She's Not Coming Tonight

Lance Whalen doesn't immediately command the room. He could, certainly, with his tall, dark good looks and distinctive sideburns, but that's not really his style. He's essentially a strategist. He'd rather sneak up on the room from behind, suss it out, get a bead on the psychological landscape, and stake out the strongholds and the weak spots. Then he can conquer with a wink instead of a yell. Not unlike a good general, only with a better sense of humor.

Like any good strategist, Lance Whalen plays it fairly close to the vest. He doesn't give up any more than he has to. He can be outgoing and effervescent (the acting background comes in handy here), or he can be secretive and moody. Sometimes he can be all of those things at the same time. You can probe him a little, and he'll be polite about it, but you're more apt to find what you're looking for in the songs. That's why he writes them.

Lance readily admits a fascination with what he calls the "off-kilter villain," the kind of guy Christopher Walken would play. Musical heroes include Tom Waits and Nick Cave, and Albert Camus is a favorite author. Sure, he's got some melancholy in him. Life happens, even when you're young. But he's got plenty of optimism, too - opportunity awaits around every corner. Life, love, and loss are all a part of the picture, but that doesn't mean the brush strokes can't rock!

A security guard for the National Guitar Workshop, his past musical incarnations include a stint with post-punk rockers The Reluctant, Big Hang (better known as the all-Elvis impersonator band), and more recently, Starboxer. A recent transplant to Nashville, Lance is a frequent performer at various clubs and cafes around town, also continuing to play his old haunts like NY, CT, and KY.

Lance Whalen's debut album is She's Not Coming Tonight. A limited edition 7" vinyl split with Andrew English is also available.
