ABOUT THE ARTIST…
Growing up in 1960s England, Peter White took interest in music while listening to the Beatles on the radio. His parents got him an acoustic guitar around age 8 and he taught himself to play while also taking lessons on the recorder, piano and later, clarinet. One day in 1967 after hearing Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” and never experiencing such sounds from his acoustic, he decided the electric guitar was to be the most important thing in his life. He eventually got one and furiously studied the works of Hendrix, Clapton and Page, but his dreams were put on hold when the guitar was burned in a fire (accidentally) set by his brother Danny. He found solace in his old acoustic guitar, having no idea that this incident, however tragic at the time, would prove a turning point in his life. He developed a love for the acoustic instrument that continues to this day. For over two decades, Peter has a reputation as one of the most versatile and prolific acoustic guitarists on the contemporary jazz landscape. Smooth jazz fans worldwide are enthralled by his spirited melodies, soulful grooves and inviting, instantly recognizable acoustic guitar tone. He’s always enjoyed finding unique ways to bring his modern sensibilities to cherished pop classics — and thanks to the smooth jazz format’s affinity for instrumental covers, two of the amazing thirteen #1 Radio & Records airplay hits he’s had through the years, “The Closer I Get To You” and “Walk On By,” have become enduring staples of the format. Pop music fans were listening to his classic acoustic guitar style even before the advent of the New Adult Contemporary and Smooth Jazz formats, most notably via his collaborations with British folk/pop singer Al Stewart. The Stewart-White partnership, which culminated with the dual live recording Rhymes in Rooms (1992), spanned over 20 years. White played on Stewart’s landmark “Year of the Cat” album, he co-wrote and performed on two of Stewart’s biggest hits, “Time Passages” and “Midnight Rocks.” In the late 1980s, White accompanied Basia on several of her acclaimed albums and in 1996, she was featured on his album Caravan of Dreams, with vocals on the popular single "Just Another Day.” With over a dozen albums, numerous musical collaborations, and his annual A Peter White Christmas shows, Peter is still going strong.
