We had a blast during ArtPrize 2013 and even got the chance to play downtown to a bunch of our friends and fans. You can see a video selection from the concert below. Special thanks to Eight West and WOOD TV for inviting us to perform!
ArtPrize 2013 is here! The biggest art competition in the world is back in Grand Rapids and Simien the Whale is back too. We’ve added a couple of special shows to our schedule during ArtPrize to promote our entry, ‘Longbound.’ We will also be travelling around the ArtPrize scene with an acoustic guitar at the newly installed Busking Stations. Stay tuned to our Twitter feed for daily acoustic outdoor concert times between Sept. 22nd-29th.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, we have just released our newest video. We took seven songs to GrooveBox Studios in Detroit, MI and got one take only to nail our best performances. We closed with a fan favorite and decided to bring that performance to you in beautiful full HD. Enjoy!
Simien the Whale is heading to GrooveBox Studios in Detroit, MI later this month to record new material for an upcoming EP. You can help us take the next step by contributing to our Kickstarter campaign. We have established some great rewards for those that contribute, and we’ve even created a reward designed to get you into the room with us while we record!
Thank you for your ongoing support!
