The Devil Whale

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Thursday we continue our series on Utah music with the alternative folk band The Devil Whale. The Salt Lake City band - formerly known as Palomino - is very popular in Utah Valley. Provo club owner Corey Fox says their lead singer and guitarist Brinton Jones is "the most passionate front man on the scene." Doug talks to Jamie Gadette of the Salt Lake City Weekly and to Fox about the unique role Utah Valley plays in local music. We're then joined by the band - live with instruments in studio.
