On their Spring 2015 tour, Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland stopped by the Fretboard Journal offices to talk guitars and songwriting. Doucet and McClelland have both worked as solo artists – independently and together – and as sidemen, most notably with Sarah McLachlan, with whom Doucet started playing way back in 1991 (he was just 19 at the time). After a while of working apart together, so to speak, in 2011 they released their eponymous first album as Whitehorse (not to be confused with the Australian metal band of the same name) and put their solo careers behind them.
They’ve released two EPs (including one in French) and two more full-length albums since then, and had a child. In addition, Luke curates his own guitar festival – the Sleepwalk Guitar Festival. Check out their beautiful performance of the sexy song from their 2015 release, Leave No Bridge Unburned.
