Andre White - Guitar and Vocals

A native of Jamaica, songwriter, and dynamic performer, Andre White has developed a vocal style which captures many elements of the 1970ís heyday of roots reggae in Jamaica.  With lyrical contributions that are geared toward determination, truth, and humanity, Andre Nicholas captivates his audiences with his stage presence, putting every ounce of his small stature into his singing.  Musical influences include Winston  Rodney (Burning Spear), Max Romeo, Jacob Miller, Bob Marley,  David Hinds (Steel Pulse) and many others.

After leaving his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica in 1993 to pursue a degree at St. Lawrence University (where he dominated NCAA Division III soccer with his goal-scoring), Andre White teamed up with Brendan DeMelle and Peyton Tochterman to form Zion Express- a powerful, all-original, roots rock reggae band which performed extensively in the upstate New York college circuit.  Andre moved to Washington DC after obtaining his degree from SLU and linked up with drummer Alfred Adams. Andre also holds a Masters in Informaton Technology from Johns Hopkins University and formed the band with Brendan DeMelle and Alfred Adams in 2000.
