Light Upon The Lake, das Debütalbum von WHITNEY entstand aus Songwriting Sessions in den frühen Morgenstunden, während einem der schlimmsten Winter in der Geschichte Chicagos.

Sänger / Schlagzeuger Julien Ehrlich und Gitarrist Max Kakacek schrieben unerschütterliche, ehrliche Lieder, die thematisch von Trennungen bis hin zum Tod Ehrlichs' Großvater reichen.

Die kurze, intensive Kreativ-Periode der Band schuf Light Upon the Lake, eine außergewöhnliche, nicht zimperliche Kombination aus Soul, luftigem 60er/70er Rock und düsterem Herzensschmerz, zusammengehalten von hoffnungsvollen, goldenen Fäden.

Nach dem sie von Kritikern sehr gelobt wurden und seit dem Release 2016 fast ununterbrochenen auf Tour waren, kehren Ehrlich und Kakacek zu ihren Wurzeln zurück und zum ersten Mal erscheinen nun die kompletten Demos von Light Upon The Lake.

So bekommt man nach diesem turbulentem Jahr, das auf die Veröffentlichung des Debüts folgte, einen Eindruck des Sounds von Whitney zu ihren Anfängen.

,After almost two years of non-stop touring we decided we wanted to close the chapter on Light Upon the Lake by releasing the songs in their earliest incarnations alongside a cover of a band favorite by Alan Toussaint, and an unreleased track called ou and Me.' We're looking towards LP2 as we finish out the year on the road." - Love, Max and Julien Light Upon The Lake, the debut from Whitney, was born from early-morning songwriting sessions during one of the most brutal winters in Chicago's history.

Vocalist/drummer Julien Ehrlich and guitarist Max Kakacek began writing unflinching, honest songs about everything from breakups to the passing of Ehrlich's grandfather.

The pair leaned on one another for both honest critique and a sounding board for working through their newly-discovered truths.

The brief, intense period of creativity for the band yielded Light Upon The Lake's exceptional, unfussy combination of soul, breezy Sixties/Seventies rock, and somber heartbreak woven together by hopeful, golden threads.

After critical acclaim and nearly nonstop touring since the album's 2016 release, Ehrlich and Kakacek are going back to their roots - for the first time, the full demos from Light Upon The Lake will be made available.

After a whirlwind year following the debut, the demos offer a way for listeners to get a glimpse into the very beginning of Whitney's sound.

"After almost two years of non-stop touring, we decided we wanted to close the chapter on Light Upon The Lake by releasing the songs in their earliest incarnations alongside a cover of a band favorite by Alan Toussaint, and an unreleased track called 'You and Me.'We're looking towards LP2 as we finish out the year on the road." - Love, Max and Julien
