Walk the whale
Walk the Whale are songwriters, musicians and performing artists who give us honest and clever songs in a sophisticated multi - instrumental sound.
Flowing in the genres of alt-rock and folk, their layered compositions offer thoughtful, provoking songs capturing shared experiences.
What results is heart-filled artful music that addresses the challenges and melancholy that life deals us, while simultaneously giving us a lesson and a way out. The compositions are masterful, with precise and perfect flow, translated through the instrumentation of keyboards, cello, violin, bass, guitar, and drums.
“We make music we’d want to hear. We're tougher critics than anyone about our music. So, the audience can trust that we're not messing around up there. Maybe someday we'll get looser with our forms, like the great jazz and jam bands out there. But for now, our music nerd selves are enjoying the sound of everything we've learned about music being turned into songs we're proud to share.”
