It began in a field. THE LIGHTHOUSE AND THE WHALER began in 2008 when Michael LoPresti, Evan Storey, and Aaron Smith went to a park in Cleveland, Ohio to play music together. They wrote their first song in fifteen minutes. As they played it, people began to stop and listen. The boys realized they were on to something and THE LIGHTHOUSE AND THE WHALER was born. Nick Wise went on to join the band in early 2009.

THE LIGHTHOUSE AND THE WHALER blends sweeping vocals with shimmering melodies and orchestral soundscapes.

THE LIGHTHOUSE AND THE WHALER released its first EP, A WHISPER, A CLAMOUR in the winter of 2008. The four track EP is the culmination of that single moment in the field. The EP is now available on iTunes and Amazon. The Lighthouse and The Whaler is currently recording it's highly anticipated, self-titled, full length album. The LP is slated for release in September.

The band has been featured on multiple radio stations and asked to be on PASTE MAGAZINES compilation CD in March, 2009. In July 2009 the band was selected as FILTER MAGAZINES undiscovered artist of the month. The band has extensively toured the east coast and the midwest and has been asked to play with notable bands such as Southeast Engine and Margot and the Nuclear So and So's.
