A person's first love is always remembered, and for Whitnie Means, that first love was music. She fell in love at eight years old when she first picked up the guitar, and that love has grown and changed throughout the years.
One would never guess that Means's roots are firmly planted in Bluegrass music. Her first performance was at eight years old at the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival in Winfield, KS. As she got older, her style began to take on a country feel. At the age of thirteen, Whitnie had the pleasure of opening for the Charlie Daniels Band in Wichita, KS.
At fifteen, this country artist's music transformed again after teaching herself the piano. This is when her writing began to take form and she truly found her sound. She feels as though her songs still have elements of her country background but with an adult contemporary feel to them.
"I write from my heart. If I could touch just one person out there with my music, then I have lived a successful life," Means said.
Whitnie is currently in the process of recording, and hopes to release some new songs very soon.
