Whitney Myer is a soul singer gone rogue. Teasing the lines of R&B and rock ‘n’ roll, Myer’s electrifying live performances mesmerize audiences and have earned her featured appearances at festivals across the country including Lightning in a Bottle, The Bounce Festival and South by Southwest. Drawing inspiration from experimental musicians like Prince, Little Dragon and Bjork, Whitney Myer has shared the stage with indie artists Allen Stone, DEV, and Fitz And The Tantrums.
Whitney Myer jetted onto the national music scene after wowing Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, and Blake Shelton on NBC’s singing competition The Voice in 2012. Her rendition of Alicia Keys’ “No One” turned the chairs of all four judges in a frenzy to claim her for their teams. Later that year Whitney released her first solo EP “The Articles of Luminous Nature” which highlights not only her soulful voice but also her musical prowess as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, experimenting for the first time with electronic elements that could be recreated for live performances.
Before The Voice, Myer had performed and written songs with her longtime family band since the age of 11. Leaving the band—what she calls a “definable comfort zone”—was thus challenging but also allowed her to experiment with electronic rhythms and catchy hooks, taking her artistry to another level.
