Andrew York presents a unique persona in the world of the guitar. He is well-known to classical guitarists through the recordings of his compositions by John Williams, Christopher Parkening and himself; and in the fingerstyle world for his inclusion on the extremely popular Windham Hill Records "Guitar Sampler". Few guitarists cross over stylistic boundaries with such authority and depth of writing and playing. Andrew`s second CD, " Denouncement," on GSP Recordings, won the 1994 Guitar Player reader`s poll for best classical guitar album. Rhino Records release "Legends of Guitar- Classical," featuring such luminaries as Segovia, Julian Bream and Los Romeros, also included Andrew playing his composition Sunburst. Andrew York is also a member of the world-renowned Los Angeles Guitar Quartet. The quartet also performs and records Andrew York`s compositions written specifically for the group.
