Socks Whitmore (they/them/theirs) is a gender non-conforming Los Angeles-based performer, creative, and storyteller rooted in voice and text.
As a voice over artist, Socks Whitmore has lent their voice to dozens of characters for animation, video games, audio dramas, and other storytelling mediums; notable projects include the Penguin Random House Narwhal & Jelly audiobook series, the indie games Detour Bus and Georgia, the serial audio dramas Georgie Romero Is Done For and Life with Leo(h), and more.
As a stage actor, Socks Whitmore has originated roles in shows like Children Cannot Sleep, The Bully Problem, and in their original works We Are Here and Back to One: A Coming of Self Musical. They are also known for their on-camera work as the leads of The Magical Christmas Tree and A Color Without Color.
As a lyric soprano with a four octave range, Socks’s singing style focuses on musical theater and storytelling song, but their experience ranges from pop to choral to opera to singing with electronics to free improvisation and beyond. Socks has worked as a session singer on numerous indie film sound tracks and is a current member of the CalArts Contemporary Vocal Ensemble (CVE) and the Contemporary Choral Collective of Los Angeles (C3LA).
As a composer, Socks specializes in lyrics and music for voice, most especially in musical theater. They may also be found writing music for choreographers, mixed and treble choirs, improvisatory piano, fixed media, or even small instrumental ensembles.
As a writer, Socks works primarily as a lyricist-librettist-playwright (We Are Here, Back to One, MARROW) and a narrative designer for games (Georgia, Dungeons and Dating). Socks doesn’t let genre hold them back, though; their poetry, short fiction, and op-eds have been published in several places, including American Composers Forum, the Sappho Small Talk blog, and the inaugural issue of Queer Quarterly magazine. They are also a theater critic with Stage Raw.
