Chalkie White was one of Australian music’s best kept secrets, until 2018. He can now add ARIA #1 Australian Country Album to his resume, a far cry from the previous 20 years touring regional Australia playing with a level of anonymity that echoes his personality. It often takes a major obstacle to help define your direction, and this was the case with Chalkie. In 2016 he was diagnosed with cancer and the prognosis was frightening. It was this event that prompted a change of focus. He released his debut single ‘New Day’ in 2017 that signified his newfound hunger for success. The track surprised with an iTunes #4 singles chart position. The next single ‘Gingerbread Man’ charted at #1 on Australian Country radio charts, and on numerous digital radio platforms. With the brand-new iTunes #1 single ‘Wish She Was You’ In Chalkie’s case, there is a lot to be said for patience, opportunity and making the most of what you have to offer. There is no doubt that this storyteller will continue to make fans across the country as he shares his journey with music lovers everywhere.
