Oh Whitney
Oh Whitney
Oh Whitney is a rock band. 'Rock' being, in this case, the indie kind. And alt-country. And some jazz + metal lurking in the drummer, rhumba in the bass player. Guitars more from the zeppelin angle. Songs written mostly from a blues + folk viewpoint. All that = what exactly?
A little geographical context : Jose Juan Poyatos (Malaga, Spain) plays lead guitars. Diego Noyola (Monterrey, Mexico) plays bass. Adrien Lorca Faunce (Nadal, France) plays the drums. Peter More (Fort Worth, TX) sings, plays more guitars and octophone.

Oh Whitney has been described as a genre-blurring band, marrying new and old styles across the great divide of rock, blues, bluegrass, folk and old country. Old country as in : Hank, Merle, Willie, Townes. The band has been all over the map and experienced several incarnations since their first lineup at Duke University in 2008. They cut their teeth performing in and around NYC throughout 2008-2010, while also playing down the east coast and into central Mexico, where they began working and recording with Rick Shlosser (of Van Morrison, James Taylor, Dolly Parton). After the better part of 2011 spent living and playing throughout Texas, the music took refuge in Puerto Rico for a stint and the band soon found themselves touring in Brazil by 2012. With an arsenal of new songs, Oh Whitney returned to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, to record their forthcoming album due out Winter of 2012.
Gospels is Alex Frenkel, Mike Gordon, Alex Marans, Gabe Garzón-Montano and Owen Murphy. Taking up residence under one roof in Forest Hills, NY, they set about building their house into a 3-floor recording studio, where they have recorded their first EP, "Animal Feelings."
