"This album reflects my journey up to this point," explains the Australian born, Rudd. "Over the last few years I've been gifted strong connections with some powerful old spirits from parts of this earth and some have offered their voice and sacred knowledge of their ancestors to this album. Which for me is an honour beyond words."
- Xavier Rudd
Xavier and co-producer Dave Ogilvie (David Bowie, Marilyn Manson and N.E.R.D.) recorded the bulk of White Moth in the woods of British Columbia's Sunshine Coast at Gggarth Richardson's studio, The Farm. However, the disc counts the voices of Aboriginal people captured in Arnhem Land – and boasts members of the esteemed Aboriginal musical group Yothu Yindi on a number of tracks.
Joined by percussionist Dave Tolley – a guest on Food In The Belly turned new addition to Rudd's line up – White Moth also finds guest player Panos Grames (who lent his wares to Food In The Belly track "Mother Earth" and is the right hand man to esteemed Canadian environmental scientist and activist David Suzuki) in tow. First Nations Cree elder Kennitch also traveled from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to the White Moth sessions and can be heard lending traditional healing prayers and drum to "Foot Print" and "Message stick."
