Whitehorse formed in 2010 by husband and wife solo musicians Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland. The two toured in each other’s bands for years, but they put aside their award winning individual careers to build a new band out of their exceptional guitar playing, his and her harmonies and a flair for dramatic, narrative songwriting. Whitehorse has since been nominated for the Polaris Short List (2013), played sold out shows across Canada, and established itself in the USA as a band to watch with stellar reviews for The Fate of the World…, only their first full-length album.
“Their assurance is sexy; the songcraft, nimble. Whitehorse is the Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway of Canadian roots rock” - The Globe & Mail
