The Whiskey Charmers is a Detroit-based Americana band led by Carrie Shepard and Lawrence Daversa. Their debut self-produced, self-titled album has been receiving airplay and excellent reviews in the U.S. and abroad and has recently been nominated for a Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Americana Recording. Vickye Fisher of For the Country Record says “If you were wondering where the roots and grit of country music had gone, you’ll find it in this album. There is a fulfilling darkness and aching quality about this record that falls in line with the genre at its best”. They have been included as one of the 15 best new bands in Detroit by the Detroit Metro Times who also listed Shepard as Best Singer/Songwriter of 2016. Mike McGonigal of the Detroit Metro Times says “There might be a plethora of Americana/ roots-infused acts in the greater Detroit area, but the Whiskey Charmers are a real cut above. This bunch are not poseurs. They do not strum ukuleles. They do not write songs about cowpoke bullshit. Their music is charming, original, and always a delight.” – Mike McGonigal, Detroit Metro Times 8/30/16
