Jimmy White

Biography

New Jersey-based singer/songwriter Jimmy Light spent his formative years composing lyrics and music in his head before publishing his initial song while their studies at Seton Hall School. A self-taught pianist who cites the Seaside Children’ “God Just Knows” because the musical spark that lit a fireplace in his center, White’s winning mixture of adult modern pop, nation, and gospel offers earned him several independent honours. His albums consist of One Track Center, Sure FEELS AS THOUGH Love, Hidden Photos, and Two Towns, the latter which spanned two discs and presented 25 tracks, like the solitary “Forever along with a Day time,” that was made by Gary Mallaber (Vehicle Morrison, Bruce Springsteen).
