About Jim White

A singer and songwriter who blends American musical traditions with a surreal wit and the literary sensibilities of Southern gothic authors, Jim White has followed a singular creative path since emerging in the alternative music community of the mid-'90s. While his melodies are rooted in elements of country and gospel, he pushes them into an atmospheric direction, twisting the ingredients with layered instrumentation and electronics, and the mild twang of his voice gives his lyrics a suitable air of mystery. White won critical acclaim and a cult following with his debut album, 1997's Wrong-Eyed Jesus! (The Mysterious Tale of How I Shouted), 2004's Drill a Hole in That Substrate and Tell Me What You See added inventive production and some notable guest stars to his mix, and 2020's Misfit's Jubilee was a raucous and stripped-down set that included the topical "The Divided States of America."
