Whiskey Myers Releases Self-Titled LP

 

Whiskey Myers is considered one of the best at their craft witnessed by their performance at the recent Bourbon & Beyond music festival. They are a combination of smooth Texas Country and the unbridled rawness of Southern rock and roll. Fans of Whiskey Myers were allowed an online sampling of their upcoming self produced album Whiskey Myers and based on their overall reaction, they were seriously impressed.

In fact, if you follow Whiskey Myers Youtube channel, the online chatter amongst their fans insinuated that they
have been anxiously awaiting  the full release of Whiskey Myers for quite some time. In June, Whiskey Myers toured with
the Rolling Stones, and based on reviews of the show, the die hard ‘Stones fans could not get enough of the bands hard driving sound. In fact they might be new band to the casual music listener but after 12 years together, Whiskey Myers is a veteran of the music world and the new self-titled album is a culmination of what is “right” about Whiskey Myers.

It seems that knowing what you want to accomplish and doing the work yourself pays off. Whiskey Myers is the first self produced album from the band and it continues to build on the heritage they have established thus far in their career.  This new album is extraordinarily smooth, transitioning seamlessly from the bluesy country ballad Bad Weather to the high octane Gasoline, which surprisingly, is getting some well deserved airplay on rock stations nationally. Traditional country purists might be disappointed in Whiskey Myers, but listening cover to cover, you soon begin to realize that this is so much deeper than anything the band has previously released. Cody Cannon’s resonating vocals along with the scintillating guitar work of Cody Tate and John Jeffers continue to set the backdrop for some of best cuts on this album. Die Rockin, the opening track, is a fast paced southern rocker that features some serious guitar riffs and leads, reminiscent of early Lynyrd Skynyrd.  Even though it serves as the foundation of Whiskey Myer, Die Rockin is not fully indicative of the complete body of work the band has bestowed onto us.

Simply put Whiskey Myers is a whole lot of Southern attitude mixed with a heavy dose of rock and roll and together form one of the most eye opening releases of 2019. Yes, its a Southern rock masterpiece that can ascend to legendary status with a little luck. This album harkens back to the days when the great bands such as the Marshall Tucker Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allmann Brothers and so may more ruled the airwaves nationally. Unfortunately for bands in this genre, times have changed and we are inundated with bubblegum country music, a fragmented rock and roll genre and no real musical outlet for Whiskey Myers to be heard.

The band itself makes a point that they are not mainstream Nashville, nor are they going the Country Pop route, it’s just not going to happen. These seasoned musicians have honed their skills to be multi-instrumental, and can now add to their list of songwriters, players, and the esteemed title of record producers.

To answer the question you are all wondering; Yes, this is a damn good album, a classic that deserves to be heard and enjoyed by the masses. It is on our playlist a will remain there until something better comes along and takes its place.To be honest,I have a strong suspicion Whiskey Myers will be entrenched for a long time…..Its THAT good!
