Said The Whale
In the five years since Said The Whale formed, the band's hook-heavy, pop-rock sound has propelled them to successes that include a nationally televised documentary, a JUNO Award, and a seemingly endless series of tours. In an age of overnight internet sensations, the band continues to win over audiences the old fashioned way: with relentless touring, killer songs, and big-hearted passion. After uniting in early 2007, dual frontmen Tyler Bancroft and Ben Worcester released the EP Taking Abalonia (later reissued with seven new songs as the debut full-length, Howe Sounds/Taking Abalonia). After the addition of drummer Spencer Schoening, and keyboardist Jaycelyn Brown, Said The Whale released Islands Disappear in '09. The teaser EP New Brighton arrived in fall 2011, along with new bassist Nathan Shaw. In March 2012, the band released their latest full-length Little Mountain. As always, singers Bancroft and Worcester retain their unique voices, but their work has never sounded so cohesive.
