“Whitney Ann Jenkins bowled the crowd over with her rendition of Sally Bowles. She was deliciously naughty and most pleasant to listen to.

She sings with a boldness that belies her tiny frame."             

            Sally Bowles in CABARET

“Jenkins carries much of the weight in this show, and with a strong cast such as this, she fits like a glove. Her many talents serve her well as she brings to life a very dynamic and complex part, troubled yet strong, steadfast but open to changing course when new information is revealed.”

    Brooke in OTHER DESERT CITIES

“Whitney Ann Jenkins offered up several great performances where she was both pensive and passionate. Her expressiveness draws the audience into whatever she is feeling.”

          Hope and Marvalyn in ALMOST, MAINE

"As the Lady of the Lake, Whitney Ann Jenkins impressed with her powerful singing voice."

ABOUT

Often described as passionate, adventurous, and at times, mysterious, Whitney Ann Jenkins, is a risk-taker when it comes to her craft, and her life.  

 

Born and raised in Huntington, West Virginia, from an early age, she expressed interest in performing. Whenever asked what she wanted to be when she grew up she replied,"An actress."  Everyone laughed at this because she was terribly quiet. In fact, she was so silent that in school  whenever a teacher would call on her in the classroom, her classmates would answer for her

and say "Oh, she doesn't talk." 

Breaking out of her shell, little by little, she began surprising people and continues to.  As an actress, musician, and writer, Whitney Ann is always seeking work that is both challenging and relevant, boldly bringing to light the vulnerability and truth of herself through songwriting as well as the characters she portrays.

 

Having lived and explored all over the world, she is now based in Los Angeles.

 

"Juggling multiple genres is no challenge for singer/songwriter Whitney Ann Jenkins, who adapts a chameleon-like ability to change colors on Down Stage Left, her latest effort with Her Platonic Guy Friends."

"Female singer-songwriters beware, welcome Whitney Ann Jenkins to the party."

   Music        Reviews

"Set to plaintive acoustic guitar, "Enough is Enough" is intimate and fragile. Jenkins' delicate, sorrowful voice echoes the bruised feelings of her words. The lyrics do not hold back in their sadness and anger while the music remains relatively quiet; sometimes the toughest messages are the ones delivered with a subtle touch, Jenkins sings with passion. Her vocals reach operatic heights at times, capturing the power of her message."

 "Jenkins has an emotionally unguarded voice; her feelings pour through her words, giving the album an intimate vibe. Her restless heart is incredibly appealing."
