Geneva White is no stranger to the music industry. The Key Largo, FL native attended the University of Miami Frost School of Music and quickly developed her career upon graduation as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. She fronted the band Kan Wakan (Verve Records) for some time, opening for Royal Blood and Arctic Monkeys. Upon leaving the band, she fell into the songwriting scene, finding herself in sessions with the likes of Jeff “Gitty” Gitelman (Chance The Rapper, J. Cole), Chris Hartz (Childish Gambino, Passion Pit), and the UK’s legendary drum and bass artist Shy Fx to name a few. While perfecting her writing chops, many in the industry told her that she should accept her career as a songwriter, but she refused to settle. She left LA for London and immersed herself in the jazz scene, ultimately rediscovering her love of creating music.
Within a week of returning to LA to focus on her own original music, Geneva’s artist vision started to come to fruition. She was selected to perform back up for Lorde at this year’s Coachella, forcing her to double down on her efforts; diving head first into rehearsals and spending every other wakeful moment in the studio crafting her debut release. Simultaneously across the pond, Armada’s LowSteppa chose his next single to be their co-written house anthem “Can’t Lie;” featuring the compelling vocals of Geneva White. With over 3 million streams on Spotify alone, features in numerous Apple curated playlists, and the ongoing support from BBC Radio 1, the single “Can’t Lie” is set to see continued success.
