The Lighthouse and The Whaler
OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS THE LIGHTHOUSE AND THE WHALER HAS ESTABLISHED ITSELF AS A PREVAILING INDIE ROCK ACT. THEY'VE SPENT MUCH OF THAT TIME TRAVELING THE U.S. AND CANADA WHILE SHARING STAGES WITH BANDS LIKE SUFJAN STEVENS, RA RA RIOT, THE TEMPER TRAP AND JUKEBOX THE GHOST. ALL THE WHILE THEY WERE BUILDING THEIR OWN FAN BASE AND HEADLINING MANY OF THEIR OWN TOURS LEADING TO SOLD OUT SHOWS AT STORIED VENUES AROUND THE COUNTRY. DESCRIBED AS "A GENRE-BLURRING INNOVATOR." BY PASTE THE BAND HAS BUILT ON THE MOMENTUM OF THEIR LAST FULL LENGTH RELEASE, 2015'S 'MONT ROYAL', THE BANDS MOST CRITICALLY AND COMMERCIALLY SUCCESSFUL RECORD TO DATE, WHICH ROLLING STONE CALLED "A SINCERE AND IMAGINATIVE EFFORT" AND IMPRESSED NPR SO MUCH THAT THEY NAMED THE BAND ONE OF THEIR '100 BANDS TO SEE AT SXSW' IN 2017.
THE END OF 2017 SAW THE BAND RELEASE THEIR EP 'PATHS', IT WAS WELL RECEIVED BY CRITICS INCLUDING PASTE, SALON AND MORE. THE CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER NAMED IT ONE OF THE BEST EP'S OF THE YEAR. THE BAND HEADLINED AN EAST COAST TOUR IN SUPPORT AND ENDED THE TOUR WITH A SOLD OUT MERCURY LOUNGE SHOW IN NEW YORK CITY. IN 2018 THE BAND RELEASED TWO SINGLES - 'INTO THE UNKNOWN' AND 'FUTURE BLIND'. THEY HEADLINED A WEST COAST TOUR IN MAY/JUNE. THEY ALSO ADDED TO THEIR EVER GROWING LIST OF SYNCS WITH A PLACEMENTS IN ABC'S GREY'S ANATOMY, AMERICAN IDOL AND IN THE WORLDWIDE TRAILER FOR DISNEY'S 'CHRISTOPHER ROBIN'.
Hailing originally from New Jersey,now relocated to Los Angeles,The Catching features lead singer and bassist Holden Glazer (20), guitarists Jake Farbman (18) and Evan Hemwall (20) and drummer Drew Stevens (21). The pop rock band draws inspiration from Fall Out Boy, Coldplay and Imagine Dragons. Their carefully-crafted style is highlighted by a sonic palette of polished guitar hooks, Holden's rock-based vocal rasp, a driving low end coupled by a booming backbeat.The members of The Catching met at a young age while performing together in local New Jersey music programs.
