WILLIAM ELLIOT WHITMORE (USA)
William Elliot Whitmore odrastao je na farmi konja smještenoj na obali Mississipija u saveznoj državi Iowi. Od samog početka njegov jedinstven glas kod ljudi budi asocijaciju na Toma Waitsa, dok se u pisanju pjesama inspiranih američkim jugom, kao glavni utjecaj navodi Johnny Cash. Uostalom, da bespotrebno ne duljimo, All Music je napisao jako lijepi tekst o njemu pa ga pročitajte. "With a voice that sounds like the reincarnation of an old gospel preacher from the 1920s and a fascination with sin, death and redemption to match, William Elliott Whitmore is one of the most unique artists to emerge on the Americana scene in years... His voice is the one Tom Waits has been after for years (imagine a cross between Captain Beefheart and Dock Boggs), and his folk and blues-inflected songs feel like they've been left out in the rain for months, weathered and tightened to the snapping point." All Music Guide "Whitmore writes originals, which sound timeless in a voice, which doesn't fit his comparative youth. It ought to come across as unbearably contrived, especially when you consider that Whitmore was raised on a farm on the banks of the Mississippi, but these songs speak for themselves."
