With her soulful voice and gypsy spirit, Whitney Layne isn’t just pursuing her life-long dream, she is doing it! Everyday. She can captivate an audience with her passionate lyrics and soulful voice but also thrives on getting a crowd moving and grooving with her fun, energetic personality.
At 16, Whitney wrote and recorded “The Perfect Man” which raced up the Independent Top 40 Charts, catapulting her career as an artist/songwriter. In 2006, Whitney was a Western Regional Finalist for the Colgate Country Showdown. She won the 2007 Star of the West competition with her singing & songwriting talents.
