In this episode, Peter White has selected 15 songs from his extensive catalog and gives us the inside view on what the songs meant to him and how the songs came to be.

Peter White was born and raised in Northern Ontario, Canada. He says, “I grew up on a musical diet that included artists such as: The Guess Who, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Rush, Jethro Tull, Deep Purple, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Tom Petty, Bruce Cockburn, Eric Clapton, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Eagles, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Sting, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Waits.”

White’s love of music steered him to a university music education that focused on vocal training. That brought him into contact with everything from Gregorian Chant to Beethoven to Schoenberg, leading to a career teaching music in high school.

Always, when away from his profession, he wrote songs and played in bands on stages and in bars. Over time, White developed a passion for the history of the region he grew up in and around, native studies and Jungian philosophy. These are themes that consistently show up in his songwriting, yet there remains a surprising, strong sense of humour in the music. Upon retiring from teaching, White has continued deeper into his personal interests. The lyrical content pays detailed attention to the truth of history and the lessons therein. His music is mostly of the pop and rock tradition, but White often found himself among jazz and classically trained musicians, and as such the recording performances are of high quality that make for compelling listening.
