Whalien

Rock, Funk, Ska

Whalien - A rocking jam band with a diverse range of genres found in their music, Whalien is a four piece ensemble from Bellingham, Washington. The group started between students at Western Washington University. Several years later they've forged their own style within a crucible of house shows, a style orbiting around Rock, Funk, Ska, and Dance. Whalien's four members are Zach Martin on guitar and vocals, Alex Draper on keyboard, trombone, and vocals, Jimmy Goulding on bass, and Shane Crawford on drums. Each comes from a different part of Washington, and each brings a unique musical expertise with them wherever the group plays. Somewhere between a whale and an alien, Whalien swims through a cosmos of sound, and dives into their listener's hearts.
