Andrew London has spent 40 years carving a niche in the New Zealand music scene as a guitarist and vocalist in rock bands, jazz trios, stage shows and as a soloist, appearing regularly on Nationwide television, and on National Radio. The Andrew London trio have collectively amassed a back catalogue of over 20 recorded albums, garnering Tui nominations and rave reviews in Downbeat USA, the World’s most widely read jazz magazine.

His musical collaborations Hot Club Sandwich,The Cattlestops, and The Andrew London trio have collectively amassed a back catalogue of over 20 recorded albums, garnering Tui nominations and rave reviews in Downbeat USA, the World’s most widely read jazz magazine.
