Matthew E. White

Drawing from a deep well of regional influences like Randy Newman, Allen Toussaint, and Alan Lomax, Richmond, Virginia-based singer/songwriter/arranger Matthew E. White specializes in a meticulously crafted blend of reggae-infused folk-gospel, tropicalia, swirling indie pop, and Stax-era R&B. Raised in an evangelical household by missionary parents (he spent four years in the Philippines) and nourished on the sounds of Curtis Mayfield, Caetano Veloso, the Band, and Brian Wilson, White has collaborated with like-minded artists such as Megafaun, Sharon Van Etten, the Mountain Goats, Ken Vandermark, and Justin Vernon, as well as toured and recorded as the leader of avant-garde jazz band Fight the Big Bull. The soulful and colorful Big Inner, his debut album for his own Spacebomb label, was released in 2012. Big Inner gained a cult following, showing up on several year-end critics lists, and peaking at number 19 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. White continued to work on various projects for Spacebomb -- including the eponymous 2015 debut by singer/songwriter Natalie Prass -- and then released his second solo album, Fresh Blood, in March of 2015. In 2017, White paired up with Flo Morrissey for Gentlewoman, Ruby Man, a collection of covers. ~ James Christopher Monger
