Ellen Whyte

“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
