As leading members, Anthony Ferretti and Lena Rush ultimately define the core of Whisker Music. Originally from Portland Oregon, the two moved to Chicago to pursue the beginnings of what is now Whisker Music. Ferretti and Rush chose particular sounds for their debut recording, stemming from their influence by the classics in rock, folk and country. In early December 2008 Whisker Music recorded at The Sound of Music Studios in Richmond, Virginia. Working with Drummer/Producer Miguel Urbiztondo (of Maki and various Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven recordings) and with the skillof Engineer Alan Weatherhead (of Sparkle Horse, Hotel lights and Maki; Engineer for Daniel Johnston and various others), Whisker Music’s debut was created. Whisker Music has embarked on a journey exploring new horizons in what defines an Americana band.
