Bio ... What Bio? ... the Whiners Bio
Our stuff combines a mix of happy/sad life experiences (our own and others - maybe yours too). We call it "whinersmusic".
The Whiners family:
- KEITH (vox, guitars, tape effects & songwriter)
- Jamie Manov (vox, keys, bass guitar, guitars & songwriter)
- Shannon Morton (vox & guitar)
- David Marshall Green (vox, lead guitars, bass & songwriter)
We're a wee bit aggresive-trad-folk-rock sounding. Perhaps: "alt-punk-new-folk-rock"? Ah, WTF, we don't really know - that's why we call it "whinersmusic".
- KEITH is currently the most active Whiner and is, in fact, leader
of the band. KEITH uses what he calls "the Band in a Box"
for harmony and effects generation when playing all on his lonesome
- he got really motivated by watching KT Tunstall and her "wee
little bastard" pedal. He's kind of quirky and writes social
commentary songs with an edge of funny to them.
- Jamie is fearless ... the glue that holds our arrangements together.
He's a versitile dude who plays rhythm & lead guitar including
slide lead parts, plays bass and brings the bottom end vocals. He
tends to write the ballads for the band.
- Shannon is simply fab and, when she guests and we do covers, she
is the one who brings the awesome.
- Dave can play like Dave Gilmour (and many others actually) and we love that. So, we can sound pretty electric and dirty when he guests with us. He also writes original material bringing new material and a legacy of songs from his gigs in the 80's with his former band The Mix.
