Singer, Songwriter, Soul Adventurer
There’s something about the music one hears when in “the islands” it can be the perfect soundtrack to watching the waves roll in, drink in hand, sunburned feet buried in the cool sand…it’s calming, fun, and carefree. Jeff White is the purveyor of such music. It is one of life’s greatest ironies that a young man who has been both struck by lightning and bitten by a shark can produce such dulcet tones and irie vibes.
White has been a veritable beach bum since his birth in Florida where he grew up in a small island community. The island experience is imbued in his soul and it is conspicuous in his music. Proficient on bass, guitar, keys, drums and percussion, White credits such influences as Sublime, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, Sam Cooke, Jack Johnson, Barrington Levy and Paul Simon. No neophyte to touring, he has delighted audiences with his brand of “acoustic roots soul” in 47 U.S. states, several Central and South American countries and many Caribbean islands including St. Thomas where he is now based.
As a multi-instrumentalists Jeff uses a Boss Loop station to record tracks on the fly and layer beats and grooves seamlessly to create a full sound for a one man show
