Let's hear it from Hanes Orrock!

Where are you located now and where are you originally from?

Whistling Swans is a Salt Lake City indie folk duo made up of married couple Hanes Orrock and Cayden Price. We are both from Utah. Who has been your greatest influence?

Laura Marling is a huge influence on Hanes' lyrics. The great singer-songwriters of the 70s are also very influential on our music. What is your latest and greatest?

Our first single from our debut album, Maybe, is out on all streaming services now. Are you performing LIVE soon?

This summer we have been the resident band for Busking Bus Theatre Company, and we've really enjoyed being a part of those shows. What are you most looking forward to in 2022?

The opportunity to write a whole new album after our debut album is released. Our debut album is earnest indie folk, but we'd like to explore more electronic music on our next album in 2022. How did you deal with all the changes in the past two years that the music industry has gone through?

We're a fairly new band, we started writing and recording our debut album at the end of 2019, so we have grown as a group throughout COVID. What would you say to your younger self if you could?

A song doesn't have to be perfect to be good. On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you?

We are very driven to create. Hanes is constantly writing new lyrics, and Cayd is always trying out new guitar riffs. We live to create! When you're not feeling motivated how do you get back on track?-

We try to create everyday, whether that be as small as writing one line, or as big as completing a whole song. As long as we are creating something every day, we tend to stay motivated. How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success?

We don't believe luck plays a huge role in someone's success, unless it is the luck of being born into a wealthy family. Money has a huge role in success, especially in the U.S. As completely independent music makers, we have to work extra hard. We don't have funds to pay anyone but the person who masters our tracks. We are truly indie lol How can we stay up to date with you?

We have an Instagram and a Facebook page. "Whistling Swans" on both platforms.
