Many thanks to The Ferndale Set for shooting this live video of our song “Super 8” at PJ’s Lager House in Corktown. We had blast hanging out at PJs and filming, and we hope you enjoy the song! We will be back in the studio soon to record the song for our third record, which will be out sometime in 2019.
We are excited to announce that three songs from our first record are in the new video game Detroit: Become Human, developed by Quantic Dream and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4, released worldwide on May 25th. The game takes place in Detroit in 2038 and is centered around three androids: Connor, Kara, and Markus. All three songs in the game (Can’t Leave, Straight and Narrow, and C Blues) play inside Jimmy’s bar where Connor meets Lieutenant Anderson.
You can find “Can’t Leave” in the first scene of the video game walk through below.
We spoke with Michael Jackman from The Detroit Metro Times the other day, and he wrote a fun article which you can find here.
The coolest thing about our music being in Detroit: Become Human? People are still listening to our songs in 2038! 🙂
We are happy to announce that our 2017 album “The Valley” has won a Detroit Music Award for Best Country Recording. Many thanks to everyone who helped us with this album. Everyone who contributed to our Indiegogo, Brian Ferriby on drums, Ozzie Andrews and Johnny Albert Abel on bass, David Roof also on bass and for audio engineering at his studio Rooftop Recording and Jim Diamond for mixing/mastering. We will be getting back into the Rooftop Recording studio soon to work on our third record, set for release sometime in 2019.
Hey everyone, can you help us out? We can’t decide which song to enter for the NPR Tiny Desk Concert. Let us know which song you vote for – “Lullaby” or “Super 8”. Video links below! Many thanks to Johnny’s Speakeasy for letting us crash their great venue!

Last week we traveled to Knoxville, Tennessee to perform on the WDVX Blue Plate Special in front of a live audience. Ozzie Andrews joined us on upright bass and we all made waffles at the Super 8. A recording of the full show is now on Soundcloud. Have a listen!
Many thanks to Flooshime Zipper Boots for the great mini-review of our new album!
“The Valley is the sophomore album from Detroit band The Whiskey Charmers. The eleven tracks flawlessly blend blues rock, alt-country and folk rock into a masterful album that is sultry, swinging, heavy when it should be and intimate at all times. This is a band unafraid to show their grasp of somewhat arcane styles, by dragging them into a modern interpretation that works from start to finish. Highlighted by strong vocals and musicianship, this album is a must have. Stream and buy The Valley at the following link.” – Floorshime Zipper Boots – 10/5/2017
Many thanks to Muff Fitzerald for the amazing review of our album in Americana UK! Excerpt below. You can find the full review here.
“They have been described as country noir, outlaw, and roots, however, they prefer to describe themselves as Ameripolitan; the term coined by Dale Watson, that covers all those styles that aren’t mainstream country and which has its own annual award ceremony. Ray ‘Can you open a window?’ Benson from Asleep At The Wheel presented last year’s Ameripolitan gongs. It’s quite likely that The Valley might garner one such, this year.
The Whiskey Charmers first, critically acclaimed and eponymously named album was recorded live over 11 hours; The Valley took them 14 months. This time around they decided to track the album so they could experiment and add some overdubs. It was a very good decision. The production is excellent. They have produced a set of superbly crafted songs that run the gamut from doom, despair and insecurity to coquettish seduction, written mainly by Carrie along with breath-taking guitar work by Lawrence…” – Muff Fitzgerald, Americana UK – 9/1/2017
