White Town is a musical act from the United Kingdom, and is the work of one man, Jyoti Mishra.
Mishra was born in Rourkela, Orissa, India on 30 July 1966 and has lived in England since the age of three. White Town is often regarded as a one-hit wonder for its 1997 song "Your Woman", which reached #1 in the UK Singles Chart in January of that year, and #23 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
White Town was formed by Mishra in 1989 after he saw Pixies play. Initially there were other members on guitar, bass and drums playing support gigs for various bands including Primal Scream. In 1990 he released his first self financed record, White Town EP, on 7" vinyl.
Mishra, a straight edger and ex-Marxist, often incorporates political concerns in his songs veiled in terms of personal relationships.
