"Ellen’s voice, as always, defies belief. With a strong vocal ability she is capable of causing your nerves to tingle in excitement, while at the same time, she can come across with a gentle touch as a kitten nuzzling your cheek. From your first listen to Ellen’s breathy vocals on “The Blues Walked Through My Door” right through every spin culminating with “Thanks For The Ride,” with its Memphis Horns-styled energy, you’re going to want to take this trip with Ellen Whyte over and over again.”

--Greg Johnson, President, Cascade Blues Association

“I’m proud to say I’ve been able to work with Ellen Whyte on several projects and have always found her to be, to my delight, and incredible singer and completely professional.  She not only sings like an angel, but brings her own styling and phrasing to every song that is completely individual. Thank God for Ellen Whyte who is one of the last few who still can sing blues, pop, and jazz, and still stand up on a stage and sing big band standards with the best of them.”

--Dennis Walker, Multiple Grammy Award Winning Producer

"Ellen’s a class act. Over the years she’s turned in some of the strongest sets we’ve seen on our stages. It was great to have her back in the lineup this year.”

--Peter Dammann, Talent Coordinator, Waterfront Blues Festival

“We have had Ellen at the Jazz in the Valley festival for two years and she was the first artists we asked to perform for both nights of the event. She absolutely knocked the socks off everybody at the festival and our patrons demanded that we have her back this year. And besides, she is one sweetheart of a person to work with. Her main goal, every show was to make our festival a success.”

--Larry Sharpe, Organizer of the Ellensberg Jazz and Blues Festival

“Every time I hear Ellen Whyte, I’m amazed that she isn’t a much bigger commercial success. She’s a great vocalist, and she chooses good material and she works really hard to connect with her audience. I hope that her hard work is rewarded because she’s paid her dues.”

--Dick Waterman, Blues Historian and Former Manager to Bonnie Raitt for 19 years
