White’s career as a professional songwriter began while studying at Seton Hall University, when he had the first song he’d ever written published by MCA Music in New York City when he was only nineteen. Since 2006, White has had four #1 STS Main AC Chart singles and 11 #1 Independent AC singles in a row. His music has dominated the AC Charts with songs like “Change My Life” and "One Track Heart" from his smash debut album, “One Track Heart.” and “Sure Feels Like Love”, the first #1 from White’s second album, “Hidden Pictures”. These records translated into White’s' first award at the 2007 NEW MUSIC AWARDS, where White garnered the show's "big" award as “CROSSOVER ARTIST OF THE YEAR”.
He was also a featured performer at the Award show, held at the famous Avalon Theatre in Hollywood, CA, where the Beatles and Rolling Stones first played in America. In their November 16, 2007 edition, the editors of NEW MUSIC WEEKLY said that White gave “one great vocal performance and put on one hell of a show.” Since then, White has won 2 more New Music Awards, including "Best AC Group/Duo" with Jonell Mosser for 2010's "Just What I Need". He has also been named "Best Male Artist" at the Independent Music Awards for the past 2 years running. In 2010, White's "I Wish You Peace" video completed its third year in a row on the regular holiday rotation on the Gospel Music Channel (GMC), which reaches over 50 million homes throughout the U.S.. "Peace" was also on regular rotation on over 100 radio stations nationwide and many more worldwide, including numerous Billboard reporters.
His last three releases, "Just What I Need" a duet with Nashville's legendary Jonell Mosser, 2011's "Katy Did" and “Forever and a Day”, also went # 1 on Independent Country Charts and made the Mediabase/Billboard AC Top 40. His recent single, "Forever and a Day", is his first song produced by the legendary producer, Gary Mallaber, famous for his work with Van Morrison, Steve Miller, Bruce Springsteen and many many others."Forever" recently debuted in Billboard's Hot 100 at #70 and made it into the FMQB AC Top 15. It was White’s 12th AC # 1, as well as his highest charting Billboard release to date. September 2011 marked the release of White's epic new album, "Two Cities", a double CD of 26 songs recorded in Nashville, TN and Buffalo, NY. "Two Cities" is the masterpiece of White's over 30 year music career and already contains 5 AC #1's, with a bunch more coming.
