Biography

The great Banana Boy!

Christopher White is a musician, guitar teacher, avid walker, and appreciator of cheap fruits and vegetables. He grew up in Hamilton, NY, attended college at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, and now lives in Brooklyn, NY. He doesn’t know how many songs he has written, but in 2006 he estimated that the number was about 300, so now the number is probably somewhat higher than that. In the summer of 2006, he once wrote 50 songs in a week. Lately he has been writing songs less, and spending more time just making noise. This may or may not be a short phase. A full beard has been a part of Chris White’s life since 2001. Since then, he has shaved approximately five times. Chris White has been described as a combination of Django Reinhardt, Frank Sinatra, and Mel Blanc. This generous description may not be entirely accurate, but it sounds impressive. When people ask Chris what kind of guitar he plays, he usually has to look inside the sound hole to remind himself what the model is. He will do that now for those who are wondering. It appears to be a Takamine EC132SC. Chris has been playing mostly a nylon string guitar since 5th grade. He doesn’t remember specifically why he switched to nylon strings, but he uses them most of the time now for the simple reason that he is used to them. In 2007, the music video of Chris’ song, “The Banana Song,” was featured on the home page of youtube.com. As of this writing, his youtube videos have a combined total of 2,615,066 hits.
