New  Video/Single Out Today:

The Lighthouse And The Whaler “Into The Unknown”

With their groundbreaking EP PATHS still gaining momentum with fans, Cleveland’s THE LIGHTHOUSE AND THE WHALER have released today a brand new single “Into The Unknown.”  Rife with a soaring and epic chorus and a monster hook befitting of a great white, “Into the Unknown” propels the listener into a pastoral and textured expanse that The Waster has hailed as “embodiment of adventurous free expression”.


Cleveland based, blues and gospel influenced Alternative band, Welshly Arms debuts their latest song, “Indestructible,” today. Debut album No Place Is Home is set for release on May 25th.
