With sparkly dresses, fiery tresses, and a talent only rivaled by her unstoppable hustle, Whitney Shay is one #busylittlesinger! This four-time San Diego music award winner (including Artist of the Year in 2019), and Blues Music Awards nominee is scorching stages at home, and internationally throughout Europe & South America. Although Covid paused the lives of many, Whitney along with internationally acclaimed guitarist Laura Chavez are incredibly excited to be making their Arizona debut on June 25, 2021 at the Mary Fisher Theatre.
Ms. Shay’s latest release on Ruf Records “Stand Up!” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues charts while reaching #1 on the Roots Music Report in 2020.
Whitney has received the praise of many music critics including:

“Every now and then a person comes along that changes everything, Whitney Shay is that type of human being.” — Kenneth Rexrode, Producer of the Six String Society.
Whitney will be joined by the great Laura Chavez. Commonly known as one of the finest blues, soul, rock guitarists of our generation. Laura was recently just nominated, for the 3rd time, as the best guitarist by the Blues Music Awards to be announced in May of 2021. Laura has toured the world with the likes of Candye Kane, Nikki Hill, Whitney Shay, and several others. When not busy touring she loves being a part of Six String Society productions.
