Word of South

Jim White

Jim White gets around. When he’s not releasing his own critically acclaimed solo albums, he splits time producing records for other songwriters, exhibiting his visual art in galleries and museums across the U.S. and Europe and publishing award winning fiction.

His sixth solo studio album, the bizarrely titled “Waffles, Triangles & Jesus,” is a mind-bending joy ride of sonic influences featuring a bevy of his hometown Athens’ roots musicians, plus west coast indie darlings Dead Rock West, and rock and roll maverick Holly Golightly.

Prior to “Waffles, Triangles & Jesus,” White released five eclectic, totally uncatagorizable albums plus another six even stranger side projects. Numerous songs from his back catalog have appeared both in film and television, with his Primus-esque Word-Mule being featured in Breaking Bad, and more recently his cautionary rocker Crash Into The Sun appearing in Ray McKinnon’s highly praised Sundance Channel series Rectify. Jim will be appearing on Saturday at Word of South with the musician/artist Abe Partridge and writer Tad Bartlett, and again on Sunday with Tallahassee’s Mark Hinson to discuss Jim’s new memoir, Incidental Contact.
