Calgary- born / Toronto- based jazz pianist & composer Clayton White grew up in a musical family. He began to play the piano at the age of five, and played regularly at church for over a decade of his youth. His family attended folk/bluegrass festivals & workshops every year, where he performed with his family - expanding his musicianship to multiple instruments such as acoustic guitar & drums. From 2013- 2015, Clayton played keyboards in a well established local Beatles tribute band called "All You Need is Love" - helping to faithfully recreate the keyboard parts from many of The Beatles' famous recordings.
After moving to Toronto ON, Clayton gained acceptance to the music program at Humber College; graduating from the jazz certificate program in 2019 & further continued in the colleges' B.Mus degree program from 2019 - 2023. Through his studies at Humber, Clayton has been fortunate to receive private lessons and mentorship from many award winning pianists including Bernie Senenski, Robi Botos, and Hilario Duran.
Clayton's debut album titled Cloudburst is planned to be released in Summer 23'.
