Whiskey Myers – Whiskey Myers


The long awaited follow up to 2016’s Mud, album number five from Texan Southern rockers Whiskey Myers is both self titled and self produced. The past three years has seen the band enjoy wider exposure both at home (with their songs featured in Kevin Costner’s Yellowstone series) and here in the UK and Europe when after touring with the Cadillac Three they have gravitated to headliners and also made festival appearances including a main stage slot at last years Download.

Whiskey Myers have delivered a collection of songs that ranges from feedback soaked blowouts to smooth acoustic moments, along the way capturing their prowess both as top notch musicians and songwriters. Highlights are in abundance, from the laid back stomp of “Hammer” that evolves into a country hoedown meets gospel jam to the wistful road trip journey of “California to Caroline” and the hard hitting grunge of “Bitch” that sees guitarist John Jeffers also take over the lead vocals. Cody Cannon’s frazzled whiskey soaked vocals hit the spot throughout and nowhere more so than on “Kentucky Gold” with its boot tapping rhythms, although the overall impression is very much one of a collaborative band effort – further evidenced when guitarist Cody Tate takes over on vocals for “Bad Weather” which closes out the album riding a wave of nostalgia and reflection.

Just like all of the great Southern bands of yesteryear, Whiskey Myers play music that will stand the test of time and this may well be their finest batch of songs to date
