Artist:  Carlos Whittaker

Title:  Ragamuffin Soul

Label:  Integrity Music

Carlos Whittaker is a multi-faceted man.  Experienced as pastor, creative coach, web junkie—a self-proclaimed title that belies his national blog popularity—and one-time LA Ink celebrity, the seeker-minded entrepreneur now adds singer/songwriter to his diverse resume.  Lyrically channeling his spiritual thoughtfulness into a modern musical mix, Whittaker's debut package is a worthy competitor for his worship contemporaries.  And although it lacks the defining originality of its creator, Whittaker's history in church traditions and recent roles enriching congregations nationwide with his informal spiritual sense makes his musical beginning a valuable exploration.
