Many thanks to The Horn in Austin, Texas for the short and sweet review of our album! Full link here.
“With a band name like the Whiskey Charmers, you may half expect to hear a group of rowdy young Irish guys, but definitely not the soothing voice of Carrie Shepard, one half of the duo that also includes Lawrence Daversa. Their self-titled debut finds the Detroit twosome playing soft Americana with a country twang, and it’s every bit as understated and beautiful as can be. Smooth and dark, like whiskey itself, Shepard and Daversa combine bluesy guitar riffs with subdued harmonies and a bit of an old fashioned soul. “Vampire” is mysterious with just the right amount of menace, and “Neon Motel Room” is mischievous and bright. Shepard’s vocals are so complemented by Daversa’s fiery electric guitar playing, adding a haunting dimension to something that might otherwise be light and pretty.”
