It's been a Long Hard Ride...
Songwriter and Music Producer/Publisher David E. White grew up in Southern Oregon. In high school David played in the Jazz band and orchestra being able to perform at the Seattle World Fair. While in high school he and friends started a band performing all over Oregon.
Later David, with friends, formed a group called New Directions. They performed all over Oregon, Washington, and Northern California and toured Oregon opening for "The Turtles" and then opening for "Paul Revere and the Raiders" at Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon.
After high school David moved to Las Vegas joining a band and performing at various clubs for several years. In Las Vegas he met long time friend, and for a while brother-in-law, songwriter Brian Baggs whom he sometimes co-writes with.
David returned to Oregon in 1987, working at a TV/Video training school but soon started feeling the need to start writing again. It's been a long and slow process as he's started to once again perfect his craft.
David started his publishing company, Canyon River Music, five years ago and is having a ball writing and recording again. He's also started producing for others.
"It's been a long hard ride, and a long time coming..." says David.
David has recently been working with orchestrator, arranger, and composer Jimmy Lockett of Las Vegas, Nevada. Jimmy has performed on Broadway in New York and orchestrated several musicals that have been produced. He is a truly talented musician and David is glad to have been able to have Jimmy work with him on several songs.
David is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Association International, and Portland Songwriter Association.
