One year after their debut, Whitehorse returns in epic fashion with The Fate of the World Depends on this Kiss and an invitation to play Massey Hall in 2013.
The classic tale of musical romance continues for Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland, the husband and wife duo behind Whitehorse. A string of triumphs is already in the books, including a memorable sold out appearance at Toronto's fairytale Winter Garden theatre and a sold out tour of Canada that followed.
Individually, Luke and Melissa have been recognized with awards and nominations from the Juno Awards, the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Hamilton Music Awards, the Independent Music Awards and Polaris. Together, Luke and Melissa create music that cascades forth, rushing like currents fluid and electric. More than the sum of considerable talents, Whitehorse showcases true give and take in creative partnership.
Their live show is built on mesmerizing guitar work and smoldering vocal chemistry, but also brings much more to the stage through complex layers of percussion, keyboard and telephone receiver amplification, passionately tangled like an embrace with the help of looping pedals.
