Stage & Time Coming Soon!
Formed in the spring of 2009, The Whiskey Gentry is a band of Atlanta misfits that defy categorization in Atlanta's saturated music market. From bluegrass to folk to old-time country, The Whiskey Gentry combine accomplished musicianship with high-energy stage shows that are sure to provide many a night of pickin' and dancin' for the southeast music scene. Having recently been chosen by Paste Magazine as the "Best of What's Next," The Whiskey Gentry have established themselves among the Atlanta music elite. They have shared the stage with artists such as Doc Watson, Old Crow Medicine Show, Rhett Miller of the Old 97s, John Popper, Ed Roland of Collective Soul, Chatham County Line, Slobberbone, and many other national touring acts.
The band is currently celebrating the release of its first full-length record, "Please Make Welcome." Engineered and co-produced by John Keane, who's credits include work with R.E.M., Indigo Girls, Uncle Tupelo and Widespread Panic amongst others, the 14-track album is a culmination of two years worth of writing and recording. "Please Make Welcome" ably captures their exciting live shows intermixing country, bluegrass, old-time, gospel and rock, often within the same song. These elements are woven together with Lauren Staley Morrow's innocently stunning vocals, rendering an expressive compilation of folk tales.
