White Mystery is a brother-sister rock’n’roll duo made up of Miss Alex White & Francis Scott Key White. The siblings tour worldwide and have earned rave reviews from MTV, VICE , Sound Opinions, and Pitchfork amongst other publications. They recently premiered a feature length film, titled White Mystery ‘”THAT WAS AWESOME”, during this year’s Chicago International Movies & Music Festival (CIMMFest).
Miss Alex White was featured in Guitar World’s, “Ten Female Guitarists You Should Know” in 2011 and has had sixteen releases since 2003.
White is not only a talented and celebrated musician, but also upholds identities as a record producer, distributor, licensor, booker, promoter, and more. Every element and facet of White Mystery is owned and supported by the White family.
“It’s fun interacting with an event organizer and transforming an idea into a reality,” Miss White said. “Every show requires development and special ingredients for success, whether you book a house party or an outdoor fest.”
The very first show Miss White booked was in 2001 on the second floor of the Chase Park field house in Chicago, performing with the band Psychotic Sensation. After that band split apart in 2008, White Mystery has performed frequently in Chicago, Austin, New York and Paris.
White Mystery’s favorite local venues include Millennium Park, The Metro, The Hideout, The Double Door, Empty Bottle, and Reckless Records.
White said that it would be helpful to have an agent who could, “run at the same speed as White Mystery,” and that they could always use help in maintaining their musical motivations.
