When Rafe Haines was asked about his thoughts on the future of the band, had this
to Say.. “We have a clear vision for where we are headed and are excited for what
the future will bring for us, starting with the launch of our new record. We look
forward to sharing our new music with our fans.”
The band has just released a Brand new single called “All the way” to Country Radio
across Canada with an accompanying video from the upcoming album entitled “Unbreakable”.
The new album features some of the best performances and songwriting from the band
Natalye Vivian said this about the differences between the first and second albums..
“We put the first album out and sat back thinking " Wow, now we wait for fame and
fortune" ...I think the second album shows the growth that the band has gone through
in the last two years. We came at it with some education and life experience this
time, and I think that's reflected in the songwriting, production and showmanship.
They say that the sophomore album is the hardest and I have to agree. You put your
heart and soul into the first, then you have to go back and look for what's left
for the second. This album wasn't easy to do...we dug deep and made a lot of mistakes,
some turned into wonderful music and some ended up on the studio floor! But that's
the reason I love it so much....it's a true labor of love.”
And finally Kirby Kaye had this to say about how the band thinks.
“We’ve been doing this for a long time now. To the point where we walk into the
studio or onstage and we know what each of us is going to do. We feed off each other
and it adds fuel to the fire which makes for some great songs.
We love the writing and recording process and we are really excited about this new record. I almost
can’t wait to get started on the third one.”
Whiskey Jane will be touring to support the new record so keep an eye out to see
this Amazing group.
