“Jim White’s songs are the tales of a man who has turned his life into a story and who’s life has risen to the challenge.”
* GQ Magazine
Raised in Pensacola, Florida, a town crushed between the church and heroin, Jim’s songs reach deep into the underbelly of the South. One time Pentacostal, fashion model, New York taxi driver, drifter, pro-surfer, photographer, film-maker, his music is the conduit for all the stories he collected along the way. His previous albums ‘Wrong-Eyed Jesus’ , ‘No Such Place’  and ‘Drill a Hole in That Substrate…’  were acclaimed as masterpieces of ‘outer space alt.country’ and established Jim as a phenomenal maverick talent.
Jim also starred in the BBC4 film ‘Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus’, an award-winning road-movie exploring Southern culture through its music and stories. Now living in an old farmhouse in the backwoods of Georgia, Jim White may have finally reached a place called home, but his other search, for what he calls ‘the gold tooth in God’s crooked smile’ continues in this new set of backyard tales.
His live shows have been described as off-beat, blending his playlist with open discussion with the audience and anecdotes derived from his own life experiences, all of which is typically humorous and insightful.
