Profile of the performer Whysall Lane:
Whysall Lane was originally conceived as an acoustic solo side project for Versus singer/guitarist Richard Baluyut to perform Versus songs and original material. It became Richard's main musical outlet in 2001 after Versus temporarily disbanded.
That year Richard Baluyut relocated to San Francisco from New York City, and Whysall Lane played some live shows with Sooyoung Park playing bass and Richard's brother James Baluyut playing keyboards. Eventually a permanent lineup solidified later that year around Richard Baluyut on vocals and guitar, Mikel Delgado (formerly of The Little Deaths) on bass and vocals, Adam Pfahler (formerly of Jawbreaker) on drums, and Lorna Lithgow on keyboards. The focus of the group changed to electric instrumentation and original material. Lithgow left the band in 2002, and Jerry diRienzo (who also recorded the band's debut album) briefly joined the group as a lead guitarist in 2003.
In March 2007 it was announced on the band's MySpace page and the Blackball Records site that Mikel Delgado had left the band in late 2006, and "the band as you knew it no longer exists".
