"Jonathan Widran, Reviewer"

“The supremely sensuous vocalist and songwriter Whitney Walters says
she approached the writing and recording of her lush and magical debut
Full Circle by asking herself, “If this is the only album I ever get a chance
to make, what would I want to do?” So she created a picture perfect mix
of neo soul originals, mainstream pop/rock tunes with a few inspirational
covers. Her music shows that she shares her heart willingly, expressing
her thoughts about personal and universal love in settings that will appeal
to all fans willing to give a small city girl a chance.” - Los Angeles Times

Bio

Soul. Music.

That's how I describe it. Big horns. Round, slightly-thumping bass. Cool snare. That's my vibe. I've always been soulful; the first record I ever bought with my own money was "Getaway" by Earth, Wind & Fire, and I've been funky ever since.

My favorite singers are those with distinct voices or phrasing styles: Ella (of course), Gladys Knight, Erykah Badu, Stevie Nicks, Sting, Peggy Lee, Johnny Mathis, Joe Cocker (hey, screaming is an art, too); Will Downing, Nnenna Freelon, Michael McDonald. I like hearing a song for the first time and knowing, "Hey, that's Donald Fagen" because his voice sounds unique. It's distinguishable. It doesn't sound like every other over-produced, synthetically-enhanced Top 40 voice out there.

Here's where my music and performances come in.

One of the things I hear most often from my fans is that my live performances sound "just like your CD." And to me, that's a compliment. I like the fact that audiences can expect my performances to rival what we did in the studio... every time. Mine is the case of "what you hear is what you get." My CD has a very real, live sound to it... and I like that. I even blew out the mic a little on my cover of "At Last," but we left it that way because it sounds so, well, real.

Soul. Music.

My music comes from my soul. It took many, many years for me to figure it out, but this is my soul's work I'm doing here. Music is IT. I GET it now. It comes as naturally to me as breathing. And I'd rather be singing and writing music than anything else I can think of. So here I am, ready to get my music out there, and do it with style, creativity, and a whole lotta funk.
