Inspired by the timeless classic “Moby Dick”, The Lighthouse and the Whaler was born. The band originally consisted of just two members. Aaron Smith and Michael LoPresti collaborated to make two EPs: one in 2008 and one in 2009. The latter of the two had two songs that found their way to TV and radio. The success of this EP granted them a tour across America. During this journey, Smith and LoPresti picked up three new members to the band. Three years later and they finally released a new EP entitled Pioneers in March of 2012. Check out the song aptly named Pioneers below for some poppy goodness.
