Santogold (born Santi White) is an American songwriter, producer, and solo artist.
Santogold was lead singer of the Philadelphia-based punk rock/ska band Stiffed, whose 2003 EP, Sex Sells, was produced by Bad Brains member Daryl Jenifer. While in this group, she was offered a solo contract by Martin Heath of Marrakesh Records. Her initial singles succeeded based on heavy attention from Internet media. Working with fellow Stiffed member John Hill as co-producer, she recorded her debut album, Creator, which was originally slated for release on Downtown Records in January 2008, but was pushed back to April 2008. The album features appearances or production work from Freq Nasty, Disco D, Diplo, M.I.A, Switch, Naeem of SpankRock, XXXchange, and Clifford Moonie Pusey of Steel Pulse. Her style has been compared often to that of M.I.A. and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Additionally, she has toured with the former and Björk and worked with Lily Allen, Mark Ronson and Ashlee Simpson.
