An Englishman who accentuates his music with genial charm and musical playfulness. The result: Smooth Jazz with a spiritedness which many others in this genre lack. Born in Luton in 1954, White devoted himself to music already as a child. He learned to play several instruments, including the clarinet, trombone, violin and piano. And of course, like so many youngsters growing up during the heyday of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, he gravitated to the guitar. After his first electric guitar, which he had bought as a teenager, had burnt in a fire, however, he had to play an acoustic guitar. He made the best of it: White discovered his love for acoustic music.

At 20, he was invited to join Al Stewart’s band for a tour of England, Scotland, and the U.S. in 1975. This was the beginning of a 20 year association. He worked with Stewart as a pianist at first, and later also as a guitarist, composer and co-producer. In 1979 both moved to Los Angeles, formed the band “Shot in the Dark” and a record label called Lobster Music. In 1990 White published his first solo CD “Reveillez-Vous”. The album soon became a favourite among contemporary jazz radio stations. 12 successful albums later, White released his latest solo recording “Here We Go” (2012).
