ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A New England native, Whitney spent many a frozen afternoon after high-school smoking too many cigarettes and hanging out with the band dudes, sometimes singing, but often relegated to the role of "tambourine-girl ". So, at seventeen, she bought a guitar. While the boys mimicked Jerry Garcia and Eric Clapton, Whitney balanced the male rock influences with the soulful likes of Joni Mitchell, Ricki Lee Jones, and Janis Joplin. Further inspiration came from witnessing Leo Kottke perform, and probing Portland singer-songwriter Darrien Brahms about writing, a tenacious poet and guitarist who was ass-kicking her way through a male-dominated music scene.

Upon moving to Los Angeles, Whitney co-founded the well received band Beattrix Monqué with Kentucky guitarist David Guy (Born Cross-Eyed). After a few years, she struck out on her own and formed an alliance with producer Marc Doten (Carlos Guitarlos) to record Bring On The Rain, her first full-length album.

Bring On The Rain chronicles a journey from suffering to bliss, anger to acceptance, madness to clarity. It's organic, emotional sound spans folk-pop and roots-rock, with touches of soul and world music. Whitney's vocals have been compared to Fionna Apple and Patti Griffin, while the music travels along a continuum from The Band to Led Zepplin. Intimate and forceful, Bring On The Rain tells a tale of longing, surrender, and renewal, that begs the listener to go deeper.

In 2003 Whitney penned the song Sahanna Lee, helping the independent short Waiting For Johnnie Walker, written and directed by Kerry Logan, to win Best Score at the New York Film Festival.

A beautiful voice, a wonderful journey, a great listen !
Whitney's BRING ON THE RAIN is well written and composed, a journey through time from suffering to bliss. She has a strong and beautiful voice with great guitar playing and backup music to convey her story. It's well worth the listen, again and again. Bravo!! May we hear more to follow.

A CD you can keep on "Repeat" all day long.
Whitney Cline's BRING ON THE RAIN is one of those CD's that sneaks up on you. On first play, you think "This is nice..." By the third play, you're hooked & you've got a favorite song you're waiting for. By the fifth play, you've got 2 or 3 favorites. (Mine are tracks 6,9,10 & 12... as of now...) It's just plain old Good Music. Words you can sing along to, beats that keep running through your head, a voice like smooth velvet. All-occasion music. Simply put: I love it!

Whitney Cline has star appeal!
Whitney Cline is a strong, passionate vocalist supported by stellar musicians who add bass, cello, drums, piano, organ and more guitars to the mix. Whitney writes intelligent, insightful songs about duality and journeys. Her influences include The Grateful Dead, Joni Mitchell and other classic rockers. Whitney incorporates old style into contemporary well-arranged compositions. Clines' music is a soulful blend of folk, pop, roots rock and world. 'Bring On The Rain' flows on Whitney's sultry vocals and innovative instrumentation. The slide and subtle whah-whah guitars add country and blues to mix as the piano and B3 add a southern jazz flavoring. 'Closer To You' is a haunting song about a painful relationship. Cline's vocals are full of emotion and powerful in its range. The gentle tempo and guitars add to the aching sentiment of the song. Bring On The Rain is the type of CD that just keeps growing on you as the songs are multi-layered both lyrically and instrumentally. Whitney's music has wide range appeal and Cline has star appeal!
