Katie White and the Ting Tings
Katie Rebecca White (1983) is a British musician and member of the pop duo the Ting Tings.
Katie White was raised on a farm in Lowton. When she was 12 years old, Katie's grandfather won £6.6million on the National Lottery and gave each of his three sons £1million. As well as buying ponies for Katie and Helena, David used his share of the money to start a music management company.
After some success with a girl group punk trio TKO, her father David White brought in Jules De Martino to write songs for TKO.
Katie and Jules subsequently formed the Ting Tings in 2007. The Ting Tings released their debut album, We Started Nothing, on 19 May 2008. Their follow-up album, Sounds from Nowheresville, was released on 27 February 2012.
