Whit­ney Lusk is a singer-song­writer from Utah. From the age of 8, she has been vo­cally trained by in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als. Whit­ney’s dream is for her songs to bring back the mu­sic to the mu­sic in­dus­try and touch peo­ple’s lives through the sto­ries she tells. At the age of 14, Whit­ney per­formed with a na­tional coun­try cover band that opened at mu­sic fes­ti­vals for ma­jor artists such as Kel­lie Pick­ler, LeAnn Rimes and Billy Cur­ring­ton. At age 16, Whit­ney took to the stage her­self with her own mu­sic and opened for coun­try duo Mad­die & Tae. Since then, she has opened for YouTube sen­sa­tion Andie Case with a sold-out show in Salt Lake City. She has been fea­tured on sev­eral Utah ra­dio sta­tions for be­ing one of Utah’s up-and-com­ing singers. by K. Ver­non Castle­ton.

Whit­ney trav­eled to Los An­ge­les, Calif., and at­tended a work­shop where she worked with top in­dus­try artists Col­bie Cail­lat, John Rzeznik from the Goo Goo Dolls, and Aisha Fran­cis. Whit­ney’s orig­i­nal song “Pi­casso” won her a trip to Nashville where she wrote with top in­dus­try singer-song­writ­ers on Mu­sic Row and per­formed at the fa­mous Bluebird Café.
