Whitmore has recorded a number of albums released on Southern Records, and now[when?] is a member of the Anti Records family. 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, by paying, for example, a homage for the worldwide spread icon of Bad Religion.[clarification needed]
Whitmore has toured with Chris Cornell,[not specific enough to verify] City and Colour, The Pogues, Murder By Death, Clutch, Lucero, Converge, Red Sparowes, Modern Life is War, Frontier Ruckus, Frank Turner and The Low Anthem.
