Blue Child Collective is a fluid groove collaboration born on the rugged coastline of Margaret River, Western Australia.
At its heart is Dan White, director of The West Australian Guitar Festival, prolific songwriter, keen producer and fingerstyle artisan who has a swathe of albums, documentaries and more to his name. From his thought-provoking lyrics to the Collective’s engaging live performances, “Blue Child Collective is connecting people through music” (Scenstr), creating waves that have earned them a recent nomination for West Australian Music’s Best Regional Act and shows with The Cat Empire, Xavier Rudd, Sticky Fingers, San Cisco, Teskey Brothers, Ash Grunwald, The Jungle Giants and many more.
The Collective's third record, “Saturn Saw The Seaside”, captured in Corsica, France and released late 2016 saw them knock out over 250 shows across Europe, New Zealand, Australia and Singapore in 2 years of full on touring, bringing both full band dance offs and intimate solo/duo performances to a rapidly growing global following.
With their 4th record, “Wake Up To The Sound”, featuring an all class line up just out in November last year, 2019 has already seen the group bust out a 16-date Australian Tour in Jan-Feb, along with another New Zealand tour in March, with another documentary, titled “The Art Of Sound”, out later this year and new music dropping in its wake.
Plug in, connect and get involved: Blue Child Collective is fast becoming a major catalyst for positive change on a global scale as more and more people join the movement and contribute to the “Culture Of Connection”.
"Blue Child Collective is connecting people through music"
"It is very rare in this business to find someone who has it all! Dan White is one of those individuals.
A fabulous singer, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer; I've never seen him do a bad show.
The music he creates connects with and inspires everyone who hears it.
Add to that a tireless drive, determination, integrity and stick-to-it attitude, all done for the right reasons and with the most infectious smile!
It won't be long until everyone will be humming along to his tune! Bravo!

We landed in Prevelly and had the pleasure of jamming with Whitey on the first night of our WA tour.
He has such a good energy and lit the place up with his resonant, soulful voice, tasty finger picking and rootsy guitar grooves - looking forward to more jams in the future!
