ABOUT THELONIOUS WHALE:
Ioan Delice’s (pronounced Yo-On) debut album is the rapper’s musical celebration of individualism and an artist’s existential crisis. The project, which features the artist's original production, pays homage to one of nature’s most fascinating enigmas, the 52-hertz whale. Often referred to as the “world’s loneliest whale,” it’s call vibrates at the very unusual frequency of 52Hz. This pitch is much higher than its counterparts, and despite sharing the same migration patterns as other whale species, its distinct song goes unanswered and the whale lives in complete solitude.
Through this metaphor, the rapper reveals a deep well of musicianship and taps into hip-hop’s ability to explore philosophical themes. As a self-proclaimed Thelonious Whale, Ioan describes humanity’s own conflict with uniqueness and emotional fortitude as well as the challenges of being a modern day artist in a saturated industry.
