Artist discography


Whitehorse is a Canadian duo featuring Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland, individually, they 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 the Polaris Prize. Together, their debut album Whitehorse sounds like something that could´ve been created as a collaboration between PJ Harvey and Neil Young. The track "Killing time is murder" can be described as New Orleans gospel the Led Zeppelin style or the song "Passenger 24" sounds more like an alternative country/folk version of White Stripes. The beautiful "Emerald isle" is one of the best songs on the album along with the nice cover of Bruce Springsteen´s "I´m on fire". This is good stuff.

Did you know that?

The Who were originally called The Detours, then changed their name to The Who after a suggestion by Townsend´s friend Richard Barnes. Their first manager, Pete Meaden, renamed them The High Numbers, and they released one unsuccessful single, Zoot Suit, under that name. When EMI dropped them the band sacked Pete Meaden and went back to being called The Who.

It is said another possible reason was because of Peter Townshend´s grandmother, who would always refer to popular bands as "The Who?" mainly because of hard hearing.
