Talon Winery Logo

Whitney Lyn Acke is a singer/songwriter from Lexington, Kentucky. With her greatest influences being Patty Griffin and Jewel, her unique sound creates a contemporary, country-folk experience, quickly identifiable as being her very own. Often referred to by her songwriting peers as the “Modern Day Loretta Lynn”, Whitney is a small-town woman with a passion for touching people with her music. Upon her trusty old guitar, she writes music full of raw emotions about love, life, family, home and faith, striving to reach every listener and connect with their soul, from the first verse through the ending chorus. Whitney is a published songwriter. She plays regularly all around Central Kentucky and surrounding areas , easily packing patios, bistros, bars, coffee houses and festivals wherever she goes. Her laid-back style, earthy vocals, humble attitude and truly authentic personality make her instantly likable. She’s merely a “real” woman, singing about “real” things.
