Welcome to the hottest club in town! Following a sold-out inaugural season, blackbox @ the edye is back with an all new lineup of under the radar jazz & blues artists. The Reverend Shawn Amos and the house band will perform at select blackbox @ the edye shows. 

About the Artist

Raised in Kansas City, Brenna Whitaker fell in love with singers from an era long-ago. “Ruth Brown, Peggy Lee, Cab Calloway, Etta James – those are my people,” says the LA-based vocalist. “I don’t know how I ended up knowing so many of their songs and standards. It’s almost like they found their way to me, like I’m from another time.” Her “larger-than-life stage presence and haunting vocals” landed Brenna a recording contract with Verve/Universal Records, and her debut self titled album was produced by the legendary David Foster. Brenna is featured on the 2015 album We Love Disney, and was a featured singer on Andrea Bocelli’s tour. She is hard at work on new music, and touring the world with The Brenna Whitaker Little Big Band.
