Dee White
Dee White makes classic-minded country music for the modern world. Raised in small-town Alabama, he's a raw, natural songwriter, spinning the sounds and stories of the American South into songs that nod to the past while still chasing down new horizons. His songs are classics-in-the-making, inspired by traditional sounds but happily rooted in the 21st century. This isn't a throwback act. Instead, it's a contemporary, ageless take on country music — one that packs just as strong a punch today as it would've 50 years ago.

A. Lee Edwards was a member of Chocolate U.S.A., Bar None Records, in NYC and Athens GA, along with Julian Koster (The Music Tapes, Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control), before forming Lou Ford in Charlotte with brother Chad Edwards in 1995. Lou Ford released 3 albums beginning with ‘Sad, but familiar’ in ’97, ‘Alan Freed’s Radio’ in ’99 and ‘Poor Man’s Soul’, after reforming in 2007. Lou Ford disbanded in 2009 and the Edwards brothers formed the Loudermilks. The Loudermilks released their self titled debut Album in 2014 and their followup 'Monument' in 2016.

Throughout the years Alan has shared the stage with the likes of: the Avett Brothers, Whiskeytown, John Doe, Tift Merrit, Old 97s, Drive By Truckers, Syd Straw, Freedy Johnston, Todd Snyder, Buddy and Julie Miller, The Blasters and Dave Alvin, to name a few.

A. Lee Edwards is currently residing in WNC and working on his first solo album.

“...sounds like the product of a childhood spent listening to a cool aunt or uncle’s well-worn copies of Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, The Gilded Palace Of Sin and Exile On Main Street..." , wrote No Depression Magazine.

Alan Edwards’ "strength has always been avoiding country rock’s clichés while remaining true to its tenets and slipping in a punk-inspired defiance", wrote Creative Loafing.

Alan’s music has been described as “recorded more in sepia, than in stereo. These songs sound as if they've always been.“
