“You’ve Been My Girl” by Knox White is funky AF
The debut single of Los Angeles’ artist Knox White, “You’ve Been My Girl,” deals with that one person we will always have a relationship with. “When it comes to love we all have that one person we come back to, no matter what,” says Knox.
Part of Knox’s motivation came from his time as a bartender in a fancy bar in Los Angeles. Where he received advice from some of the biggest names in the music industry. Lionel Ritchie was a regular he often served and felt almost like an uncle, giving advice and sharing stories about being on the road. The line that really struck a chord? Ritchie told him: “Don’t sell your soul to the devil to get success in the music business. Stay humble and treat everyone like they are your friend.”
Another night he served Sir Paul McCartney, and the legendary musician left him this piece of advice, “get amazing live first and everything else will fall into place.”
Heeding those words, Knox began writing and producing his own throwback style of chill wave pop infused with some serious guitar shredding. In July 2018, Knox White will debut his (self titled) EP.
