Biography

Active: 2000s-2010s
Country Of origin: United States of America

Contemporary singer/songwriter Matt White is a melodic vocalist with a knack for saucy, soulful adult alternative pop. Born in Englewood, NJ, White spent much of his youth in and around New York City. He became interested in classical music at a young age, taking up piano lessons as a three-year-old and taking a stab at composing his own opera several years later. White's tastes eventually broadened to rock music, and he picked up the guitar while attending college at the University of Wisconsin. Following graduation, he returned to N.Y.C. and began busking around the city, eventually graduating from street-corner performances to official shows at Joe's Pub, The Living Room, and other venues.

White is a genuine product of the online generation, and his local following combined with his considerable connections on MySpace -- over 50,000 friends -- caught the attention of Geffen Records, who signed him to a deal. An EP, Bleeker Street Stories, was released in 2006 and found a sizable digital audience. Over 100,000 copies were eventually sold, and White's full-length debut album, Best Days, followed in 2007. After touring heavily in support of the album, he began writing material for another record, relying on the piano for most of the composition process. The result, It’s the Good Crazy, was released in 2010. ~ Matt Collar~ Rovi
