The first thing you’ll probable notice when listening to my music is the variety of sounds and influences. Although as a vocalist I would classify myself as a blues singer, I love to dance and bring funk, rock and pop sounds. When I was growing up, like many people I went through different phases and musical taste; from county music and Elvis at a very young age (mothers influence) to rock & roll as a young teen (friends influence) to funk and R&B (change of schools and friends) to blues (work friends). I still greatly enjoy and have an appreciation for all types of music. My first performances was as a 5 year old standing on tables in the bar my mother worked at singing Elvis songs (with full hip and leg gyration) for candy tips (and I was hooked). I started acting in junior high school and played in my first cover band in my late teens. I played in several bands singing old R&B, blues, country, 50’s music and rock.
After a few years of singing in cover bands and writing songs I released an independent CD of all original songs called “Someday, Someway” that was voted best independent release in the Nashville Scene magazine reads poll. Prompting the reviewer to write “Someday, Someway” is an eclectic blend of Southern Rock, Country Blues and Pop with a little something for everybody”. I was also voted third in the “Best Male Vocalist” category (behind Vince Gill and Garth Brooks) and third in “Best Songwriter” (behind Vince Gill and Bobby Green).
While playing clubs, I also acted in commercials and independent films, and started a theatre company. Over the years, I have produced and directed over 60 plays and written, directed and acted in several short films and three feature films. I have also acted in over 50 different productions (including one-man shows), written 12 produced plays and toured with the theatre company in 15 states.
“The explosive brass sections, bombastic lead vocals, and vocal screeching from White culminate into a sound so unlike anything else in the indie scene right now. ‘Groove Thang’ is undoubtedly one of the best independent records thus far. Inspired heavily by blues, dance, funk, rock, and pop, the performer has a particularly unique sound unto himself that has garnered him attention and accolades in the indie community. Frankly, there may not be any other artist in the scene that sounds quite like Stone White, which is an extreme rarity.” – The Independent Spotlight
