How do you get from a small suburb on the outskirts of Pittsburgh to New York City's Metropolitan Room? Pat Whiteman did it with a quote.

"It's never too late to be what you might have been."

"I carried that quote with me to almost every job I had to remind me that I was a singer." Through life's bumps, curves and struggles, George Elliot's words kept reminding Pat to return to the path she knew she should have traveled all along.

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Pat danced around the living room as a little girl singing and making up lyrics while her concert pianist father accompanied her.

In 8th grade, an encouraging teacher discovered Pat's vocal ability and by high school, she began writing her own songs, winning local and regional talent contests and headlining as the lead singer of two bands. Her early college career found her in another band and performing solo coffeehouse gigs on campus and in the local community.

Pressured to choose a traditional career path, Pat reluctantly entered the corporate world but fell musically silent and rarely sang or performed. Eager to fulfill her creative desires, she began taking voice lessons and soon landed parts in theatrical productions. She went on to have starring roles in Pump Boys & Dinettes, Smoke On The Mountain, Nunsense II and Godspell. She also began teaching and coaching other singers, doing voice-overs and caught the eye of a Chicago-based producer who used her as lead vocalist on a variety of national and regional jingles.
