About the Author
His lifelong association with the music business began professionally as a sixteen-year-old recording artist signed to Imperial Records. With his band, The Imperial Show Band, he recorded over twenty singles for a number of labels, including Epic, Ace, Capitol, Sue, Island, Musicor, Imperial, and others.
In 1966, at the peak of tensions in Mississippi over civil rights, Whitsett introduced two new singers to his band, Tommy Tate and Dorothy Moore, both black, and both later to achieve chart acclaim as solo artists.
From 1970, Whitsett has been a music publishing executive in the U.S. and London with Stax Records, Chrysalis Music, Warner/Chappell Music, and Malaco Music, managing song catalogs that included works by David Bowie, Jethro Tull, The Chieftains, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Chuck Berry, George Gershwin, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Otis Redding, Al Green, and Isaac Hayes, among others.
Whitsett has authored three music-publishing textbooks and a dictionary of music business terms, in addition to offering consulting services for music publishers and copyright investors.
