about

The Wooden Whale is an experimental solo double bass rockabilly symphonic concept album by Eddy Blake.


Influenced by rockabilly and bluegrass music (and to a certain extent classical and pop) this album covers a dynamic range of originals, instrumentals and arrangements.



Multiple double basses are overdubbed together to create a rich texture of harmony, melody and rhythm, using the bass as both a solo and accompanying instrument. Vocals sit nicely upon the back of the basses while arco solos ride a gutsy wave of percussive slapping.



Eddy is best known for his down home rockabilly bluegrass slapping in bands such as The United Steel Workers of Montreal, Bloodshot Bill and the Hand Cuffs and Filly and the Flops and he has also fronted the Cockroaches and Eddy Blake and the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers. These recordings are experimental in the sense that for Eddy, as an artist, it delves far outside of his normal role as a bassist.
