*It began in a field. THE LIGHTHOUSE AND THE WHALER began in 2008 when Michael LoPresti, Evan Storey, and Aaron Smith went to a park in Cleveland, Ohio to play music together. They wrote their first song in fifteen minutes. As they played it together people began to stop and listen to them play. The boys realized they were on to something and THE LIGHTHOUSE AND THE WHALER was born. THE LIGHTHOUSE AND THE WHALER blends sweeping vocals with shimmering melodies and orchestral soundscapes.
