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” recently received a Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Americana Recording and 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 Outstanding 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 are currently finishing up their fourth full length album, set to release in November 2022.
