Wibby White – “Optimistic”
The Miami, Florida Wibby White native has been making music for a few years and is beginning to make a name for himself internationally. His most recent EP, “His Name Is Wibby White”, has garnered a lot of attention and radio play. With songs like “Optimistic”, “Black Disco Baby”, “Boogie Music (ft. Ms. Jha Jha)”,”Soo Alone”, “Principle of Love (ft. Jacki-O) and “I Just Wanna Be Your Everything (feat. Flykidd Jr), Wibby White is leaving an indelible impression on listeners all over the world.
With a sound as unique as his, it makes sense that so many people would sit up and take notice. Self-described as a unique blend of retro, disco, soul and pop – Wibby White’s style is one-of-a-kind.
“I am not afraid of myself or my influences, as it relates to what’s on radio today,” he said. “I am very eclectic, and I’m not afraid of what other people’s perception is of me. Correct or incorrect, I know how to let them have their way.”
Though music is something Wibby White has always had a passion for, it was the business side of the industry that first attracted him. He attended the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale College in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, studying the music video side of the industry.
After college he started his own production company, Pandemonium Productions Worldwide, and four years later had released his first full-length album, “The Trendsetter.” Since then he has continued to make his own music while also helping new and aspiring young artists find their own voice.
“Understanding business and being a businessman, I’ve come to the conclusion that no one owns the music industry,” White said. “The music industry is you and me – the independent artist, the manager, the producer, the songwriter, etc. If you know your business, get in where you fit in. And that’s what I did.”
His success in 2017 made that year one of the best in his career. “Optimistic” is something that he’s particularly proud of and he’s thrilled to see it gain so much attention internationally. The project explores themes of pop and soul through the lens of an “upbeat, sophisticated night life.”
White describes the lyrics as positive and motivational, with subjects talk about pride, individuality and freedom. In many ways he said his music today is an eclectic mix of his favorite sounds, the work he’s done over the years and the many artists who have inspired him throughout his life.
As White continues to ride the waves of success following the release of “Optimistic,” he’s also hard at work on new music. To listen to Wibby White’s music or to follow him on social media, please visit his streams and social media.
