Biography

whispertrip is a Santa Barbara based band dedicated to the creation of emotional intensity in music. the sound is melodic, textural, and always beautiful. they have recently released their debut ep no shore, recorded at Santa Barbara’s Orange Whip Studios.

no shore begins with “happiest”, a downtempo track with a melancholy, musicbox feel, followed by the electronic “one little bit”. “refrain” is a sinister and sweet warning while “out to sea”, the inspiration for the title, is a beautifully bitter song of romance adrift. no shore closes with “next one”, a sparse, acoustic piano ballad of modern-day desperation.

Bio
Raised in mostly-sunny Santa Barbara, Ashley discovered a world of her own when she heard Bruce Springsteen’s “Philadelphia” on the radio one cold January morning. The sad song had a profound impact; soon thereafter she began working after school at the local record store. Turned on to the atmospheric folk of Beck, Sinead O’Connor, Mazzy Star & Concrete Blonde, she began writing songs and singing in bands in her hometown and nearby Los Angeles.

In the spring of 2004 Ashley met David, a classical pianist and signal processing engineer who had recently moved to Santa Barbara to begin graduate studies in Computer Music. Originally an engineering student at the University of Michigan, he was inspired to add a second degree in music when he discovered The Beatles and Radiohead. Influenced by the piano works of Chopin, Schubert, and Debussy, his poignant harmonies and subtle melodies were the ideal canvas for the soulful alto’s dark paintings.

    Whoops, I meant to post about the quality of the singer in the artist page but ended up shouting at the user Whispertip. I suppose that's pretty much the same thing, though.
