“…blending rock’s bristle with country’s storytelling…
songs that course across a broad span of classic country,
classic rock, blues and Americana music… a compelling gumbo…” LA Times
Nashville-based Americana outfit the Whiskey Wolves of the West are set to bring their raw, authentic music to Nashville stages for three shows this summer (see tour dates below). The group is the brainchild of veteran singer-songwriters Leroy Powell and Tim Jones, and their sound is something that can only be earned by a thousand nights in smoky bars and a million miles on bald bus tires. Disciples at what could be the last supper of country music, their tunes are high and lonesome, yearning and dark, twangy and gritty and oh-so-satisfying.
Studio musician/producer extraordinaire Leroy Powell can be heard on so many favorite records: Sturgill Simpson, Shooter Jennings, Waylon Jennings, Whiskey Myers, and countless tracks with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb. Bandmate Tim Jones, a vocal powerhouse, has shone on his notable collaborations with Chris Robinson (The Black Crowes), Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), and Truth & Salvage.
Since April 2016, the band has had an ongoing residency at The Sutler in Nashville almost every Saturday night. Currently on break for several weeks, the residency resumes on July 29th. They’ve had many special guests on stage with them at The Sutler, including folks like Slim Gambill (Lady Antebellum), Kenny Olson (Kid Rock), Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), Johnny Duke (Lee Ann Womack), Michael Webb (John Fogerty, Poco), Robben Ford, Wheeler Walker Jr., Jimmy Wallace (Joe Walsh), and more.
Upcoming Whiskey Wolves of the West Nashville shows:
July 25, 8:30pm, Family Wash (with Emily West, The Line)
August 1, 8:30pm, Family Wash (with Shelly Fairchild, Sally Jaye)
September 5, time TBD, Basement East for Whiskey Jam
