Shadow Of Whales is an alternative indie-pop band with a passion for creating music and spreading hope through friendships. Fronting the group is Joshua Flores (Invisible Target), his brother Caleb on drums, Chris Fraga on lead guitar, Jeremy Boyum on bass guitar, and JD Vazquez on keys/glockenspiel. What makes this band truly unique is the experience that all of them have had in aggressively seeking careers in music with their previous bands. They are all songwriters, they all love music, and more importantly, they all love people.
Shadow of Whales made their debut appearance at the Austin Convention Center in front of thousands of people for DellWorld; this act brought them to appear on TV only weeks later on KTBC – FOX 7 and garner praise from people like the Indie Band Guru with statements such as, “Shadow Of Whales has the tunes and the drive to make a big impact on the strong local Austin scene and beyond”
Less than a year later, SoW released their debut self-titled EP and saw an explosion of support from both their quickly growing fan base and the web. “[Shadow of Whales has] dropped one of the sassiest and catchiest records in recent memory” claims Under The Gun Review. The debut EP charted on CMJ’s Top 200 and has seen regular rotation at Starbucks Coffee across the United States and Canada.
Shadow of Whales have shared the stage with names such as Courage My Love, Mayday Parade, Circa Survive, Jonny Craig and performed at several festivals such as the Vans Warped Tour, (San Antonio) RedGorilla Music Festival, Heart of Texas Rockfest, South By So What?! Festival, and the “Rather Be Dead Than Cool” Tour (Texas dates) with Forever Came Calling.
[Shadow of Whales] have dropped one of the sassiest and catchiest records in recent memories. It has power, it has drive, and it without a doubt contains some of the most grossly intimidating melodies around.

Jeremy is an aquarius and his amazing artist wife, Meredith (@Lasagnart) has cool pink hair and together they will takeover all of the pizza-joints and give free pizza to the poor and needy! @jeremyboyumsow
Caleb is basically a carbon-copy of Olan Rogers. His favorite past-times are playing drums, hanging with buddies and drinking orange soda. @calebzflores
Josh is Caleb’s brother. He is also very good at the virtual reality game known as ‘Minecraft’. He can build a brick house out of dirt blocks and raise his chickens to lay pigs! @joshuafloressow
Chris, known to his peers as CFr0g, can’t rap but he can spit some mean game. #cantstopwontstop #flowslikephosphorus @cfr0g
