TONY JOE WHITE


BIO: In America Tony Joe White is known largely for his 1969 hit “Polk Salad Annie.” Some may be familiar with “Rainy Night in Georgia,” as performed by Brook Benton and a host of others, but few are aware that White wrote it. In Europe and Australia, it’s another story. Over there, White’s brand of sensuous swamp rock continues to pack clubs and theaters, and women of all ages suffer weak knees at the sound of his deep drawl—think Elvis first thing in the morning. Through four decades, the Louisianaborn picker has released more than two-dozen records, dealing out funky rhythm guitar and snakey solos. On his latest outing, The Shine [Swamp], this groove master employs his vintage Stratocasters and “Whomperstomper” to deliver a lecture on wringing sultry soul out of a minimalist attitude.
