Based in Charlotte, NC, Husky is made up of Mark Hadden (bass), Phil Strickland (guitar), and Nate Wilkinson (drums). Hadden and Strickland began playing together as high school sophomores in 1991. After various band experiences, they recruited Wilkinson and in early 2000 Husky was born. In the past nine years, the instrumental trio has grown from spinning improvised epic rock jams to firing off focused, intelligent yet simple tunes. Ranging from thick, head nodding Southern grit-rock to echoing bluesy twang and swirling psychedelia to ambient soundscapes, Husky’s masculine punch has been embraced by fans of blues and classic rock to modern and stoner rock aficionados to fans of sweeping melodic post-rock. Their improv skills often come into play during live shows, and they rarely play the same show twice. The full-length debut “Circle the Wagons” was released in March 2006.
"The Sea King" is the second full-length release. Largely culled from spontaneous first takes, "The Sea King" captures the trio coming into it's own as dynamic writers and arrangers. Not only riding a steady blues rock riff or fluidly jamming as on "Circle the Wagons," Husky exhibits more diversified influences such as Sonic Youth, Ladytron, The Doors, and even Stereolab and Mazzy Star. From the charging pace of "Flagship" to the sleepy sinking feeling what washes over the disc's closer "Leeward and Easy," the bands signature sprawling compositions on "The Sea King" weather as many moods as the vessel to which it pays tribute in the album's liner notes.
