When he’s not releasing his own critically acclaimed solo albums he splits time producing records for other songwriters, exhibiting his visual art in galleries and museums across the US and Europe and publishing award winning fiction.His sixth solo studio album, the bizarrely titled Waffles, Triangles & Jesus, is a mind-bending joy ride of sonic influences featuring a bevy of his hometown Athens’ roots musicians, plus west coast indie darlings Dead Rock West, and rock and roll maverick Holly Golightly.Prior to Waffles, Triangles & Jesus, White released five eclectic, totally uncatagorizable albums plus another six even stranger side projects.Numerous songs from his back catalog have appeared both in film and television, with his Primus-esque Word-Mule being featured in Breaking Bad, and more recently his cautionary rocker Crash Into The Sun appearing in Ray McKinnon’s highly praised Sundance Channel series Rectify.Sylvie Simmons:WEBSITESEE A VIDEOSylvie is a singer-songwriter, performer and ukulele player. In 2014 she signed a two-album deal with Light In The Attic Records and released her debut album, Sylvie, to worldwide acclaim. "Poetic, guileless, reminiscent of a female Leonard Cohen", said the (British) Times newspaper; Rolling Stone said, "She's not only good, she's good"; the Guardian newspaper hailed it as "one of the most beautiful albums of the year”.Sylvie is also an award-winning writer, the author of fiction and non-fiction books and a leading music journalist since the late '70s. She is one of very few women included among the predominantly male rock writing elite. The BBC made a documentary about her, titled The Rock Chick. Her books include biographies of Neil Young (Reflections In Broken Glass), Serge Gainsbourg (A Fistful of Gitanes, which novelist JG Ballard named as a favourite book) and NY Times and international best-seller I'm Your Man: The Life Of Leonard Cohen, which has been translated into 20 languages.
