Unbroken Chain Podcast Shorts: Jim White

Jim White is a master storyteller of many mediums: critically acclaimed solo artist of six albums, record producer, visual artist, and writer of award-winning fiction. He is also the narrator and defacto tour guide of the award winning BBC documentary, “Searching for the Wrong Eyed Jesus” (2003), a road movie set in the rural South, which the LA Times described as “decidedly strange, delightfully demented.” Prior to becoming a musician, Jim led an "aimless, diverse life," working countless menial labor jobs: dishwasher, landscaper, lifeguard, cook, surfboard laminator, road builder, culminating with 13 long years driving a taxi cab in New York City. He is currently completing a memoir based on a series of uncanny coincidences that befell him during his days driving that taxi. Jim was also a pro surfer, served as literary commentator for the National Endowment of the Arts, and was a European fashion model. Samuel Beckett once played a practical joke on him. In this conversation, recorded at his home in Athens, Georgia, we cover a lot of territory, from his childhood in the “Christ-haunted south,” to the undoing of harmful spiritual programming, and the universal value of his self-therapy through music. You can enter Jim’s world at www.JimWhite.net and wherever music is found. Video by Daniel Carl Fox The Unbroken Chain podcast is available on all podcasting platforms.
