Shadow Academy Releases Debut Song “White Whale”
- American producer Jim Roach and singer-songwriter Dan Avidan have joined forces to form the epic rock band Shadow Academy.
The band released their debut song “White Whale” along with an animated music video on January 28, 2022.
It was written by Dan Avidan and Jim Roach. Produced by Jim Roach. The video was animated by Simon Macko.
During the early months of COVID-19, Jim Roach started sending Dan Avidan new music to work and he would work on lyrics and melodies that were primarily inspired by the classic books.
From Dracula to Moby Dick, many of the debut song themes were inspired by these classics. “After writing our first song, 'White Whale,' together we knew we were onto something special” Jim Roach recalled.
- “The beginning of 2020 was a pretty harrowing experience for everyone as parts of society shut down, and the desire to stay creative amidst all that slow chaos started to become really intense as 2020 and 2021 went on,” Dan Avidan told HollywoodLife. “Jim and I were fortunate that we could exchange musical ideas remotely until things were safe enough to get together and record the album.”
“I know for me personally, Shadow Academy helped me feel connected to the rest of the world,” he added. “We put our hearts and soul into these songs. I'm as excited about this band as anything I've ever been a part of.”
