From a very young age Peggy knew that music would be the driving force of her existence. Peggy's earliest influences stemmed from roots and traditional country. By the time she was performing regularly before live audiences, the music from artists like Gordon Lightfoot, Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell, and James Taylor had also begun to shape her musical style. Fresh out of high school she toured extensively across Canada for several years as a solo artist as well as a supporting musician for other groups.
In 1987, Peggy met her writing partner, Gene Bruce, who soon became her sound engineer on the road. The pair have been honing their songwriting skills over the last twelve years and their efforts have finally culminated with the release of Peggy White's debut full-production album, Fair Is Fair, which is already garnering label interest and respect from some top Canadian musical peers.
For the album, Peggy has brought on board producer Gerry Griffin and engineers Ken Friesen and Chris Shreenan-Dyck, all of whom have extensive studio experience and have worked closely with Grammy Award winning producer/engineers Jeffrey Lesser and Trina Shoemaker. Players on the CD include drummer, Miche Pouliot, Susan Aglukark's percussionist Craig Bignell, Steel Rail's Dave Clarke and Tod Gorr, Maritime Fiddling Champion Kelli Trottier, and Canadian folk alumnus Terry Tufts, courtesy of Borealis Records.
Fair Is Fair is currently receiving airplay on CBC stations Canada-wide, as well as Canadian college and university stations. It is also being played on Americana, college and university stations in the United States and Americana/country stations in Europe. It has been voted #18 on the DJs Favourite List in Europe.
