Recorded at Capitol Studios alongside collaborators John Sawoski and GRAMMY® and Emmy Award-winning composer Michael Patterson [Beck, The Notorious B.I.G.], together, they’ve created a love letter to the Great American Songbook featuring classics such as “It Had To Be You,” “S’Wonderful,” “Can’t We Be Friends,” and many more. Track listing for Can’t We Be Friends below.
“When I put together the song list for this album, My Favorite Year was at the very top of the list. Who hasn’t reminisced about their favorite year, their first love, or a time in the past when they were younger or more carefree? I chose it for my debut single because I believe people will relate to the song,” shares Whitmore. “It speaks to the poignant experience of remembrance…not to mention that Michele Brourman’s music and Karen Gottlieb’s lyrics are gorgeous.”
