This vivacious young woman has been making a name for herself crossing multiple genres; singing sultry torch songs, powerful blues & soul, and swingin' tunes that dancers can't seem to get enough of!

Whitney finds inspiration in a large range of music from the blues and jazz of Bessie Smith & Billie Holiday in the '20s and '30s, to the R&B and Soul of Etta James & Sam Cooke in the 50s and 60s; and her musical performances reflect this variety.  Whitney is a hard working and versatile performer, and you can find her singing with anything from a jazz duo to quartet, belting out some high energy swingin' blues and R&B alongside San Diego legends like Robin Henkel, fronting a 13 piece Big Band, or working in various configurations with some of the most talented musicians in town!  

Whitney has been making quite an impact as the little girl with a big voice who knows how to truly engage a crowd. You can't help but smile and tap your feet when you see what joy she brings to the stage!
