Felix White is a musician, author and broadcaster.
His debut book, ‘It’s Always Summer Somewhere’, a memoir on a life lived through the love of cricket and music while processing young grief, is a Sunday Times Bestseller and has received widespread praise and plaudits from revered names across the arts and sports worlds, including Stephen Fry, Pete Paphides and Toby Jones.
Felix‘s band, The Maccabees, released four studio albums before disbanding at their commercial peak after a number one album, major festival headline shows and an Ivor Novello award. He has since worked as a composer on film scores and co-founded independent record label ‘Yala!’, which has worked for five years on finding opportunity for young artists. It has since established regular live nights across London, Manchester and Glasgow and released a wide range of new music.
He also co-hosts BBC cricket podcast Tailenders with Greg James and Jimmy Anderson. The show recorded 9 million listens/downloads in 2020 and won Best Live Show at the British Podcast Awards. Their UK tour in 2021 includes a Hammersmith Apollo show. Felix ghost wrote Jimmy Anderson’s book ‘Bowl. Sleep. Repeat’, which was a bestseller and nominated for the William Hill Sports book award, and also occasionally presents specialist music shows for BBC 6 music.
