Jeff White at Burger Night!
September 21 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Americana/Alt-country & Outlaw Folk from the hills of western Wisconsin. Blending warm tones, reverbs, delays & vibrato, Jeff White sings of love, loss & lust with an Americana vibe, channeling the wide emotional spirit of human nature. Dramatic ballads, haunting love songs and bittersweet remembrance are staple themes.
Jeff began honing his songwriting skills working the red-eye shift as a taxi driver. Railroad conductors, heartbroken men and women after bar close and wild out-of-towners were all frequent riders who freely opened up about their personal lives. Their late night conversations were all inspirations to the genesis of his upcoming career as a songwriter and entertainer.
Jeff has toured the lower 48 from coast to coast as well as England, Scotland and Wales. Much in the vein of Johnny Cash, Jeff writes his own songs but also performs unique interpretations of other songs he admires. He’s opened up for Dr. John, Mason Jennings, members of Wilco, Joe Pug, Bernie Sanders, Hymn For Her, Bill Staines and has performed alongside Phil Vassar and Sam Amidon. Justin Vernon of Bon Iver fame was once Jeff’s lead guitar player in “Jeff White & The Front Porch”. He’s opened one of his tours at the legendary Big Top Chautauqua, has 6 albums under his belt. One album is with Charlie Parr & folk music legend Greg Brown titled, Barn Aid – Down In The Valley. His latest CD, ‘Renegade Revelations’ recently received a 4 star rating in The Netherlands on the alt-country review website, altcountry.nl.
