Who: Said the Whale
When: October 12, 2018
Where: The Burdock, Toronto, ON
Said The Whale’s music is pure West Coast. There’s rich harmonies drawn from California pop, crunchy guitars rooted in the lineage of Pacific Northwest indie rock, and naturalistic lyrics inspired by the water and mountains of their hometown of Vancouver. Having spent a more than a decade together, the JUNO Award-winning trio of Tyler Bancroft (vocals/guitar), Ben Worcester (vocals/guitar) and Jaycelyn Brown (keyboards) have perfected a big-hearted sound that’s warmly organic and filled with pop hooks.
Last night, they performed an intimate set at The Burdock in Toronto, ON to celebrate the release of their new single, “UnAmerican“. We were stoked to be in attendance, see our photo coverage below.

I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
