“A Nashville newcomer with a timeless voice.”

Dee White recently released his debut album, Southern Gentleman, via Dan Auerbach’s label, Easy Eye Sound, and Warner Music Nashville to much acclaim, with NPR Music hailing it’s “exquisite, soaring, plaintive melodies,” and Rolling Stone Country, who also interviewed White, saying he “sings sweetly of small-town life, love and friendships in a way that feels lived-in, with a musical backdrop that’s lush and pretty enough to match his croon. White was also interviewed by The Tennessean, who said the record’s ten songs are “tied together with sharp, organic production and White's tender croon — which has earned deserved comparisons to Roy Orbison,” and Billboard, who says the newly released album “is catching a lot of ears.” Listen to Southern Gentleman here.

The initial five tracks on the album, Side A, were released early as an introduction to the Slapout, Alabama native who makes classic-minded country music for the modern world, and were debuted as an NPR First Listen. NPR says White “is up to something very different than most others in the swelling ranks of young artists with vintage country tastes” and says the album has a “finesse and a distinctly introspective angle on masculinity, and he applies those qualities in such an exhilarating way that his music is likely to sneak up on listeners and make a lasting impact.”
 
Southern Gentleman features performances by Alison Krauss, Ashley McBryde, and Dan Auerbach, who co-produced the album alongside David “Fergie” Ferguson. Said Auerbach about working with White: “When Harold Shedd brought Dee to the studio, I knew he must be the real thing. And when he started to sing, what came out was the most original voice I’ve heard in years.” On the record White is also backed by legendary session players Gene Chrisman and Bobby Wood of the Memphis Boys (percussion and keys), guitarist Billy Sanford, keyboard player Pig Robbins, Mickey Raphael (harmonica) and others.
 
Raised in small-town Alabama, Dee White is a raw, natural songwriter, spinning the sounds and stories of the American South into songs that nod to the past while still chasing down new horizons. It was Harold Shedd — the music mogul responsible for signing Alabama, discovering Shania Twain, and producing Reba McEntire’s first gold record — who encouraged White to pursue music. Impressed with Dee’s unschooled, captivating voice and sharp writing chops, Shedd became an unlikely mentor. With his support, Dee began turning his focus toward songwriting, transforming a hobby into something far more potent.
 
White spent most of his high school free time on the water in Slapout, Alabama. A competitive fisherman, he visited Lake Jordan every afternoon as a teenager. He’d take along his phone, too, soundtracking those daily fishing trips with the sounds of classic country. Almost by osmosis, the sounds of this timeless music seeped into his head. Dee left college and began making trips to Tennessee, where he found another mentor in Dan Auerbach. Together, the two co-wrote a number of songs, often teaming up with additional song-writers in town. Alison Krauss, whom White has opened for on numerous occasions, found a kindred spirit in the 20 year-old Dee, whose unforced vibrato and effortless tone floored her.
