Peter White – Good Day

Peter White’s first steps into music business were as a member of Al Stewart’s band. Although engaged as a keyboardist he played a prominent role as guitarist on Stewart’s mega hit Year Of The Cat. Peter also played guitar on some of Matt Bianco’s releases. Danny White and Basia are the members of this group.

He started his solo career with the 1990 release of Reveillez-Vous (Wake up). Excusez-Moi (1991), Promenade (1993) and Reflections (1994) followed on Sindrome, Caravan of Dreams on Columbia (1996), Songs of the Season (1997), Perfect Moment (1998), Glow (2001), Confidential (2004), Playin’ Favorites (2006) and A Peter White Christmas (2007) on Sony Music. Good Day (2009) is his first album on Peak Records, a division of Concord Music Group.

Peter comments his new album: “I just started going through my backlog of material. Songs that I’ve never finished, some going as far back as ten or fifteen years  and I discovered that I had a lot of gems that I really wanted to show to the world. I wanted to record them in my own time and in my own way, without any outside influence or interference.”

The album was produced by Peter White and DC and co-produced by Philippe Saisse. The starting tune Good Day features Philippe Saisse on keyboards and vibraphone. A romantic song capturing the spirit of Peter’s acoustic guitar. A novelty on a Peter White album is the stake of a vibraphone. “It’s something I’ve never put on a record before, but I try to do something on every album that’s a little different,” explains Peter.
