A 5-song EP of original, inspiring,and uplifting soul/pop songs written and performed by Billy White & some of the worlds top musicians
For those of you who don't know me or what I do, my name is Billy White. I have been a pianist since I was a little kid, and it has taken me though life so far -- from my first touring gig with the circus as a 16-year old to UCLA's jazz studies program to the mean streets of Brooklyn. I've played with soul legend Bilal, young jazz lions Dayna Stephens and Ambrose Akinmusire, and many awesome musicians from around the world. : I've worked with jazz, Latin, hip hop, dubstep, soul, gospel, classical and world music groups and I love and have learned something from EVERY kind of music. My love of music is sincere and knows no boundaries, and I love to share it with others.
For those of you who do know me, and who checked out "First Things First" (my debut album, reviewed in Down Beat) a lot of you may be wondering when my next album is coming out. Well, since 2010, I've been hit with a wave of inspiration, leading me to write almost 6 albums worth of material.
The album I feel most passionate about NOW is a 5-song EP of soul/pop/r&b songs. I wrote the lyrics, music and all the arrangements, and have sung and performed most of the songs in New York, San Francisco, and LA. However, in order to share it with the most people, I need to record it.
That's why I've built Studio 301 in Brooklyn, NY. But in order to really deliver the best product, I need to hire some dedicated professional studio musicians. Then, I'm going to fund a music video based on the strongest single.
Your Kickstarter contribution will go 100% towards the studio musicians and the video artists.
These songs are my children. Please help me bring them to life-even a very small donation will help. I want to make the world a better place, and this music is designed to do just that.
