In 2011 White created the record label, Spacebomb Records, which aimed to make available a house band and record a wide variety of music.[1]

White released his debut album as a leader, Big Inner, in August 2012, the first from Spacebomb Records and co-released by Hometapes, which the New York Times called "a dramatic pop-gospel record that hits extremes of the mood spectrum."[2] Big Inner debuted at #19 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart,[3] and by the end of 2012, White had been named eMusic's Breakthrough Artist of 2012,[4] Paste magazine's Best New Act of 2012,[5] and a Consequence of Sound Rookie of the Year,[6] and Big Inner had appeared on multiple best of 2012 lists.[7][8] Domino released the album worldwide in January 2013,[9] and it received five stars from The Guardian[10] and was called "One of the great albums of modern Americana" by Uncut magazine.[11]

In addition to his solo work, White is also the leader of the avant-garde jazz big band Fight the Big Bull, for which he composes and arranges all music, and a former member of rock band The Great White Jenkins. He has collaborated with artists like Megafaun, Justin Vernon, Sharon Van Etten, Steven Bernstein, Ken Vandermark, David Karsten Daniels, Foxygen and the Mountain Goats.
