Whitney Mann on Java Blend July 20, 2012
Taking inspiration from her youth on a grain farm in rural Michigan, Whitney Mann released her debut EP, The Way Back Home, and garnered much attention in Madison, Wisconsin and quickly enticed the ears of listeners elsewhere. After the EP’s release in 2009, Mann performed with headliners Willy Porter and Bettye LaVette and was a musical guest on Michael Feldman’s Whad’Ya Know? on NPR and Wisconsin Public Television’s 30 Minute Music Hour.
With her countrified-folk, singer/songwriter style, Mann won New Artist of the Year at the 2010 Madison Area Music Association awards and has twice opened for Willie Nelson.
