With a new album on the way, we can’t wait to see what 2018 brings from this San Francisco Bay Area band.

WHISKEY MYERS:

Like a travelling preacher on some dusty back road, Whiskey Myers come knockin to spread their version of gritty outlaw southern rock. Their songs are stories, with characters and situations that are immediately relatable. Stories of celebration, mourning, trials, and triumph.  The band has a huge following that has been growing bigger through social media and word of mouth. Taking that the rural areas are speaking with a louder voice, we can see these boys leading outlaw country back with every verse they sing.
