Whitmore first released albums on Southern Records and later on ANTI-. His act consists mostly of playing the banjo or guitar while singing, though on occasion he performs a cappella. While he has earned much acclaim from the folk, blues and alt-country communities he is also rooted in the hardcore punk community, for example by playing on a homage to Bad Religion.
