“Detroit band the Whiskey Charmers play dark Americana. Their 2015 debut album explored a Nashvllle gothic sound; their 2018 follow-up was a shift to brooding desert rock. Their latest album Lost on the Range – streaming at Bandcamp – is their hardest-rocking and most diverse release yet, and arguably their best. Frontwoman/guitarist Carrie Shepard has never sung more powerfully than she does here” – New York Music Daily
The Whiskey Charmers is a Detroit-based band led by Carrie Shepard and Lawrence Daversa. Fans have often compared their sound to riding through the desert with the top down, or the feeling of being in some lonesome smoky bar off the side of an abandoned highway, or music from a Spaghetti Western. William P Davis (Former Deputy Director of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville) says of the band, “I’ve heard a lot of good musicians. The Whiskey Charmers remind me of no one – and, to me, that is one of the best compliments an act can receive.”
Their most recent album “Lost on the Range” includes a diverse mix of songs that take you on a 36 minute journey through the wild west, out into the far reaches of the galaxy, into a bedroom filled with monsters, and down the interstate to a budget motel. With their own brand of dusty Americana, the songs are intimate, sometimes dark and sometimes funny enough to make you laugh out loud.
The Whiskey Charmers two other albums include a self titled album (2015) and “The Valley” (2017) which received a Detroit Music Award for Best Country Recording. Many fans have become familiar with The Whiskey Charmers music through the video game Detroit: Become Human, a cinematic neo-noir thriller game that has sold more then five million copies worldwide.
The Whiskey Charmers will be releasing their fourth full length album in November 2022.
