Chalkie White is a pure entertainer, driven by his love of music he has been touring and performing across Australia for the past 20 years. From the age of 9 when he first picked up a guitar, White has been honing his craft. At the age of 16 it was time to join a band, and by 18 talent quests were a staple for Chalkie.
