Still working on that hot first release.



Everyone can write a catchy song, but it's a band like Whale Tooth that pack as much punch lyrically as they do musically, to really stand out in the often overcrowded Toronto scene. Traces of soul and jazz can be found sprinkled atop their summer-friendly pop rock, which has proven to be the defining factor in winning over listeners at every venue they play.

Perhaps it's front woman Elise LeGrow's commanding vocals that has the power to convert even the unlikeliest of followers, or perhaps it is their cunning ability to craft delicious hooks that will be left playing in your head for days and days.

LeGrow and her bandmates began making waves in Toronto and surrounding cities almost immediately after forming in 2007. LeGrow, already with an impressive resume as a jazz vocalist under her belt, joined forces with guitarists and co-vocalists Norm Maschke and Alex Denike and began writing some of the most honest and potent tunes this city has heard. Accompanied by the vibrant rhythm section, bassist Michael McCreary and drummer Sep Noroozi, the band has hit the ground running, playing a slew of shows across Ontario and Eastern Canada, including appearances at CMW and NXNE.

February '09 saw the band independently release their debut self titled EP to a sold out room of fans at Sneaky Dees. The EP has received high praise from ardent reviewers, while the lead single "Hibernation Song" has been giving campus radio a run for their money.

The band is currently playing shows, and have begun writing new material for their forthcoming sophomore release, which they hope to begin recording in the spring of 2010.
