I have a dry sense of humour and consider myself able to hold a conversation but also a good listener.
I like going for a night out every so often but am also happy staying in and lounging on the couch watching movies or cooking for loved ones!

From January 14 to 25 I will be counting down the ten new acts I expect big things from in 2008. A., has producers like Mark Ronson (who featured her on Versions "Pretty Green), Freq Nasty, the late Disco D, Diplo and Switch on speed dial, co-wrote Lily Allens "Littlest Things and joined Björks tour after a personal invitation by the Icelandic god herself.
It seems to have paid off for the Philly-bred artist, considering she was praised by just about everyone all last year and was too busy to even release her highly anticipated debut album (which will feature production from most if not all of the aforementioned names). With a similar vocal pitch as Gwen Stefani, Santogold can certainly give that peroxide princess a run for her money on both commercial radio and in cooler circles, especially with the hipster cred on her side.
But 2008 will be different, and finding herself on the cover of Faders January issue is a great start. in the race to see who can hop more genres and confuse the most journalists. But my moneys on tracks like the Switch-produced "Shove It to make the real impact; Switch douses the jame in a bucket of dub for a flammable banger that should set dance floors ablazin.
After it has passed I look back on the things and I am, like, 'That was awesome, and I am so glad I got to do that', but in the midst of it all it is a bit much.
But I am really grateful and happy about how the past year has gone." White is an artist who has captured the collective imagination.
For the past year White's life has been a cat-and-mouse game between a variety of timezones across the globe as she supported some of pop's most established stars including Coldplay, Jay Z, Kanye West, Björk and The Streets.She attracts hipsters, hip-hoppers and your bog standard music fans normally satisfied with the bi-yearly releases from MOR trio Coldplay, Keane and Snow Patrol.She has supported Björk at Madison Square Garden, toured the US with Coldplay, supported The Streets at the Electric Proms and has recorded a new track, "Brooklyn Go Hard", with Jay Z.With her songwriting partner John Hill (also a former member of Stiffed), White has amassed a unique body of work that finds her primed to surpass pal M. Santogolds debut album is scheduled for a spring release on Downtown Records (Art Brut, Gnarls Barkley, Cold War Kids). Click here for a tasty sampler of Santogolds colourful range.
