ANGIE WHITNEY- AN INSPIRING STORY:
Let’s take a trip back to the future and twist and shout into the 60’s and catapult ourselves into the early 70’s when Motown was king and girl groups like Diana Ross and The Supremes and The Ronettes ruled the charts.
Angie Whitney was an aspiring singer living in Los Angeles with her twin sister, Rachel and her cousin, Yvonne. The twins had been singing together since they were 4 years old. Angie was shy but loved to get up and sing in front of people.
Angie, her twin sister and her cousin started singing back-up for The Spinners who charted 5- Top 100 singles and 2- Top 10 hits. They were one of the biggest Soul groups of the 1970’s. The Spinners classic songs such as: “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love”, “Ghetto Child”, “Working My Way Back To You”, “The Rubberband Man” and more are considered Pop classics....
Often, adult contemporary feels more like adult ancient, but there's no tired beatmaking or saccharine production in Whitney's debut disc. Instead, we hear husky soul vocals bring an earthiness to sharp synth beats and airy saxophone. It's all the mellow with none of the dull.
