About Ward White

Ward White has the writing style of Hank Williams with the pop sense of The Beatles and the laid back presentation of Bob Dylan. In 1998 Ward White put out his debut release, Artificial Light with a stellar cast of New York music veterans. One of the musicians he teamed up with was Phoebe Summersquash a drummer who has played with Small Factory, The Godrays and Brilliantine. On bass and guitar was Alex Kemp who was also a member of Small Factory and The Godrays. On the album you will also find Jason Frangos the cellist who was a past member of Cornelius and 888. The recording was overseen by producers Aaron Keene who has worked with A.D. and The Veronica Lodge, Greg Griffith who has worked with vitapup and Benna, and Ray Martin known for his work with Marcy Playground, VPN, and Into Another. Ward White could be found performing in the New York City area, in 1999, with drummer Noah Simon and bassist Aaron Keane. 1999 also found Ward White back in the studio working on his follow-up release, Medicine. This one warns, Ward White, "sounds like Graham Parsons meets Radiohead". ~ Larry Belanger
