Emerging in 2016 with their debut EP, Whiteford quickly earned a reputation as one Sydney’s most exciting up and coming rock acts. In 2018 the band released their self titled album which featured live favourites “She Joins Love” and “Words Like Bullets” both of which scored airplay on radio stations across the country and received high praise from global rock media. On the anniversary of their debut album release, Whiteford returned to the studio to record The Acoustic EP which is their first release through their new home at XMusic.
On the EP the band add “We wanted to do something to celebrate the anniversary of our debut album and to introduce some new singles off is as well. So we went to the studio to record the original singles, the upcoming singles, a crowd favourite and a surprise cover in an acoustic style reminiscent of the MTV Unplugged TV show that ran from the early 90’s till just before 2010. We had a ton of fun recording it and the whole EP has a great “live” feel in an “unplugged” setting, it’s not your usual “unplugged ” recording that’s for sure!”
Tim McLean, CEO and Co Founder of XMusic says of signing Whiteford to the label, “I Have known members of Whiteford for over 10 years and have been following their musical journey and feel it was time to join forces to get their music to the world, so enjoy the next chapter in the music of Whiteford”.
The band add “We are extremely excited to have joined with XMusic, the respect we have for the decades of industry knowledge that Tim and the Xmusic team bring to the table is huge and we look forward to what the future holds between Whiteford and Xmusic.”
Whiteford deliver raw, passionate rock songs with a narrative of the ups and downs of love, celebration, loss and life, weaving elements of modern and classic rock with blues, layered with energy, emotion and delivered with soul. Having many years of on stage and in studio experience, they are ready to break out of the local scene and onto the festival circuit and larger stages. Their energetic and emotional driven live show is something not to be missed.
