Join us for a great night of alternative music by a rising star who started her career busking in the Pike Place Market!
Alternative Soul artist, Whitney Mongé recently released her 4th album,Carry On on November 27th 2018, and its being described as some of her best work yet. With minimal accompaniment, the stripped down acoustic EP showcases Whitney’s years of experience as a songwriter, and ability to crossover to different genres seamlessly. The album opens up with bluesy/rockabilly song “Be Mine” then immediately morphs into her signature alt soul sound with tracks Day N Nite and Wish You Waited. The EP also highlights more personal notes on Whitneys life. In tracks Born Without Wings she pays homage to her mother, and tribute to the late Chris Cornell with album title track Carry On.
Mongé learned to capture the power of authenticity while honing her skills as a street performer in Pike Place Market. With or without the elevation of a stage, each part of her performance, from the passion of her powerful, smoky voice to the intensity of her soulful guitar playing, draws listeners into an embrace within each truthful moment of song. She was raised with rhythm and blues in her blood, but while growing up in the Pacific Northwest, her music is heavily influenced by the rock scene of the 90’s coining her own genre, Alternative Soul.
Whitney was featured in the award winning film, Find Your Way: a Buskers Documentary (2014) featuring Chris Ballew of The Presidents Of The United States Of America and world renowned violinist, Joshua Bell. From supporting Ziggy Marley, KT Tunstall, and Mayer Hawthorne to headlining premiere venues in the Northwest and recently touring Europe, Whitney has made a name for herself locally and nationally.
Her four albums Heartbeat (2011), Steadfast (2014), Stone (2017), and now Carry On (2018), exhibit Mongés incredible, unfaltering journey as an artist from the ground up.
Opening up will be Yakima’s own, “Tempest NW” These young rockers hit the ground running and will always leave you in a state of awe!
