Contemporary jazz’s most promising artist is set to release her fourth studio album.
(Atlanta, GA 4/24/2017) – Ragan Whiteside, the flautist-singer who catches the ear like few in the world of contemporary jazz can, is getting ready to make waves this May 12th with her fourth studio album, Treblemaker.
I had a fun time getting interviewed by Bill Nowicki (@wnowickiz1) for his podcast, Marietta Stories. Check it out here: http://www.mariettastories.com/jazz-flutist-and-marietta-transplant-ragan-whiteside/
You can also download it from iTunes
Debbie Burke, Jazz Author, did a nice write-up on me for her blog – which makes this the first official mention about my new album! Check it out here: https://debbieburkeauthor.com/2017/03/28/ragan-whitesides-blazing-white-hot-flute/
Here is a sneak peek of one of the tunes from my upcoming album! I have the honor of featuring The PR Experience on this tune and so for the first time, we did a Facebook Live video during the session. Check it out below…
I had the distinct honor of participating in a 2-day marathon recording session with Melba Moore! Producer/songwriter Dennis Johnson and songwriter Zoiea Ohizep created two songs for Ms. Moore’s upcoming release, Forever Moore: It’s My Time Again and I performed the background vocals. I learned so much from her about the industry (both music and theater) and of course, studio techniques. Any time I can learn from a Tony Award winning, Grammy nominated veteran is time well spent!!
I am so honored to be the Featured Artist of the Month at STL Smooth Jazz!
