TICKETS FOR ALL SHOWS GO ON SALE FRIDAY 28 OCTOBER 9AM AEST.
Lead single ‘No Woman’ is a beautiful folk-inspired number, where vocalist and drummer Julien Ehrlich’s candid falsetto floats over Whitney’s big band sound.
Whitney is built around the discerning songwriting talent of Julien Ehrlich and Max Kakacek, who started off as members of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Smith Westerns, and expand to an epic 6-piece when they play live. They make Classic Americana for a modern world - twangy guitars, soothing percussion and anthemic horns, underscored by youthful and sincere lyrics.
Light Upon The Lake is one of Elton John’s favourite albums of 2016, read his interview with Whitney here.
Joining Whitney for both shows is Melbourne’s Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, whose rich poppy guitar melodies and propulsive rhythm have already earned them praise with international scope.
