John White Profile

Jay Clarkson
25 Sep 2017

Dunedin musician John White’s 10 albums have been recorded over the past 20 years, and released by labels such as Arch Hill, Arclife and Monkey Records. He performs two or three times a month, while remaining very committed to his other profession: games designer (Jasper’s Journey and Mogwash). Another album is in the works.

Born in Wellington, raised in Dunedin, New Zealand, White has opened for acts such as Cat Power, Mountain Goats, David Pajo and also some of his favourite New Zealand bands: The Chills, The Bats, HDU, to name a few. In recent years he has been somewhat of a nomad, living in New Zealand, Germany, Sri Lanka, India and the USA.
