Chris White's first real break in the music industry came in 1981 when he was asked to play on Nick Heyward's album " North Of A Miracle ". Following this success, his reputation continued to build, being asked to play and record with artists such as Paul McCartney, Aztec Camera, The The and Mark Knopfler, the latter leading to what he is best known for - the saxophone sound of Dire Straits. His work with the band included the "Brothers in Arms " and " Every Street " World Tours, the " On Every Street " and " On The Night " albums, and the legendary " Live Aid " and " Mandela " concerts. More recently, Chris has also guested on two of Mark Knopfler's solo albums. Outside of this association, he has recorded and toured with many artists, including Joe Cocker, Ray Charles and Robbie Williams. He is now also assembling material for his second album of original work as well as performing live around the world with "The Straits"
