Whitehorse
Whitehorse
The classic tale of musical romance continues for Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland, the husband and wife duo behind Whitehorse. One year after their debut, Whitehorse returns in ambitious fashion with "The Fate of the World Depends on this Kiss" and a date at Massey Hall in 2013.

"The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss" is everything the talented pair's first full length promised. As a whole, the album reveals the range of creative possibility that only expands as Whitehorse develops and focuses their sound. Song by song, the record takes surprising turns; while each track confidently bears Whitehorse's signature blistering guitar work and love-knotted vocals, their willingness to take risks and ability to pull them off makes for captivating listening.

Whitehorse's live show is built on mesmerizing guitar work and smoldering vocal chemistry, but also brings much more to the stage with complex layers of percussion, keyboard and telephone receiver amplification, tangled like an embrace with the help of looping pedals. Their sold out Winter Garden Theatre show in February 2012 signaled their unquestionable arrival as a band.

With savage talent and tender hearts, Whitehorse expertly plays both lion and lamb on "The Fate of This World Depends on This Kiss." Six Shooter Records is proud to release this fine album on August 28, 2012.
The Ghost of Paul Revere
The Ghost of Paul Revere
The Ghost of Paul Revere is Maine's premier holler-folk band built around powerful three-part harmonies, energetic performances, and a non-traditional way of interpreting traditional American music. They write powerful songs, built on melody and energy, each with a unique identity while still remaining undeniably the Ghost of Paul Revere. Their debut EP North, released in the summer of 2012, became the 15th best selling local album in Maine and New Hampshire for 2012 in just 5 months. In August 2013, the group went into the studio to their first full length album, Believe, recorded live at the Halo by Jonathan Wyman and mastered by Gateway's Adam Ayan.
