"Demo Critique"

Lockert's CD captures him performing in a two-hour session –– just
acoustic guitar and his rich, resonant voice –– and the results are
enticing. "Weddings, Funerals, Cigarettes and Booze" has plenty of
humor, while "Yours To Give" is a disarmingly direct invitation to a
potential lover. "Rupert Murdoch" is a real winner, a wry, sardonic
song that harkens back to classic socio-political protest songs.
Lockert is a promising singer/songwriter who should continue to
develop his vision. - Music Connection


Songs From an Afternoon, 2006.



Whitney Lockert is a singer-songwriter whose multi-faceted songs reveal new aspects of themselves with each listening. A prolific writer and musician, Whitney is constantly seeking to incorporate new sounds and ideas, from the sound of a novel guitar tuning to words overheard on the street. Whitney aims to push the boundaries of the traditional singer-songwriter mold even while upholding folk, blues and rock traditions. Where some singers continue to retread blues cliches about riding trains and being born for bad luck, Whitney’s blues cast a wry eye on Facebook and other pitfalls of modern life. And where many confessional songwriters pour their hearts out about the grief sometimes inherent in love and romance, Whitney examines not only the pathos but the humor in such situations. An excellent and versatile guitarist in addition to his singing and writing, Whitney has been known to perform solo, in a duo, in an acoustic trio, and in a full electric band. A full-length solo album should be available in early 2012; meanwhile, his solo EP is available at whitneylockert.bandcamp.com.
