Информация о артисте

Бэрри Уайт родился в 1944 году в городе Галвестон (штат Техас, США). Начиналась его взрослая жизнь весьма оригинально: в возрасте 15 лет он загремел на четыре месяца в калифорнийскую тюрьму за кражу автомобильных шин на 30 000 долларов. В то же время, Бэрри рано начал проявлять интерес к музыке. Самостоятельно научился игре на фортепиано, а также пел в детском церковном хоре. В школе он сформировал группу под названием The Upfronts. Их первым релизом стала песенка под названием ''Little Girl'' в 1960 году, она вышла сразу по возвращении Уайта из мест заключения. Несмотря на то, что у Бэрри был красивый низкий баритон, он хотел выступать в роли продюсера и композитора, нежели в качестве певца. Эта группа так и не добилась коммерческого успеха, но все-таки музыканты умудрялись зарабатывать на жизнь представлениями.

В середине 60-х годов Уайт продюсировал и писал песни для исполнителей лейблов Bronco и Mustang, был аранжировщиком Виолы Уиллс и Фелис Тэйлор. У Бэрри всегда был ''нюх'' на музыку, и огромный талант, хотя за всю жизнь он так никогда и не выучил нотной грамоты. В 1969-м он все еще работал на Mustang, где и встретил Дайану Пэрсонс, и двух сестер: Линду и Глодин Джеймс, которые стали солистками созданного Уайтом Love Unlimited Orchestra. Глодин также впоследствии стала женой Уайта. Бэрри стал продюсером троих исполнительниц и ''определил'' их в UNI Records, где они записали удачный первый сингл ''Walkin' In The Rain With The One You Love''. В марте 1972 года сингл разошелся миллионным тиражом. После того, как он поработал сопровождающим менджером девушек в многомесячном туре, он решил записать две композиции с мужским вокалом: ''I've Got So Much To Give'' и ''I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More, Baby'', настаивая на том, чтобы песни исполнял другой певец.

А в 1974 году Уайт вместе с ''Love Unlimited Orchestra'' записывает инструментальную композицию ''Love's Theme'', которая вновь занимает первое место, удерживая его в течение многих недель. По мнению многих исследователей диско-стиля в музыке, именно ''Love's Theme'' является первой классической композицией, написанной в стиле диско и получившей огромную популярность. Композиция заняла также 10-е место в R&B-чарте.

На протяжении семидесятых Уайт создавал прекрасные образцы легкой оркестрованной музыки и эротичных, глубоких диско-соул композиций, таких, как ''Never Never Gonna Give You Up'', ''Can't Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe'', ''You're The First, The Last, My Everything'', ''It's Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next To Me'', ''Playing Your Game, Baby'', и ''Your Sweetness Is My Weakness''. В 1978 году он подписал контракт на 8 миллионов долларов с CBS Records и основал свой собственный лейбл Unlimited Gold Records, под которым Уайт выпускал довольно успешные синглы и альбомы.

Как говорится чем выше шкаф, тем громче падает, вот и Бэрри начались такие времена... Музыка диско была дружно признана всеми абсолютно безвкусной, и музыка Бэрри причислялась именно к этой категории. Его прекрасный ритм-н-блюзовый стиль не принимался никем во внимание. По просшествии нескольких лет, в 1987 году, Бэрри Уайт возвращается с альбомом ''The Right Night and Barry White'', на котором содержался удачный хит ''Sho' You Right'', написанный в манере техно-фанка. Успешное возвращение было закреплено в 1989 году с взрывным исполнением композиции ''The Secret Garden (Sweet Seduction Suite)''. С выходом следующего альбома, в 1991-м, ''Put Me In Your Mix'', Уайт вновь на первых строчках чартов. В 1994-м выходит тройной платиновый альбом The Icon Is Love с просто супер-хитом ''Practice What You Preach''. Сейчас Уайту уже 57 лет, но он был все еще молод душой, и отчаянно ''двигал'' свою карьеру дальше, открывая все новые и новые горизонты.

В декабре 1999 года он выпустил автобиографическую книгу ''Love Unlimited'' (''Безграничная любовь''). Рассказывая о себе от третьего лица, Бэрри пишет: ''Бэрри Уайту очень повезло, что он вышел из гетто - без образования, без денег, без всего - и повезло достичь того уровня, на который он, в конце концов, вышел. Музыка подарила мне самое главное - множество друзей по всему миру. Я достиг большого успеха, и извлек для себя из этого успеха все. И я горжусь этим''. Когда его спросили о том что же он считает своим главным достижением, Уайт сказал: ''Отличный от всех остальных звук, постоянство и мое кредо - всегда оставаться честным в своем искусстве. Я надеюсь, что именно поэтому меня будут помнить...''

Умер Бэрри Уайт 4 июля 2003 года от сердечного приступа. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
Barry White (born Barrence Eugene Carter in Galveston, Texas, USA; September 12, 1944 - July 4, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter and record producer, known for his hit soul and rnb singles such as "Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe" as well as his long, mutli-decade career. White grew up in his hometown in Galveston, Texas, singing gospel songs with his mother and finding himself strongly drawn to piano playing. Shortly after moving from Texas to the 'South Central' area of Los Angeles, California, White went even further into music.

He made his recording debut at the tender age of 11, playing piano on Jesse Belvin's "Goodnight My Love". He made his first record when he was 16 with a group called the Upfronts. The song was called "Little Girl" on a local L.A. label called Lummtone Records. He later worked for various independent labels around Los Angeles, landing an A&R position with Bob Keane, the man responsible for the first pop recordings by Sam Cooke. One of his labels, Mustang, was hot at the time with a group called the Bobby Fuller Four in 1966. White was hired for forty dollars a week to do A&R for Keane's family of labels: Del-Fi, Mustang and Bronco. During this time, White flirted with the idea of being a recording artist, making a record for Bronco called All in the Run of a Day. But he chose to stick with his A&R duties. One of the first groups he worked with was the Versatiles who later changed their name to The 5th Dimension. White's first big hit came from an artist familiar to dancefloor denizens - Viola Wills, whose "Lost Without the Love of My Guy" went Top 20 R&B. His salary went up to sixty dollars a week. White started working with the Bobby Fuller Four. Bob Keene and Larry Nunes - who later became White's spiritual advisor and true friend - wanted to cut a female act. White had heard about a singer named Felice Taylor. They had three hit records, "It May Be Winter Outside", "I'm Under the Influence of Love", and "I Feel Love Coming On". They were huge hits in England. White started making 400 dollars a week.

When Bronco went out of business, White began doing independent production. Those were some lean times for White. Veteran arranger Gene Page (who would later arrange or co-arrange White's hits) helped him out, giving him work and non-repayable loans. Then three years later, Paul Politti, who also worked at Bronco, contacted him to tell him that Nunes was interested in starting a business with him. Nunes had started cutting tracks for a concept album he was working on. Meanwhile, White had started working with a girl group which hadn't done any singing professionally. They rehearsed for almost a year. White wrote Walkin' in the Rain With the One I Love with lyrics that were inspired by conversations with one of the singers, Glodean James (who would later become White's second wife). White christened the group Love Unlimited.

Nunes took the record to Russ Regan, who was the head of the Uni label owned by MCA. Love Unlimited's From a Girl's Point of View became a million-seller album. Soon after, Regan left Uni for 20th Century Records. Without Regan, White's relationship with Uni soured. With the relationship between Uni and himself in chaos, and Love Unlimited contract-bound to the label, White decided he needed to work with another act. He wanted to work with a male artist. He made three song demos of himself singing and playing the piano. Nunes heard them and insisted that he re-record and release them as a recording artist. They argued for days about it, before Nunes finally convinced White into doing it. White was still hesitant up to the time the label copy was made. He was going to use the name "White Heat", but the record became the first Barry White album. That first album was 1973's I've Got So Much to Give on 20th Century Records. It included the title track I've Got So Much to Give and I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby.

White eventually secured a release from Uni for Love Unlimited and they joined him over at 20th Century Records. He then had a brainstorm for another concept album and told Regan he wanted to do an instrumental album. Regan thought he had lost it. White wanted to call it the Love Unlimited Orchestra. The single, Love's Theme, went to #1 on the pop chart, was a million-seller, and was a global hit. The song earned him a BMI award for over three million covers.

He was at home appearing on Soul Train, guesting with a full band on The Today Show, and appearing in cartoon form in various episodes of "The Simpsons". During the '70s, Dinah Shore devoted a full hour of her daily syndicated Dinah! show to "The Maestro", as White was often referred to. While there was a period when he wasn't releasing records or making the pop charts, White stayed active touring and appearing on other artists' records including Quincy Jones' The Secret Garden (The Seduction Suite), Regina Belle, and rap star Big Daddy Kane's "All of Me".

➤ his own Stone Gon'; Barry White Sings for Someone You Love (It's Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next to Me, Playing Your Game Baby); Let the Music Play (Let the Music Play, You See the Trouble with Me); Just Another Way to Say I Love You (I'll Do for You Anything You Want Me To, Love Serenade); The Man (Your Sweetness Is My Weakness, Sha La La Means I Love You, "September When We Met", and the splendid Billy Joel cover Just the Way You Are);

➤ Love Unlimited's In Heat (I Belong to You, Move Me No Mountain, Share a Little Love in Your Heart, and the sung version of "Love's Theme"); and

➤ the Together Brothers soundtrack which he scored for the 20th Century Fox film, enjoying a resurgence on home video.

His studio band included such luminaries as guitarists Ray Parker, Jr. (pre-Raydio, co-writer with White on "You See the Trouble With Me"), bassist Nathan East, Wah Wah Watson, David T. Walker, Dean Parks, Don Peake, bassist Wilton Felder of the Crusaders, Lee Ritenour, drummer Ed Greene, percussionist Gary Coleman, and later keyboardist Rahn Coleman. His hit streak seemed, well, unlimited. Then it all derailed. Regan and another ally, Hosea Wilson, left 20th Century Records and White was left with a management of which he thought in less than glowing terms.

White left after fulfilling his contract with two more album releases, Love Unlimited Orchestra's My Musical Bouquet and his own I Love to Sing the Songs I Sing. White signed a custom label deal with CBS Records. At the time it was touted as one of the biggest deals ever. He started a label called Unlimited Gold. The roster included White, Love Unlimited, the Love Unlimited Orchestra, Jack Perry, and a teenaged singer named Danny Pearson who charted with a song called "What's Your Sign Girl". He also did a duet album with Glodean James called Barry & Glodean. Aside from the gold album The Message Is Love, most of the albums weren't huge sellers. After eight Barry White albums, four Love Unlimited albums, four Love Unlimited Orchestra albums, constant touring, and dealing with the rigors of the music industry, White decided to take a break.

Then in 1992, White signed with A&M, releasing the albums The Man Is Back, The Right Night & Barry White, and Put Me in Your Mix (which contains a duet with Isaac Hayes, Dark And Lovely (You Over There)). The Icon Is Love became his biggest-selling album since the '70s releases, going multi-platinum. It includes the platinum single Practice What You Preach. The production lineup included Gerald Levert and Tony Nicholas, his godson Chuckii Booker, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and White and his longtime friend Perry. While some later efforts buried his vocals in whiz-bang electronic effects, on The Icon Is Love, White's deep baritone pipes are upfront in the mix. Staying Power followed in 1999, showcased in the best tradition of soul music where the focus was the singer and the song. The album earned White two Grammys. White's career had taken him from the ghetto to international success with 106 gold and 41 platinum albums, 20 gold and ten platinum singles, with worldwide sales in excess of 100 million.

White, who suffered from hypertension and chronic high blood pressure, was hospitalized for kidney failure in September of 2002. He was undergoing dialysis treatment, but the combination of illnesses proved too much and he died July 4, 2003 at a West Hollywood hospital.
