Whitey’s latest release, Lost Summer, was released via Bandcamp in May“after several months of terrible record deal offers, talking to tasteless arrogant A&R’s and knocking on closed doors” (Whitey’s own words).
His career has spanned nearly a decade, his previous albums, 2004’s critically acclaimed The Light at the End of the Tunnel is a Train and Great Shakes which was leaked onto the internet and consequently never got an official release. Whitey also released the exceptional Canned Laughter in 2010.
