Today, Ms. White shares new video “F*ck Men” via Billboard. The singer-songwriter explains that she is “trying to put forth an image of a trans person that is as normalized as possible.” You can read more of the exclusive interview and check out the video here. The track is from Ms. White’s debut EP, Jade, which is out now.
Ms. White is a NYC-based jazz-pop artist documenting her medical transition through music. Her debut EP “Jade” is a critique of the male-centric music industry and a fierce declaration of womanhood. “Full Grown” is the debut single from this upcoming release. Originally one half of electronic-pop duo Governors, Ms. White embarked on her solo project beginning in early 2015 with her producer and friend Theodore. Her creative process with Jade was inextricably linked to her gender identity and vice versa and she hopes to pave a path for more trans visibility in the music industry. Jade was named after Amy Jade Winehouse, Ms. White’s biggest musical influence and the title track is an homage to the late singer.
