Trevor White started playing in a band called The A-Jaes. He met Marc Bolan in 1967, and when Bolan quit John's Children, the band asked Trevor White to join. He agreed but before he got a chance to rehearse with them, John's Children had broken up.
Then Trevor White met singer and guitarist Ian "Ralf" Kimmet and with bassist Ian Hampton and drummer Chris Townson (ex-John's Children) they put The Jook together. The band was managed by John Hewlett (ex-John's Children too) who secured a record deal with RCA. John Hewlett was also the manager of Sparks, and this connection led to Trevor join Sparks in 1974.
Trevor White played live and toured with Ron & Russ Mael and recorded Sparks' "Propaganda" (1974) and "Indiscreet" (1975) albums. Soon after this album, Sparks dismissed : the Maels returned to Los Angeles to form a new band and Trevor White, bassist Ian Hampton and drummer Norman "Diamond stayed in Great Britain and rehearsed for a week at Island Studios with guitarist Adrian Fisher. Unfortunately, this proved not conclusive, and they decided not to pursue any further development of the project.
Trevor White joined Jet (10) mark II from August 1975 up to August 1976 replacing guitarist Davy O'List. Several demos were recorded, but the band fell apart. Trevor White cut a solo single for Island and in April 1977 co-produced the first single of Radio Stars which he joined soon after. He stayed in Radio Stars until September 1979.
In 1980, Trevor White hooked up with a new band, The Four Squares, wo were in fact five : guitarist Chuck "Bob Davies" Wagon, Norman "Dinky" Diamond on drums, Adrian Fisher on lead guitar, Trevor White on bass and manager John Hewlett on lead vocals. Songs were recorded in the now defunct Bearsville Studios, N.Y. but the project failed because guitarist Chuck Wagon died before the recordings were finished and before the band had played live. Some of the rough mixes from the sessions surfaced in 2007.
Trevor White reunited with Martin Gordon, singer Andy Ellison, guitarist Boz Boorer and drummer Chris Townson in 2000 for the Jet "Nothing To Do Tour".`
Trevor's latest project is named Anytime and he's also compiling an album containing unreleased tracks plus other home and studio recordings to be titled "Music Of White Origin".
