Award Winning artist Jimmy White's new Specialty single, "Dad"
is a moving tribute to his father & to fathers everywhere."
Jimmy White really delivers the goods on his new Ballad “Dad”. Opening with a nice piano figure, “Dad” has a very sentimental reflection on his father, and it is one with which most of us will be able to identify. With lyrics like “No one stronger, no one wiser,” Jimmy’s vocals are so full of emotion that at times it seems as if he’s about to break down as he sings the song. This is a beautiful track with full strings sweetening the mix, and the lingering piano figure on the end reminds me very much of “Dream of the Return,” by Pat Metheny and Pedro Aznar. White’s timing of release is brilliant, and so is this production. The electric guitar has a bright tone, but it’s not abrasive. “Dad” will touch many people who love their fathers and even some who don’t. It’s the perfect song and gift for Father’s Day.

According to White, “I wrote it for my father, James R. White, the "only hero I've ever had"”. White continues, “I hope people will play this song for their father all throughout the year for all different occasions and reasons, or maybe for no reason at all other than they want to express to their dad how much they love him. And that, of course, should be every day, or as close to it as we can come.”
This song is from White’s 26 track, two CD release, “Two Cities”.

"Two Cities, a double album by multi-award winning Jimmy White, is a remarkable creation by a man with a pure voice. White is not a shouter, not a screamer, but a complete crooner within himself. Two Cities is one of the best albums of the year.” John Shelton Ivany, JSI Top 21.
