JEFF WHITE INKS ARTIST ENDORSEMENT DEAL WITH AIRPLAY DIRECT
Posted on April 16, 2016
AirPlay Direct is pleased to announce that we have recently signed an Artist Endorsement Agreement with Jeff White. This new creative partnership will serve to extend the Jeff White brand, and his global radio distribution footprint for his new release Right Beside You, as well as his personal catalogue.
In the world of bluegrass virtuosos, where talent is real and auto-tune is a foreign concept, White is a superstar among musicians. This is a man whose command of the instrument put him onstage and on record with influential artists Alison Krauss, Vince Gil, The Chieftains, Lyle Lovett and Tim O’Brien. This is a studio diplomat comfortable writing songs, producing records or just jamming with friends.
AirPlay Direct announced the launch of their new V.I.P. Endorsement / Professional Development Initiative in late 2015. This strategic program was developed to grant specific endorsement opportunities, and professional services / resources to worthy artists, radio programmers and music industry professionals globally. AirPlay Direct’s consulting division, Collective Evolution, has developed and will now manage these new programs for AirPlay Direct.
"I’m extremely excited and grateful to receive this endorsement from AirPlay Direct. Since releasing my new album, Right Beside You, AirPlay Direct has been energetic and amazingly creative getting this new music of mine to a global audience. I would like to sincerely thank Lynda and Robert at AirPlay Direct for their hard work and dedication. I am really looking forward to this new musical journey." --Jeff White, Artist / Producer
On this masterpiece of an album, some of the world’s finest acoustic musicians and singers stand right beside White. They join him in sublime renditions of great old—and not-so-old—songs. With their presence, they demonstrate the respect and loyalty they feel toward Jeff. After all, he has provided stellar musical support as they pursued their dreams of stardom.

“Everyone that has had the pleasure of working with Jeff closely, loves and admires his talent and art… but more importantly repeats and adores the man”. --Lynda Weingartz – CEO, AirPlay Direct
Jeff is currently enjoying tremendous success at global radio… with all three of his releases!
On his two solo albums, 1996’s The White Album and 1999’s The Broken Road, both of which he produced, White showcases his quiet brilliance. He’s a flatpicker with an easy going style that belies his instrumental perfection. He’s squarely in modern bluegrass terrain, combining the hallmarks of the genre with rootsy dashes of country, folk and Celtic music. For White, mixing sonic ingredients is a natural progression.
