Since bursting onto the world stage with John Lennon in the Plastic Ono Band at the "Give Peace a Chance" tour in Toronto, Alan White has developed a reputation as a musical innovator, both in his role as Yes drummer, and as a collaborator with the likes of George Harrison and Joe Cocker. As an important contributing songwriter, Alan has helped take Yes to great heights with radio hits such as 'Owner of a Lonely Heart,' 'Changes,' 'Love Will Find a Way,' 'Rhythm of Love,' 'Wondrous Stories,' 'Tempus Fugit,' 'Leave It,' 'The Calling', and 'In the Presence Of.'
His latest musical project is the group White, a brand-new vehicle for cutting-edge, progressive modern music performed with a world-class band. Kevin Currie provides soulful, touching lyrics delivered with the gravitas of Peter Gabriel and Don Henley; Steve Boyce holds down the bottom end with a dance-inducing groove and soaring vocal support; Karl Haug truly is a master guitarist, equally comfortable on delicate acoustic, driving electric and searing electric laptop slide; Geoff Downes, founding member of the Buggles & Asia (as well as time in Yes ), ties the resulting soundscape together with punchy Hammond organ work, exhilarating orchestrations, and scorching solos.
Steeped in sonic variety, White evokes an emotional response from its audience certain to build a strong word-of-mouth buzz.
