Whitton Kicks Off Northwest Tour, Releases “Rare Bird” LP


Whitton's new LP, "Rare Bird" is available now with 10 new tracks including several co-written by Peter Fox (Rachel Yamagata) and Joe Solo (Macy Grey) and mixed by engineer Michael James (New Radicals, Hole).

Several tracks have already received feature film placements in: SHE WANTS ME (starring Charlie Sheen, Hilary Duff and Josh Gad) and METH HEAD (starring Lukas Haas, Wilson Cruz and Necar Zadegan).

About the performer: "Whitton brings a flare of the 1940's to her wishful, singer-songwriter sound. Take the sounds of an alluring Billie Holiday, mixed with the curious intensity of Norah Jones, and eclectic complexity of Regina Spektor, and you'll get the best kept secret in Los Angeles - WHITTON."

Whitton will be performing at Hotel Utah Saloon, on February 5th and in San Francisco. For tickets and more information please visit, www.whittonmusic.com
