Light Upon The Lake is the soulful debut from Whitney, who make a rich and bluesy pop music. The sweet vocals are the heart of the band's gorgeous and distinctively American, West Coast troubadour sound. The laidback guitar and harmonies hide the complex arrangements and stunning instrumentation.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 08 June 2016Whitney are the latest relaxed guys on the block and make me wonder yet again why I am so uptight and also whether if I moved to America I could be a little less uptight.
You may have heard ‘No Woman’ already and as you should have realised by now it’s a total corker. Gorgeously strummers acoustics, haunting ‘Straight Story’ style violas and a high pitched whine slowly getting upset. it’s one of those songs that makes me fall back in love with Americana. Whitney have a lovely sound - as if they’ve somehow gone back in time and used the same recording studio as the Band, chewy acoustic guitars strum gently, everything is muted with none of the ear-shredding harshness that passes for modern music. ‘Golden Days’ is perky in comparison to ‘No Woman’, the high pitched vocals recall Woods Jeremy Earl and I’m finding that Whitney have taken that sun dappled Woods sound and run with it,. There aren’t that many differences between the two bands in fact. If you like Woods you’ll like this, they aren’t doing anything new but they are doing it nicely.. a singing drummer too! Looks like these are the alt country band it’s ok to like in 2016.
