Launching his new album ‘GloryBox Mechanics’, one of Australia’s festival favourites, Andrew Winton, makes a welcome return. Conjuring up everything from sophisticated blues groans to intricate celtic-influenced melodies on his 13-stringed, double-neck, Alabama cypress tree root lap-slide beast (The Lucky 13), Andrew’s humour, musicianship, eclectic influences and styles, suburban songstories, vocal shenanigans, diversity and award-winning songs have gained fans locally and internationally over the years.
His mix of originals and bluesified unexpected covers appeals to wide audiences. Andrew is excited to be releasing his first album since the highly successful and award winning ‘Happy’ (2012). The time spent honing his performance and songwriting craft over the last few years is evident in the new album and live show. He continues to explore a range of uniquely designed lap-slide and acoustic instruments, making for a captivating and entertaining live performance. Andrew has regularly toured in Australia and internationally, and was named Australian Songwriter of the Year 2012 by the Australian Songwriter’s Association in conjunction with APRA.
