Although he was born and raised in North Bay, Ontario, David Dino White first discovered music while attending high school in Bolton, Ontario. Frequenting heavy metal and high energy ska-punk shows was the cool thing to do at that point in time, so it only made sense in David’s mind, to start playing guitar and form a band. By grade 12 David’s dream of being in a band had come true, but it was cut short when high school ended and David had to move back to North Bay for university. In spite of the break up, David never stopped playing his guitar, and now, nearly a decade later, his unique blend of northern Ontario folk and southern Ontario rock has found itself a new band and a new band! David’s debut CD ‘Alone Together’ was released this passed July, is available on iTunes, bandcamp, spotify, and nearly every other internet source for music you can think of!
