Press Release:

Dream-pop folk artist John White will be touring New Zealand next month to promote his new album "The Inkadies", to be released on Monkey Records on October 18th. As a follow up to "Balloon Adventure"(2000) and "Mogwash"(2003), "The Inkadies" might be described as the third instalment of tales from a delicate otherland where little creatures called Inkadies come to save the day.

The album was recorded in Madison, Wisconsin by friend and fellow singer/songwriter, Tom Hanson. Gathering guest musician's from Madison's lush music scene, the album boasts chiming harmonies and dripping Synth accompaniments underneath John's dreamily relaxed vocals.

John White is also the frontman for seminal Dunedin fuzz-pop band Mėstar and has toured extensively with now defunct avante-popsters Cloudboy.
