Blanco White started as the solo project of Londoner Josh Edwards in 2014. After studying guitar in Cádiz (Spain), and later the Andean instrument the charango in Sucre (Bolivia), Edwards’ aim was to begin bringing together elements of Andalusian and Latin American music alongside influences closer to home. The result is beyond exotic; it's otherworldly.

He released his self-produced debut EP The Wind Rose on Yucatan Records in early 2016. He recorded his second EP Colder Heavens later that same year, with producer Ian Grimble (Bear's Den, Matt Corby, Daughter), and released it last spring to critical delight. New material is expected to drop in Summer 2019.
