Where it all began
Blues, rock n’ roll, country, punk, psychedelic… They have been called everything in the book in their tiny four year existence and with the recent lineup change… They aim to throw people off their trail once more! Adding bassist/keyboardist Steven Doneske seems to be a perfect fit as the band looks to break more genres and labels.
Currently working on their second album, Vanilla Whale has released their newest single “Gotta Roll” which has an unfamiliar country “twang” for a band known for its Rock n Roll/Blues approach. The truth is that Vanilla Whale can not and WILL NOT be pegged down to just one meaningless title. What they are really known for when askign their fans is their viciously loud live shows and being told to “turn it down” by every sound man in town.
Vanilla Whale, however laughable you find the name, has provided the band with an endless amount of arsenal to confuse their fans. The name means many things to different people but to the band… It’s the name of a pirate ship!
