Nice Interview With Suite 101!


SINGER-SONGWRITER WHITTON 
Singer-songwriter Whitton talks to Suite101 about her new album "Rare Bird" and her upcoming concert on August 16, 2012, in New York City's The Living Room.

On Wednesday, August 1, 2012, Suite101 chatted via phone with pop singer-songwriter Whitton. Throughout her career, she has recorded with such producers as David Hauser, Kevin White and Ronan Chris Murphy. Several tracks from her previous, self-titled EP were featured in such film as The 5th Quarter (starring Aidan Quinn and Ryan Merriman), as well as Exit Strategy.

“Rare Bird”
Her newest album Rare Bird was released independently and it features ten tracks, several of which were co-written by Ian Coyne, Peter Fox and Joe Solo, the latter of which has worked with Grammy winner Macy Gray. “I am fortune to have worked with so many great writers and producers on this project,” she says.

Similar to her EP, several songs from this album were featured in such film as She Wants Me, which stars Charlie Sheen and Hilary Duff, as well as Meth Head. “That was a lot of fun. It’s exciting when your songs get placed in different places,” she says.

Nominations and Awards
Thanks to the critical acclaim derived from Rare Bird, she garnered a nomination for an 2012 Independent Music Award (IMA) in the “Best Pop Album” category. “That was really cool and it opened a few doors for me,” Whitton says.
If the IMA nod was not enough, she was also named “Best Female Acoustic Rock Artist” by the New York Music Festival. “That was great! Any time you win an award or are nominated for one, it reassures that this is exactly that you should be doing. It’s nice to get some recognition from time to time,” she says.

The Living Room in New York City
On August 16, 2012, Whitton is expected to perform at The Living Room in New York City. “I heard so many great things about that venue and I have been looking forward to playing there forever,” she says. “I have some great players who live in New York who will perform there will me.”

Whitton Featured on “Dexter”
In addition to her musical endeavors, Whitton has been featured as a guest vocalist on Showtime's Emmy-nominated television hit series Dexter. “I got to work with one of the show’s music producers. He called me to do some background vocals on a couple of theme songs for the show and its soundtrack,” she says.

Germany's Style Desk Review

I got a nice write up in Germany's Style Desk Review! (Scroll down): http://styledesk.org/2012/07/30/favorite-songs-7/ 

Here's the translation: Breit at the age of six, began to sing and perform with the Whitton. A native of Los Angeles artist exudes an easy charm of 40's, which is reflected not only in their outfits. Attentive fans of the series 'Gossip Girl', are likely to have heard the odd song from her. For everyone else there is her song 'Turn Of The Light'.

TWO New York performances to come!!


Looking forward to my New York performances @ the Living Room on Aug. 16th and Rockwood Music Hall on Aug. 24th. Sharing the stage with: Milano, Shane Alexander, Chris Pierce, Daniel Kahn and The Painted Bird, Bryan Dunn, Arthur Alligood, Putnam Murdock, Gabriel Rios and Aaron Dugan! Don't miss these shows!!

The voice behind 'Rare Bird': An interview with Whitton

The voice behind 'Rare Bird': An interview with Whitton

As you play the first few seconds of “Turn Off The Light,” the first track on singer-songwriter Whitton’s Rare Bird, you can tell that you’re in for a new kind of musical adventure.  Her voice – which she honed with the help of her sister – is unique and versatile.
Rare Bird is a big step forward for Whitton, who says she didn’t have a definitive plan for what she wanted the record to sound like.  “..[Producer Ian Coyne] and I kinda just jumped in and explored writing and molding. The instrumentation is built around the core of the tune. I’ve always been a fan of 40′s music, brass, strings and upright bass.”
You can hear those influences throughout the record. “I feel like I’ve really found myself as an artist and a vocalist,” Whitton said.  Songs like “Pity Party” and “Better Days” have a very nostalgic 1940’s feel with their plush instrumentation and vocals.
Having grown up in a musical family, finding her place as a musician was “like butter on toast,” she said, “like I was born to do it.”  She must’ve been, since she’s been singing since she was a mere six years old.  Though growing up in Reno and going to Catholic school with no music courses was not the most ideal place for someone like Whitton to explore her talent, she found her niche in community theater with her siblings.
Now that she’s living in California, playing shows and sharing the stage with the likes of Jason Mraz and Amber Rubarth, Whitton has had more opportunities to share her music with the world.
After playing several live shows around the country, including one at our very own Benaroya Hall in Seattle, Whitton says she’s ready to incorporate the live experience on her next record.  “Recording [Rare Bird..] was truly a great experience, but the next time around I want everything recorded live. There’s something about the energy that is created while it’s live and people feel that, even through a recording,” she explained.
Whitton brings a unique sound to the table and one thing is for sure: she’s not going anywhere.
If you had to name 3 of your favorite albums of all time, which would you choose and why?
Peter Gabriel US, Thom Yorke Eraser and Gotye Making Mirrors. Each one of these albums haven’t been tainted by a bad experience. I can listen to them over and over again.
