Singer-songwriter Whitney Peterson uses music and art like personal therapy. She describes songwriting as a spontaneous process, clasping onto imagery and feelings as they come to her. This is likely a skill inherited from her mother, a renowned painter. This introspective process results in a melodic and lyrical style steeped in honesty. Despite a deeply personal relationship with her music, she has always wanted to let others into her musical universe. This desire began materialize when she met Syd Beagle.
Syd Beagle has been drumming for 15years in numerous styles and is trained in Jazz and Classical music. He instantly recognized Whitney’s musical intuition and was eager to nurture it. With endeavors in everything from reggae to poetry, this decision came as little surprise to his friends. Syd brought Whitney to his friends studio to record a handful of demo songs. Neither could predict what would come of the spontaneous weekend session.
Brandon Hoffman is an experienced engineer, teacher and bass player. He naturally bridged the gap between Whitney's graceful poetics and Syd’s raw, dynamic energy. Before he knew it, Brandon was playing regularly with Syd and Whitney for the loving crowds of Commercial Drive and Granville Island.
The band quickly coalesced into the cathartic groove machine it is today.
