Live shows 2017
Oct 12 Venue tba Los Angeles, CA
This is the album [Genuine Fake] I've been meaning to make for all the lovely people who have asked me at the merch table after a show- "Which one is like what we just heard, just you and guitar."
These are newly recorded acoustic versions of previously released songs from my albums I Am The Man, Yakiimo and Silver Silver plus some new songs which will end up in some other form on my upcoming band album Little Heaven Little Blue.
"[Simone White] gets innovative on her impressive third album [Silver Silver]. An album of cathartic intimacy ...built around electronic textures and sparse percussion, with White's gently yielding, half-spoken vocals pitched, pleasingly, equidistant between Laurie Anderson and Joni Mitchell. It's not all Spartan fare; the title track, an ostensibly folky duet with Andrew Bird, surfs a hum of woozy electronics and makes room for Steve Reich-like interleaved string pizzicatos and heavily treated drums, while Big Dreams And The Headlines summons a sudden, soaring chorus from the pervading spell-like quietude." Four star review, - MOJO
"Soft-voiced L.A. musician Simone White is the only singer-songwriter signed to Damon Albarn's eclectic Honest Jon's label, and her singular talents are evident on her haunting latest album, Silver Silver. […] the lean-in-to-listen compositions is what makes her performances so captivating."
- TIME OUT NEW YORK
"Simone White has a voice like ether. It's sweetly airy and hypnotic. Hearing it can pull you under to a strangely beautiful, glittering world where nothing seems real." -NPR
"The beguiling Los Angeles-based singer Simone White is known as much for her whispered vocals as for her smart songwriting. Her latest video animates "In The Water Where The City Ends," an intentionally disjointed song off her new album Silver Silver, meant to recall the tsunami that submerged Japan's Tohuku region on this day last year."
-THE HUFFINGTON POST
"White's voice is a delicate instrument, more traditional-sounding than Joanna Newsom's but with a similar ability to interpret lyrics with deceptive and revealing ease. The arrangements she favors on record are of the organic, earthy variety, like vintage Lanois..." -LA WEEKLY
