BBC Northampton

BBC Radio Shropshire


'Difference personified, eclecticism defined... Whalebone deliver music that’s sensitively serious, delicately defined, cleverly constructed and utterly original. The blend is marvellously mixed ... rock touching folk, classical caressing tradition, innovation dancing with legacy ... an amalgam of alchemy... Whalebone is the creation of three musicians, who through hybrid musical journeys reached a place where individual paths of musical expression coalesce to engender a creature of unique pedigree...aurally mouth-watering.'
