Quitting Whitney


(Not looking for members, but happy to chat collabs, management, playing live or just connecting with folks who dig our sound!)

Quitting Whitney is vocalist/guitarist/bassist Matt Rucker and drummer Ryan Linderman.

After first meeting in LA, it wasn’t long before the two teamed up to bring their respective musical impulses to life, working together to create a unique sound that blends stadium rock and whirling synth, with cutting guitar and ambient vocals, all driven by heavy-hitting powerhouse drums.

With blue collar roots powering a relentless work ethic, the duo held on through the Covid pandemic and continued to develop their sound and create new music amidst the backdrop of uncertainty.

Seeing hope on the horizon, the duo is confident that now, more than ever, is their chance to bring their genre-mashing wit, energy and rage to the main stage.
