Whitney Petty of Thunderpussy Talks About Taking it to the Next Level with Their Debut LP

Thunderpussy guitarist, Whitney Petty, can go from knee-smacking laugh to face-melting solo in less than a second. The range of her creative and emotional output astounds and the joy she exudes in conversation — whether discussing the hunt for crop circles or text exchanges with Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready — is massive.

During the past few months, Thunderpussy released its self-titled LP to rave reviews and undertook a national tour.
