Santi White (born September 25, 1976), better known by her stage name Santigold (formerly Santogold), is an American songwriter, producer, and singer. She worked for Epic Records as an A&R representative, but left the position to write and produce How I Do, the debut album from R&B singer Res. In 2003, her father, a lawyer involved in a Philadelphia municipal government corruption case, died.

Santigold 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 Lizard King Records. Her initial singles succeeded based on heavy attention from Internet-based media. White also appeared on Mark Ronson's 2007 album Version, performing on a cover of The Jam's.

She was forced to alter her stage name to Santigold after being seud by the jeweller/business man responsible for producing the movie Santo Gold's Blood Circus following the release of her debut solo album in 2008. The album itself was a critical and commercial success, built off the branding made in the previous year with the singles "Creator" and "L.E.S. Artistes".

During 2012, she released her second studio album, Master of My Make-Believe. « hide
