Jim White - Outer-Space Alternative Country


White (300)

World Cafe, March 5, 2008 - Jim White has seemingly lived multiple lives, having worked as a fashion model, a New York taxi driver, a professional surfer, a photographer, and a filmmaker. His resume doesn't end there, though: White is also an established musician with six CDs under his belt.

 Categorized as "outer-space alternative country," White's first few albums, including Wrong-Eyed Jesus and No Such Place, were all critically acclaimed. His latest, last month's Transnormal Skiperoo, finds him collaborating with many Southern artists, including the band Ollabelle and local Georgia legend Don Chambers & Goat. The disc mixes elements of bluegrass and Americana-style rock.
