The Whitewalls are the latest iteration of guitarist David Lott, bassist Matt Epstein and drummer Josh Bloom. As 3/4 of Licorice, this band of Brooklyn based musicians haunted such famous stages as The Blue Note, The Knitting Factory and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, offering up complex originals, jazz standards and fusion odysseys with their inimitably cohesive and delicate touch. Now as a streamlined trio, The Whitewalls have turned their focus on songcraft, playing with power, pocket and ease. With The Torch, their first EP, already recorded, The Whitewalls are revisiting and redefining the power trio format that has long been one of Rock 'N Roll's most solid cornerstones.
