White is the first album by White, a band led by Yes drummer Alan White, and was released in 2006. This album had a long gestation. Alan White had previously worked with two local Seattle bands, MerKaBa and Treason. Work began on a new MerKaBa album also involving Alan and Treason keyboardist Ted Stockwell. (Hogan and Edens in the songwriting credits are former MerKaBa members.) Karl Haug (at the time, Treason's guitarist) subsequently joined the sessions too.

The MerKaBa identity was dropped and the band took on a new name, based on that of their most famous member. The band, with Stockwell (keys, guitar) rather than Downes, completed an album in mid-2004, to have been called "Loyal", and they also played a handful of live dates. However, Stockwell left and Downes joined in April 2005 and the entire album was re-recorded, re-working songs from Loyal and adding new material.
