Originally from Spokane, WA, singer-songwriter, Whitney Mongé moved to the Seattle area in 2008 to pursue her career in music. She began her journey busking in the Pike Place Market,which has since led to several opportunities such as live performances on ESPN’s “Mayne Event”, The Bob Rivers Show, KSER, KYRS and an artist spotlight on the local PBS television station KTCS 9, that aired on May 30th, 2013 on the Pie series (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-nAPNsYF00).
Mongé‘s 2011 debut album, Heartbeat, snowballed into such a success that seven months later she recorded her EP Steadfast produced by Grammy Award Winner, Pete Stewart. Her raspy, sultry vocals are highly reminiscent of Melissa Etheridge and Tracy Chapman. Each album consists of the deep, introspective lyrics that Mongé is known for which you can hear on iTunes or Amazon now.
Currently, Mongé plans to release her single “Gracefully” and announce dates for her first West Coast Tour by the end of fall 2013. To find out where Whitney will be playing,
