"It seems like a super power to be able to carry around an old acoustic to any city, sit on a stoop, stool or sidewalk and start singing like divinity simply pours from your lips. Whitney Mongé has that super power. Her voice rattles like the wooden hull of a ship and soars like the wind in its sails. Mongé, a versatile singer capable of singing about the lonesomeness of loss or the light-hearted lift of a lit joint, came to the Emerald City from Spokane and has made a home in the area, cushioned by her prolific voice". --American Songwriter (2020)
“Whitney Mongé’s voice cracks, crumbles, aches and breaks your heart. It’s one made of 100-year-old salvaged northwest wood, complete with embossed grains, nicks, and honest imperfections". --KEXP FM (2018)
"Whitney Mongé — a former busker who started with seven cover songs and a lot of guts, a woman who writes emotional songs for people who listen to the words, a role model for young brown girls who want to play music, a super smart college dropout, an avid gardener in her neighborhood P-Patch, a weed-smoking collector of vinyl records, a better pool player than you — might just be Seattle’s next big star". --The Seattle Times (2018)
