Whitey is an ongoing solo project by N.J. Whitey. He is a hard character to pin down- his genre-twisting songs swing wildly between styles, and his dismissive attitude towards the music industry means there are few shows, and even fewer interviews. He has to date had no major record deal, but has still released over 30 records under a variety of names. Yet without any significant industry investment his distinctive sounds have broken through to mainstream daytime radio in the U.S and elsewhere, and for four straight years his music has been a fixture from rock clubs to fashion runways, from movie soundtracks to television, computer games to skate films. From Japan to Iceland, Moscow to Hollywood. From Breaking Bad to the Sopranos to Grand Theft Auto. Gradually this U.K. artist has built a strange home in the shadowy ground between high fashion and mainstream entertainment, between radio and what little is left of the . An outsider who relishes this status, and celebrates this outsider ethos in his work.
