Profile Image: Whitehorse


from Hamilton Ontario



Since their debut in 2011, Toronto’s Whitehorse has evolved from magnetic folk duo to
full-blown rock band. In truth, Whitehorse is never fully either one or the other, but an
ever-evolving creative partnership between Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet. As
five consecutive JUNO nominations in four categories attest, whether it be a holiday
album or reworked blues covers or pop noir album, Whitehorse rises to every challenge
with guitar wizardry and magnetic harmonies.

With The Northern South Vol. 2, Whitehorse returned to their JUNO Blues Album of the
Year nominated project, which reimagines the early days of electric blues. For the
second instalment, The Northern South Vol. 2 deals 1950s blues bops, sexed-up cuts
and hellfire gospels to meld the grooves and melodies of the original selections with the
band’s steamy, swampy, squalling approach. Both snapshot and slingshot, with an eye
on the end-of-days and Whitehorse’s ear for blues grooves, The Northern South Vol.
2 expanded the universe of the Northern South with foreplay, foreboding, fever and
Fenders -- plenty of them -- on cuts from Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed, Slim
Harpo and more
