Biography

Thomas James White (born 30 April 1984) is a Brighton, England-based musician, producer and visual artist. White formed his first band (at the age of 13) with schoolfriend Alistair Gavan, and was offered his first record deal (with DB Records) whilst still 16 and studying for his GCSE's.

Along with his brother, Alex, he forms the nucleus of award-winning band The Electric Soft Parade. To date, they have released three critically acclaimed albums and a six-track EP. He also contributes vocals and guitar to cult Brighton super-group Brakes, and drums and bass to Restlesslist and Clowns respectively.

June 2008 saw the release of his first solo album, I Dream of Black. A follow-up, The Maximalist (Cooking Vinyl) arrived in March 2010. Whilst still played, recorded and mixed by Thomas himself, the album features a markedly more complex, hi-fi sound, and a sleeve designed by legendary American artist Keith Boadwee.

As well as performing solo and in his own groups, Thomas regularly appears as a session player for, among others, Patrick Wolf, British Sea Power, and Sparks.
