About The Whiles
The second full-length album "Sleepers Wake" from Columbus, Ohio’s The Whiles is a master stroke of ornate chamber pop that easily and equally evokes shades of 60s ghosts like the hollies, the association, and 70s folk troubadour
like Townes Van Zandt, while mixing in enough sonic grist to keep things
firmly planted in the now. The Whiles 2nd full-length album "Sleepers Wake" ratchets up the best aspects of the band--stellar songwriting, playing, arrangements,
and that certain timeless quality that’s in scarce supply these days. If you’re looking for a current-day comparison, the shins might be
a good starting point, but just how no two snowflakes are alike, the whiles craft a slightly different
mix of pop, folk and the kitchen sink to stand on their own two feet.
*The Whiles have opened for national acts My Morning Jacket, Andrew Bird and The National to name a few.
*The Whiles have a song in the soundtrack and MTV films movie "Murderball".
