Calling all nomads, road-trippers, and country kids… Whitney’s bittersweet falsetto pitches the uncertainty of youth against a wariness of adulthood. Two ex-Smith Westerns joined song-writing forces in Chicago in 2015, evolving into a six-piece band that became festival heavyweights before their 2016 debut Light Upon The Lake arrived. Whitney wrote the sun-kissed country-folk album in a snowy log cabin, a contrast heard in the music itself, bright melodies shrouding lament and loss. With a lick of horns, rolling guitar, and whispers of Neil Young, Whitney’s slender Americana will get you aching for that open road.
