But thankfully, that actually wasn't the death of Midas Whale. Jon Peter Lewis (an "American Idol" top 10 finalist from Season 3) and his musical partner Ryan Hayes have since launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their post-"Voice" debut album, and now they've released their lovely first official music video, for the original song "Howling at the Moon."
Recorded live at Randall Lake's Guthrie Artist Coop in Salt Lake City, the homespun, folksy video is a taste of what might come if Midas Whale reach their $30,000 Kickstarter goal in the next six days. As of this writing, they're less than $5,000 away from hitting that goal, so if you're a fan of what you see and hear below, click HERE to donate. You might as well!
