Biography

The Whiskey Charmers is the Americana Roots duo of Carrie Shepard and Lawrence Daversa. Their haunting melodies tell stories of love, heartbreak, the open road, and of course, whiskey. Brett Callwood of the Detroit Metro Times says “The Whiskey Charmers truly create the aural equivalent of crying into a tumbler filled with bourbon, bemoaning a lost love. There’s no ice added.” A fan recently described their music as "riding through the Mojave Desert in a convertible with the top down."

Recently formed in 2013, The Whiskey Charmers have performed around the Detroit area, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Kentucky and West Virginia. Recent audio clips from their appearance on the NPR program "Red Barn Radio" can be found here https://soundcloud.com/the-whiskey-charmers/sets/the-whiskey-charmers-live-on as well as more recordings here https://soundcloud.com/the-whiskey-charmers. They plan to record a new album this year.

“The Whiskey Charmers just might have the most appropriate name ever. For starters, the band plays a brand of country, folk, and Americana that’s perfectly suited to dimly lit whiskey bars, where a few shots of fire will help get you in the right frame of mind. And the trio will charm the pants off you with their moody aesthetics and clever wordplay. Two big reasons this band — which formed last year — is starting to gain some traction is that they march to the beat of their own creative drum, and they don’t pull any punches.”

Much like fellow locals the Blueflowers, the Whiskey Charmers play poetic, mildly gothic folk rock. Daversa is skilled at allowing his guitar to compliment Shepard’s vocals, rather than overriding it. It’s a less-is-more philosophy which serves the band well, and it allows the songs to breathe.
