Style Profile: Whitney Moore
Snake Dance is an apt name for the Portland psych rock band fronted by Whitney Moore. Whitney embodied their sound from the moment she opened the door in a floor length coral muumuu, artfully arranged braids flying framing a rosé lipped smile- hypnotizing, playful, powerful. A classically trained singer from age 6 to 18, the death of her partner pushed her to start the band and fully commit herself to her artistry. Some of Whitney’s influences include Bjork and Erykah Badu and you can hear it in the effortless raw emotion and technique her voice brings to the tracks of their first EP, Boom. Her boyfriend, Jake Satterthwaite, also sings on the EP and delivers searing and subtle guitar riffs with lush layers of composition.
You can catch them playing on Halloween at the Pegasus Project and you can join us both at the zine release party for THIS ISSUE (she is a contributor), at the Cat Castle Gallery on November 9th.
