Andrew Winton

"The first thing you should know about Andrew Winton is that he's a seriously good guitarist... In company with some of Australia's finest singer-songwriters, most notably Jeff Lang, Winton uses a blues base for many of his creations, slipping into jazz grooves, even gospel mode, here and there." Rhythms Magazine Andrew is an independent solo artist combining acoustic guitar, lap slide, dobro and seven-string lap guitar/bass (the Wintonbeast), with hollers and stomps to provide an engaging and authentic performance. Andrew's sound has been likened to a cross between Ben Harper, Sting, Kelly-Joe Phelps and Harry Manx. His performances are driven by infectious rhythms, stunning slide, bluesy vocals, quirky lyrics and storytelling. 2006 saw Andrew tour Australia for three months, play at numerous festivals, events and radio broadcasts, and take out first place in the Folk/Acoustic category of the Australian Songwriter's Association awards (as well as the award for best live performance at the awards night!). Andrew was a feature artist on ABC Radio National's Music Deli program, and placed in the top 10 in the instrumental category of the MusicOz awards. He has just been nominated for a West Australian Music Industry award for best blues/roots artist. His third album The Decompression Chamber (2006) received critical acclaim. This is a man mad about slide guitars who will do just about anything to get them on stage!
