Whitehorse is a Canadian folk rock band, whose members are Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland. Doucet and McClelland were both established and successful singer-songwriters in their own right, both before and after they married in 2006, but opted in 2011 to put their solo careers on hold to work together as a band.
In July 2013, their second album The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss was shortlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize. That year, they also played their first show at Massey Hall, one of Canada's most storied music venues; to mark the occasion, they released The Road to Massey Hall, an EP comprising cover versions of songs written and performed by other artists who had previously performed there.
