Ragan Whiteside is a Soul Jazz flautist, vocalist, and songwriter and she is at it, again, with her latest single, “JJ’s Strut” from her upcoming release Five Up Top. “JJ’s Strut” is a feel-good song for the ages, treating the listener to a much needed 4-minute break from the craziness of 2020.  It is the 3rd single from Ragan’s upcoming album, following on the heels of 5 consecutive Billboard Top 10 hits “Reminiscing”, “Jam It”, “Early Arrival”, “See You at the Get Down”, and Billboard #1 and Smooth Jazz Network’s song of the year “Corey’s Bop,” which made Ragan the first female flautist to hold the #1 spot on three major smooth jazz charts, simultaneously. A musical prodigy since the age of five, Ragan found her way to the flute after the piano, the violin, and a turn with the drum set. She attended the Cleveland Institute of Music and the prestigious Harid Conservatory, where her sound was honed with the tried-and-true classical training, graduating with a Bachelor of Music Performance degree. Ragan Whiteside is a resident of Atlanta, GA, and tours globally. Stay tuned for Ragan’s 5th album, Five Up Top, to be released in Summer 2020! Five Up Top is Soul-Jazz Flautist Ragan Whiteside’s 5th studio album, showcasing a collection of 5 songs with funky grooves and soulful melodies that are Ragan’s signature sound.

Ragan Whiteside, the flautist-singer who catches the ear like few in the world of contemporary jazz can, is getting ready to make waves this May 12th with her fourth studio album, Treblemaker.

A favorite of well-known stages such as Capital Jazz, Whiteside’s sound brings to mind the stylings of Najee and Dave Valentin. The preceding album, Quantum Drive, has received major airplay and acclaim by such publications as Jazz In M.E.E., and was described as “an enchanting and vibrant album” by Hans-Bernd Hülsmann of smooth-jazz.de. As its successor, Treblemaker promises a further expanse of Whiteside’s variety and style. Frank McComb, Kim Waters, Marion Meadows, and Tom Browne make their appearances on the album to lend their touch to a well-seasoned musical mix.

Whiteside is not one to shy away from shaking up expectations. In contemporary jazz, where there is always a thirst for fresh material, she steps up and delivers, both in studio recording and on live stage. “Her tenacity makes her a force to be reckoned with. Mark my words!” said Bob Baldwin of her once, and this tenacity is obvious at every show and in every track. “We need new music!” the fans say, and Ragan Whiteside is always up to deliver exactly what they ask for. Still a New Yorker at her core and in her every note, Ragan Whiteside brings no shortage of sound to shake up some perceptions of what a flute – and a jazz artist – can do.
