The Depth and the Whisper and Erik Voeks are at Uptown Arts Bar on Saturday

The Depth and the Whisper
  • The Depth and the Whisper
In the Crossroads during First Fridays in June, there was a three-piece band out in front of the Whoop De Doo mural that seemed wayyyy too melodically advanced to be playing on a busy street. I stopped and watched them play a few tender power-pop songs for a while. Then they played a song that I recognized. Then I realized that the band was the Depth and the Whisper, and that I reviewed their record a few years ago.

That album, One Steady Breath, is a little bit cheesy, as my review indicates. But there are a few solid tracks on it, and from what I saw on First Friday, the group has added a few more. The band has also added a drummer - Albert Bickley and Dave Tanner (who also plays in Beatles tribute act Liverpool) are now joined on drums by Kelsey Cook. And they're about to tour the United States, with shows in Des Moines, Iowa; Chicago; Canton, Ohio; Boston; New York; Cincinnati and St. Louis.

This Saturday, July 20, the Depth and the Whisper kicks off the tour with a show at the Uptown Arts Bar. They'll be joined by Erik Voeks, another quietly sturdy pop songwriter, on lead guitar. "Erik is a great friend, along with being a tremendous talent on lead guitar," Tanner says. "The rehearsals have been tremendous in terms of give and take. We can't wait to hit the stage." (Voeks opens with a solo set at the Uptown Arts Bar show.)

The Depth and the Whisper is also working on a new record with producer Aaron Crawford (Beautiful Bodies, Flee the Seen), so be on the lookout for that, too.
