Freelance Whales

If you haven't found FREELANCE WHALES..well, you need to. This is a band more than Darren Kriss' brother..who is in band.

October’s got those orange eyes but somehow I still lost sight when you lifted the weight off of my pumpkin head and kissed me goodnight.
Freelance Whales

Such quirky yet divine lyrics!

Doris Cellar

Freelance Whales is an indie rock band hailing from Queens, New York, consisting of frontman Judah Dadone (lead vocals, banjo, acoustic and electric guitar, synthesizer, bass), and bandmates Nicole Mourelatos a.k.a. Doris Flynn Cellar (bass, harmonium, glockenspiel, synthesizer, vocals), Chuck Criss (banjo, bass, synthesizer, glockenspiel, harmonium, acoustic and electric guitar, vocals), Jacob Hyman (drums, percussion, vocals) and Kevin Read (acoustic and electric guitar, glockenspiel, mandolin, synthesizer, vocals).

Freelance Whales came together in 2008, after connecting through Craigslist and friends-of-friends. The band's debut album, Weathervanes was largely composed by frontman Judah Dadone, the lyrics based on a combination of childhood memories and dream journaling.The band's name derives from Dadone's childhood in Jerusalem, and a near-drowning incident in the Sea of Galilee.

The band began to gain traction in October 2009 as they honed their sound on subway platforms around New York City. Toward the latter part of 2009, they self-released Weathervanes, and on April 27, 2010 the album was re-released under the band's record labels, Frenchkiss and Mom + Pop.
