Multi award-winning songwriter and lap slide specialist Andrew Winton brings something unique to the blues/roots/nu-folk genre, in his innovative and captivating display of acoustic music, suburban songstories and vocal mayhem! Andrew is known for his on-stage warmth, humour, and stellar musicianship. He is also recognised for his diverse musical styles with influences ranging through blues & roots, folk, jazz, gospel, funk & country/bluegrass. Andrew continues to attract audiences overseas and at home with his incredible lap slide playing and increasing array of unique lap slide instruments designed for him by makers around the world. Andrew recently completed a major Australian tour of over 70 shows in three months to celebrate the 2012 release of his fourth studio album, Happy.

"...he is a sublime stylist who is aware of the masters and can play effortlessly in a wide range of acoustic styles...[Surface Tension] is an album of great gentleness and sensitivity." Sydney Morning Herald

"Winton's music is a vague cross between John Butler and Harry Manx. However, Winton is a wizard on the lap-steel, particularly the 'Wintonbeast'...and it's his mastery of this instrument and the way in which he applies it, that lifts him clear of labels..." Rhythms Magazine

"Lyrically strong & melodically rich, Andrew's playing is superb..." PBSfm
