In The Whale Bio
In the Whale is a high energy, two piece rock band hailing from Denver, CO. Members Nate Valdez (vocals and guitar) and Eric Riley (drums and backing vocals) have been making no nonsense, balls-to-the-wall rock songs since they formed the band in 2011.
Since then, the two have stayed busy exploring the seedier sides of Denver that inspires their music. In 2012 they released their first EP, ‘Cake’, and followed it up with the EP, ‘Eric’, in the late fall of 2013. In between those two releases they played with a stupid number of artists you’d happily phone home about. In addition to sharing stages with bands like Murder By Death, Local H, Reverend Horton Heat and Electric Six in their hometown, the band has hit the road and played alongside The Airborne Toxic Event, Agent Orange, Jane’s Addiction and Slash. In the Whale released their third EP titled ‘Nate’ in April 2014 and will continue relentlessly touring until they have conquered everything.
Shawn James and the Shapeshifters Bio
Shawn James & The Shapeshifters are a 5 piece rock band from Fayetteville, Arkansas. At first glimpse, you might confuse them with a bluegrass or metal band. Influenced by every type of music, and growing up in several heavy and folky bands, the sound is not what you would expect. With a different vibe for every ep put out so far, they truly utilize the phrase “shapeshifters”.
The new album, “The Gospel According to Shawn James and the Shapeshifters” is the hardest hitting record yet. For lack of any term whatsoever, the record could be described simply as “rock and roar”. At times, it evokes both Son House and SunO)))), with haunting fiddle and plucking banjo amidst swampy, fuzz driven slide guitars. Some parts are like a fog rising from a cave, some crashing like a thunderstorm.
If you happen to catch them live, you will be surprised. The band is overflowing with passion, playing as though it’s their last chance to leave a mark on this world. It is an intense purging of sorts.
