In short, Basic White is a band that is a guaranteed good time in any live situation, and whose recorded music is bound to be in regular rotation on any rock fan’s playlist.
The band, comprised of founder/guitarist/songwriter Riley White, guitarist Sandro Di Stefano and drummer Jordan Wallace, released their debut 10-song, full-length album, “The Second Half”, on February 22, 2019.
For what is essentially their introduction to a wider rock and roll world, Basic White has crafted a collection of songs that have appeal across a broad spectrum of music lovers. There are enough rockin’ riffs, and examples superlative musicianship to appeal to the ardent rocker, but the hook-laden choruses, close quarter harmonies and insistently memorable melodies can’t but help to fire up those with more straightforward pop sensibilities. At the same time, the deft turns of phrase and real-life authenticity and sincerity of the lyrics can draft in those for whom the words and meaning of a song are paramount.
