Whitney Mongé:

There are moments in a performance where an artist gets lost. Where they just let go, allowing themselves to be vulnerable and to feel across the depth and breadth of their being. It is in that state where Whitney Mongé lives and creates.

Whitney learned to capture the power of authenticity while honing her skills as a street performer. With or without elevation of a stage, each part of her performance, from the passion of her powerful, smokey voice to the intensity of a whispered lyric, draws listeners into an embrace within each truthful moment of song. Whitney was raised with rhythm and blues in her blood, but while growing up in the Pacific Northwest, her music was heavily influenced by the rock scene of the 90's coining her own genre, Alternative Soul.

With a raspy break at the edges of her rich and sultry voice, she has drawn comparisons to Alabama Shakes' singer, Britney Howard. The narratives of which she draws upon give voice to the marginalized, display the vulnerability and depth within her songwriting and call to mind artists like Tracy Chapman.

Having been featured in the award winning Find Your Way: a Busker’s Documentary (2014), and releasing a pair of critically acclaimed albums, Whitney has poured herself into a new project. Her upcoming album, Stone, captures her evolution as a performer and songwriter in a powerful way, laying bare the wonderment and restlessness of a gifted artist’s search for their place, their voice and for a sense of belonging.

Stone is set to be released on January 16th, 2017 with Whitney and her band celebrating at the Triple Door Seattle, followed by a West Coast Tour. Check out www.whitneymonge.com for dates.

Ayron Jones:

"Singer-songwriter Ayron Jones blends soul, blues, hip hop, pop, rock and about everything else into his intimate shows. Frontman of award winning band Ayron Jones and the Way, he's been on the local Seattle scene for years, playing some of the biggest festivals in the area like Sasquatch and Bumbershoot, and sharing the stage with artists like B.B. King, Los Lonely Boys and Michael Franti. He's also done work with the band Deep Cotton, supporting their label-mate Janelle Monáe at Wonderland Records and opened for The Steve Miller Band with his solo show. Come see Ayron play solo for an intimate blend of originals and covers with his acoustic guitar." http://www.ajandtheway.com/
