Album Notes

Pitt News &! More to come.

"Knee Deep In Sanity" is the first LP album released by Stephanie White and the New Jersey Philth Harmonic, a soul/rock band with elements of funk and ska. "We were really just looking to create something for people to get familiar with us and our music. It was the first group of songs we wrote together, Robbie and I, so there's no real theme to the album but it makes so much sense." The album features nine tracks, three of which were recorded acoustically in an old forge. Stephanie White and Robbie LaFalce began collaborating upon her return from Hollywood placing as one of the top twenty one overall women on American Idol, season 5. "I'd always wanted to work with him- he had a ska band, "The Miasmics", that played locally and I would go see them and just be amazed with his style of playing and then I found out he wrote much of the material. He's brilliant." The first song they wrote together, "Tough Enough," is a reflection of Stephanie's experience on Idol. "When I came home everyone was apologetic about my return and questioning what I would d o next. I told them I would make my own music and play for whoever would listen- you know- the way they used to do it. I can handle the pressures of the industry, I'm tough enough.
The most intimate song on the album is "Sustain," a rock ballad that displays the innocence and helplessness of losing a loved one to something uncontrollable. On writing the song, Robbie says: "My friend was going through a tough time, knowing that he would lose someone close to him to cancer. I wanted to write a song that portrayed the fear and realness of that experience."
Then there's the love songs- "Here We Go Again" and "Girls Have Expenses" are bluesy, R&B tunes that wail about the mistreatment of love. "You Won't Believe" is a light-hearted acoustic jam about finding your love that lives on the other side of the world- an experience Robbie found while traveling through Europe. "Teardrops" is a folk-waltz fairytale with an unhappy ending, a song based on Stephanie's first love. "Then one dark day it came/ my prince masked by his shame/ 'cause he knew he couldn't stay/ but he rescued me anyway." "You're Not Alone" is a rock jam about not being able to get through to someone because they put up their guard to the world.
"Bogged Down" is an up-tempo funk that deals with the pressure of everyday stresses. "Robbie started writing this one, and ironically enough, didn't have time to finish it. So I added the last 2 verses and we worked it out together. It's an encouraging song that everyone can relate to- everyone's racing against the clock at one time or another, or all the time."
“Rogue” is a track that Robbie wrote about a girl, by using an allegory of the Marvel Comic book character of the same name. It’s a punchy bluegrassy/pop song with a very acoustic flair, featuring upright bass and a beautiful soprano saxophone solo – Stephanie’s voice really shines as she tells the story of a woman too beautiful to be touched.
"Did I Change You" is the last track on the album. This fist-pumping disco song wails about an old love and questions whether the end of the romance was the reason for their ex's current misery. "It's amazing- the impact you can have on other people, so you have to wonder after a relationship ends, if you are the reason for that person's change in character."
What brings the album together is the incredible musicianship that all the band members bring individually to the table – putting their own flair on their own parts and making the songs come alive.

Great Listen
Every song has a unique feel and story to it. Catchy hooks and it sounds great. I'm already looking forward to the next album.
(They are even better live!)

knee deep insanity
the album was outstanding, an excellent compilation by stephanie and robbie, two people who should be proud of what they have put together so far! i had bought not one, but three of the cd's since i happen to have family who also enjoy and appreciate fine music! i know that they'll be pleased to receive the album. stephanie is a joy to write to and she sends the sweetest and most thoughtful response when writing back. the girl's sound is very comparable to joss stone and i have told her that several times. "here we go again" is excellent! hahah! once i get past this song, i'll have a listen to the others. good job steph and rob! i'm enjoying the disc up here in alaska! thanks for the music!

makes your soul smile and booty dance!~
I Love their sound, it matches my flare for a little bit of everything! They have done a wonderful job of blending sounds without sounding like they are seaching! This is a great cd for driving in your car or hanging in your house. good tunes all around!!~

This album is like a fine wine. At first you observe the color and it's texture. Then as you begin to enjoy, all the flavors that went into it. You begin to realize that this GROUP will only get better with time.

Great CD

'insanely' chill & fun!
From the first play, you're drawn into the memories & emotions this album invokes. 'Knee Deep InSanity' offers really powerful, original lyrics that cast off catchy beats with smooth horn & string melodies. On a hectic day, it’s the perfect CD to leave on repeat to calm you. ‘You Won't Believe’ and ‘Here We Go Again’ are both beautiful songs that totally speak to the frustrating passion of most relationships. The Stephanie White Band is the elusive gem that balances a confident female lead with deep, pure romance. This album has the type of sound that you force your friends to sit down and listen to because they just have to experience it (and then they steal your copy!) Can't wait to hear how they evolve in their sophomore album!

good stuff
touched a lot of different genres, styles, and concepts. so it was a toss up between thinking they were searching for a sound to thinking they were really brave creatively. on a couple of tracks, white sounded like she was trying to sound like aguilera but when she sounded like white, i loved it. on teardrops, i was thinking, "im so proud thats a jersey girl." one of my faves. cant wait to catch them live. and they couldnt have picked a cooler name. i want a tshirt.
