WHITEY – LOST SUMMER (Indie/Alternative – UK)

Whitey

UK-born Berlin-based multi-instrumentalist Whitey (real name Nathan Joseph White) is a totally self-taught artist who sings, programs, plays guitar, keys, bass and drums. Adept at twisting genre boundaries, he has always been ahead of the curve, experimenting tirelessly with different techniques and styles.

Whitey’s new full-length album, called Lost Summer, was released independently via Bandcamp last May 19th “after several months of terrible record deal offers, talking to tasteless arrogant A&R’s and knocking on closed doors” (Whitey’s words). Released with no record label support, no press agent, no advertising budget, it will rely on word-of-mouth, radio stations and other media to spread to the masses…

If you like what you hear, check out an old favourite “Stay on the Outside”, featured on Kitsuné Maison Compilation 4 back in 2007 and later included in Whitey’s own compilation of rareties and B-sides Great Shakes Volume 2.

WHITEY – CANNED LAUGHTER (Indie/Electro/Alt – UK)

Whitey is an ongoing solo project by N.J Whitey, a totally self-taught artist who sings, programs, plays guitar, keys, bass and drums. This UK-born Berlin-based music genius defies genre boundaries with songs that swing wildly between styles.  Although still unsigned, he has released plenty of records under a variety of names and managed to break through to mainstream daytime radio in the U.S and elsewhere.

In 2004, he released The Light at the End of the Tunnel is a Train, which was greeted at the time as a critical triumph. His next album, Great Shakes, was leaked onto the internet and, as a consequence, never got an official release. Some time later the track “Stay on the Outside” was featured on Kitsuné Maison Compilation 4 and earned Whitey further praise but his third album, which was planned for 2008, was delayed and then never released.

Now the wait has been long but there’s finally some good news! Whitey’s brand new album, Canned Laughter, is out since April 1st 2010 and it’s brilliant. Released with no record label support, no press agent, no advertising budget, it will have to rely on word-of-mouth, bloggers, radio stations and other media to spread to the masses..
