Whyte Zebra’s once distinguished alternative folk sound now imprisons a new psychedelic rock characteristic; an original, respected additive for this Central Queensland quartet. A new instrumental line up of electric double bass, unyielding drums accompanied by sublime guitar and violin effects creates an envisage of blissful yet nostalgic emotions, creating a profound depth of light and shade within their music. “A brand of alternative rock that’s less painfully hip and more established” RAVE MAGAZINE 2010
Now at their third year in the music seen, Whyte Zebra have established a solid local fan base, achieved a number of goals including winning two arts grants, performing on channel 7’s popular TV program ‘Queensland Weekender’, hosted various song writing workshops and have supported a large number of nationally renowned artists at various festivals and gigs around Queensland. Currently working on a new album Whyte Zebra are aspiring to extend their music to a larger demographic around Australia later this year with the release of their next album and tour dates.
With a jazz degree in bass guitar, Steve Quinn provides lead vocalist and guitarist Andy Stanhope the theoretical knowledge to aid in Whyte Zebra’s unique song writing. Bec Romeo’s uncanny ability to improvably harmonise and introduce melodies to song structures gives their songs colour and depth. Drummer Louis Parish provides the backbone of the band with years of experience from playing in a large number of bands nationally and internationally. “Outstanding vocals of Andy Stanhope” RAVE MAGAZINE 2010
Each member brings their own musical influences to the band, from roots to country through to heavy rock. It is these very differences that have seen the development of a unique bond, respect and passion for all kinds of music. “Whyte Zebra make an impact even if they hardly raise their voices” LUNA KAFE 2010..
