Joseph Allen White is a new breed of singer/songwriter, with “new” being the imperative word. Remarkably, White took his first guitar lesson in March of 2008, wrote his first song in December of 2009, released his debut album ‘Things Change’ in January 2011, performs live, and continues to write and record new music.
White is also a living, breathing example of how sometimes the greatest moments in life come out of the most bitter of personal circumstances. In July 2009, three days before his 8-year wedding-anniversary, Joseph found out that his wife had been having an affair. In a moment, his marriage was over and his life was going to take on an entirely new direction. He poured every spare moment into improving his guitar skills, “hoping” that one day he’d be able to play and sing at the same time; and it wasn’t very long before he was doing just that. He would write his first song only 4 months later.
White has spent the last 3 years building a solid reputation in Central Florida as a performing singer/songwriter, which has included two showcases at the Florida Music Festival as well as an invitation to perform his songs for Music Row Publishers at the World Famous Bluebird Café in Nashville.
Shortly after the release of ‘Things Change’, White released an iTunes single titled ‘First Day of My Life’ and it not only summed up his journey, it also sparked the beginning of what would become his second studio album: ‘Anywhere is Fine.’
There are plenty of things to be excited about for Joseph Allen White these days. He’s a new father of his one-year old son, Payton, and he’s engaged to be married to the love of his life, Liz. ‘Anywhere is Fine’ was the song he wrote to propose!
“It’s been an incredible ride and I’m just so thankful that my particular journey has taken me in this most unexpected direction,” White says.
