Christopher Becker Whitley (August 31, 1960 – November 20, 2005) was an American blues singer-songwriter and guitarist.
Whitley achieved modest mainstream success, but had a devoted following. Whitley's style was rooted primarily in blues, but drew on an array of influences and was constantly changing. In 2001, the New York Times described his arc as "restless, moving into noise-rock and minimalist jazz evoking Chet Baker and Sonic Youth as much as Robert Johnson".
Din of Ecstasy is the second studio album by singer-songwriter and guitarist Chris Whitley.
It was produced primarily by John Custer and Chris Whitley. The album was recorded by Steve Melton (assisted by Danny Kadar and Kent Bruce) and mixed by Toby Wright (assisted by John Seymour) at Muscle Shoals Sound in Sheffield, Alabama as well as Baby Monster, Sony Music Studios, and Electric Lady Studios in New York City.
