Iʼm super excited that my good friend Alain Whyte was able to take the time to do an interview and performance for Down The Highway. Not only is Alain the nicest guy in the world, but he is an immense talent. Alain plays guitar riffs that I could never do on my best day with no effort at all! He and I have played in a band together and have done some songwriting/recording together. I have to tell you that his knowledge of music and how it works is vast. Itʼs an absolute pleasure to work with Alain in any capacity with music. I will say that when I first started working with Alain, I was absolutely intimidated by his talent, but he is so humble about his ability that you just simply forget who you are working with. Alain and I have very similar taste in music and I think that makes it very easy for us to produce songs that make us both excited. He is very complimentary about my “ability”, but I always think to myself, “Who the fuck am I for Alain Whyte to compliment me?” Whatever my insecurities are, doesnʼt matter! Alain is a fantastic person to work with.
I wanted to include Alain in the “Los Angeles” episode, because he is originally from England and spent most of his music career living there. It wasnʼt until just a few years ago that he decided to make Los Angeles his home. For someone to move across an ocean to be somewhere they think is the place to be for their career is very interesting to me. Alain will sum it all up for you in the “Los Angeles” episode of Down The Highway!
