonderful Daisy Chute

Line Up

With the political edge of Billy Bragg, the romance of David Gray and the Celtic lyricism of the Waterboys, Andy is a fully paid up ‘21st Century Troubadour’ (and that’s also the title of his first book, recently published in Ireland to rave reviews).

Belfast born and raised, White has earned a global following for blending folk and pop stylings with a poet’s sensibility. Working with the great names of Irish music - Sinead O’Connor, Van Morrison - and writing with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Neil and Tim Finn, Andy has won Ireland’s top songwriting awards and toured the world many times over.

A regular in the London music scene and an award-winning singer and songwriter, Daisy has been taught and mentored by rock royalty Sir Ray Davies, featured as a vocalist on Radiohead's latest album A Moon Shaped Pool, and even got the thumbs up from Sir Paul McCartney after a performance at the Royal Albert Hall.

Delicate, like a gossamer-winged creature made out of spun gold." Tony Moore (Soho Radio, The Bedford)
