Whitehorse is a Canadian folk rock band, whose core members are Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland. Doucet and McClelland were both established and successful singer-songwriters in their own right, both before and after they married in 2006, but opted in 2011 to put their solo careers on hold to work together as a band.
The duo have released two albums and an EP on Six Shooter Records. They are currently based in Hamilton, Ontario.
In July 2013, their second album The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss was shortlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize. That year, they also played their first show at Massey Hall, one of Canada's most storied music venues; to mark the occasion, they released The Road to Massey Hall, an EP comprising cover versions of songs written and performed by other artists who had previously performed there.
In 2014, they released Éphémère sans repère, an EP of French language versions of several of their songs. Lyric translations for the EP were provided by Pierre Marchand.
Their third full-length album, Leave No Bridge Unburned, is slated for release in February 2015.
