Basic White is an indie-rock band that draws inspiration from anywhere it can. Blues, Rock, Folk, are all genres that find their way into the band's music and style, although using it with their own unique blend of playing and musicianship has become their staple.
In late 2016 the band formed, and went right into EMAC Studios in London, ON to record their debut EP "Long Time Comin'". The release was followed by a 10-date cross-Ontario tour to promote the record. In 2017 the band worked to reach larger audiences, playing opening slots for Classified, Mother Mother, illScarlett, and Teenage Head. In early 2019 the band released their first single from their upcoming record, "The Second Half". The song (Time To Leave) was premiered by radio legend Alan Cross on Toronto's 102.1 The Edge, and the video was also a featured write up on IHeartRadio and Live In Limbo. The lead single was followed by a full-length LP titled “The Second Half”. This lead to the band scoring slots alongside Alan Doyle, The Watchmen, Danko Jones, Hollerado and Bahamas.
