New Peter White!

On his latest CD Smile, Peter White proves yet again that he doesn’t have to plug in to electrify audiences. (Release date: October 7.)
After recording an album of cover songs some eight years ago, guitarist/multi-instrumentalist/composer Peter White decided that the next three albums would consist entirely of his own material. Smile, produced by DC and White, is the final CD in that trilogy which started with Good Day (2009) and continued with Here We Go (2012). Scheduled for release on October 7, the album features ten tracks – some were written recently, some he wrote along the way with close friends and some were from the vault. Special guests include Mindi Abair (vocals), Rick Braun (horns), Euge Groove (soprano sax) and Philippe Saisse (keyboards, piano and orchestra programming). White’s daughter, Charlotte, plays violin on one song. Born in England, White first gained fame with his distinctive guitar style as accompanist to Al Stewart. During a 20-year tenure with Stewart, he co-wrote many songs, including Stewart’s 1978 top-ten hit “Time Passages.”
