Whitehorse gathers no moss, rolling forward with a brand new EP called "The Northern South Vol. 1," a project that takes the band deep into the Chess and Checker electric blues of the 1950s. With a pink Jazzmaster and a "new" 1952 Martin guitar, Whitehorse takes a twelve-bar trip through a collection of chart-toppers that built rock n' roll one sneakin' cheatin' no good man at a time. The first song out of the gate is "My Babe," a spiritual-turned-secular standard made famous by Little Walter, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's only harmonica player, and written by bass player and hit-maker Willie Dixon. In Whitehorse fashion, Melissa brings the heat on bass while Luke lays jagged edged riffs over the duo's signature step-by-step build-up, turning the "ain't gonna take it" tune into a meal. "The Northern South" isn't simply a history lesson. Whitehorse aims to speak the blues in their own language; the project is about mining the grooves and paying homage to songwriters, great melodies and songs that lend themselves to Whitehorse's distinctive approach and talents.
