Santogold’s eponymous debut has earned her a lot of attention from critics and fans since its release in April.

The album runs the gamut, from the new wave sounds of “L.E.S. Artistes” to the ska-influenced “You’ll Find a Way” to “Creator,” which flirts with reggaeton and electro-clash.

The variety is understandable, considering the singer credits a wide array of influences, including Nina Simone, Devo, Bad Brains, Talking Heads, The B-52’s and Lee Perry. The disc also features an impressive lineup of guests like M.I.A., Diplo and Spank Rock’s Naeem Juwan and XXXchange.

White’s rise on the music scene is almost certainly helped by the fact she’s seen the business from the other side of the glass, having done a stint as an A&R rep for Epic Records before she was persuaded to quit in 2001 to write and executive produce an album for R&B rocker Res.

But that experience, coupled with her next musical venture – fronting the punk band Stiffed, which released two albums – and co-writing with wunderkind producer Mark Ronson for Lily Allen, left her feeling she had more to offer.

“The band really just broke up,” White told Pollstar. “I had been feeling a bit stifled by that point though, so it was a welcome change.

“After my first time writing for another artist I knew that it wasn’t something I’d be happy making a full career out of. When you’re working on someone else’s art, you don’t get to express yourself. I feel like writing for other people is a job that I’m good at, but writing for myself is my art.”

Besides critics and the music buying public, White’s art has caught the attention of the advertising community, with songs like “L.E.S. Artists,” “Lights Out” “Creator” and “Say Aha” currently featured in commercials for a number of products, including Bud Light Lime and the Ford Flex.
