Andrew Waite is a passionate songwriter, performer, and educator who is gaining momentum after his award-winning debut release Burning through the Night in 2015. His songwriting is honest, rugged, and evocative and whether he is performing solo, or with his full six-piece band, he delivers a relentless and dynamic performance.
Burning through the Night was recorded at the Sound Mill Studio with Jon Matthews. The debut album won the 2016 Music PEI Rock Recording of the Year and was a regional finalist in the 2015 CBC Searchlight competition where it garnered the attention of CBC’s Grant Lawrence, who selected the track as one of his third-round stand-outs. “If The Band came from Charlottetown, they might sound a lot like Andrew Waite & the Firm,” stated Lawrence. “‘Someone To Hold Me’ could easily have audiences on a national scale swaying back and forth to this chorus.”
Waite is preparing his sophomore release for fall 2018 and has recently released the first single, “Out & Out,” along with his first official music video. In addition to performing, Andrew owns and operates Island Rock Camps, a successful annual summer music camp for children ages 9 to 15, now entering its fifth year.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
