“The Whiskey Charmers are a Detroit-based duo who strike a perfect balance between laid back country and western and edgy folk rock. With the smoky lead vocals of Carrie Shepard and the stratospheric lead guitar textures of Lawrence Daversa, the self-released and self-titled 2015 album is solid from start to finish.” – Modern Rock Review 2/11/16

Country Perspective Album Review!

Many thanks to Country Perspective for supporting our music and for the wonderful review of our album!

“For the second time this year, we’ve got a fantastic album from an alt-country act out of Detroit (Whitey Morgan was the other). I don’t think The Whiskey Charmers could produce a much better debut album than this. Carrie Shepard is a very talented vocalist who could sing pretty much whatever she wants, while Lawrence Daversa dazzles me with his guitar play. It’s makes for a perfect combination. These two were made to make music with each other. ” – Country Perspective – July 11, 2015″

“The twang of both the guitar and the voice takes me to a swampy place I want to lie down and die in. Again, it’s making me happier than I have been in a while. To feel the agony in music is to feel what it is to be alive. When music can make you feel alive, then it is doing the job of saints. The Whiskey Charmers bring that dark, brooding sense you get when you enter a scary motel for the first time. This sound makes you want to drink more whiskey, even though you know full well it’s the worst idea you’ve had all night. The vocals of Carrie Shepard cut at you like a swiping switch-blade, yet rock you to sleep at the same time. The cutting guitar riffage from Lawrence Daversa walks you down a foggy beach only to find a bloody plane crash at its reaches. You feel the pain. You want to feel the pain. The pain has you flipping the record over and over so you can get at more of it.” – Rock and Roll Junkie – July 3, 2015

Digital Earbuds Review!

Many thanks to Digital Earbuds for the wonderful review of our music which takes the reader on an entertaining journey of our entire album! Full article here.

“I find Gentleman Jack to be a rather smooth talking soul mate. So I took my first shot of Jack, picked up my acoustic guitar, and quickly experienced the similarities between he the duo singing the first song, Elevator from their self-titled album. Carrie’s vocals and the smooth guitar of Lawrence rolled over my earbuds like the aged taste of Gentleman Jack on my taste buds. I could tell this little party was going to be an engaging one.”

Many thanks to Turnstyled Junkpiled for the kind words about our album. You can read the full review here!

“Carrie Shepard’s torch singer voice is absolutely enchanting, and the rest of the Charmers create a brilliant Country-Jazz fusion that evokes another time and place where the men wear dark suits and femme fatales pack more heat than a loaded gun. The overall effect of The Whiskey Charmers is, well, intoxicating.” – Turnstyled Junkpiled 5/6/15

Metrotimes article: Acoustic country trio the Whiskey Charmers play by their own rules

Many thanks to music journalist Brian Palmer and Metrotimes for yesterdays article on our band, titled “Acoustic country trio the Whiskey Charmers play by their own rules, no censorship allowed”

“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.”

– Brian Palmer, Metrotimes 11/12/14
