After releasing 4 EPs from 2011-2013, releasing their first full-length LP in 2015, and releasing their most successful single to date in 2016, Northern Whale, the alternative/indie/pop band from Youngstown, OH, has been on a roll since their inception back in 2008 with an average age of just 13. Since then, Northern Whale has performed in various venues around the country such as House of Blues and Hard Rock Café in Cleveland, OH, Nationwide Arena District for the Fashion Meets Music Festival in Columbus, OH, Water Street Music Hall in Rochester, NY, Freemont Street and The Linq in Las Vegas, NV, and House of Blues, Sunset Gower Studios, and Whiskey A Go Go in Hollywood, CA among other places. Northern Whale has also had the opportunity to share the stage with several famous acts like St. Vincent, Awolnation, Ludacris, Young The Giant, Taking Back Sunday, O.A.R., Bahamas, Andy Grammar, Lights, Attack Attack, The Devil Wears Prada, Machine Gun Kelly, Michael Stanley, Foxy Shazam, Bootsy Collins, Zach Myers (Shinedown), Bully, Spoon, Milo Green, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, ZZ Ward, Allen Stone, Rachel Platten, Soja, Vesperteen and Robert DeLong.
As far as Northern Whale’s musical style, it has evolved and matured just as the band members have themselves. The instrumentation is diverse and creative, with lyrics deep and thought provoking that can strike a chord on any average music goer’s heartstrings. The most successful release from the band by far, “DEEP”, has garnered over 200,000 plays on Spotify and continues to serve as a crowd favorite during their live set.
Their latest full length album, Until I'm Found, is a project around 3 years in the making. Northern Whale's 2nd album was meticulously crafted to be the best possible product it could be, and this is apparent in the music. Until I'm Found is a project well beyond the band's years and has the ability to resonate with the masses.
Northern Whale has continued to write and release new music. Follow the band on social media and stay up to date with the latest releases.
