Call in to speak with the host
On Today's interview with Seattle Street performer, Whitney Monge', we'll talk about what it's like to go busking in the Emerald City.
This acoustic soul artist began her musical journey at the tender age of 11, but didn't break out on the scene until 2008 when she began playing her music to the throngs of shoppers in Pikes Market. We'll ask Whitney about the money, the perceptions, and what it takes to be successful in a live, busy venue.
Although Whitney still performs on the streets of Rain City, and has become a favorite there, she has also moved her performance to the stage, playing major venues around the Seattle area.
She also volunteers her time to help young girls find their own LOUD rock-n-roll voices--teaching them how to find the music and their mojo at Rain City Rock Camp for girls! It's a project we love and can't wait for you to learn about. (Trust me, if you're a woman, you'll wish you could have gone.)
We love this lady's voice and original music and we'll be playing it for you all throughout the show. We'll showcase songs from her two original albums, Heartbeat and Steadfast, which can be found on iTunes or www.whitneymongemusic.com.
Whitney is tough, true and beautiful, inside and out, and we know you'll love tuning into this conversation and getting to know her.
It's good to talk.
