The Whiskey Daredevils are well known on the indie rock circuit, constantly out on the road. The band has showcased at SXSW, played every noteworthy indie rock club you can think of in America and Europe, and has played with a who’s who of genre friendly acts like Southern Culture on the Skids, Dale Watson, Blackberry Smoke, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Brian Setzer, and almost anyone else that you can think of that sounds anything close to them.

Texas Plant vocalist/harmonica player Matthew Leeb has a wizened voice aged beyond its (likely) years, and its “harmonies” are unison barroom shout-alongs. The music — provided by acoustic bassist Upright Pete, banjo & accordion player Sagan Ruby, percussionist Gavin Dautartas, and guitarist Danny McDonnell is chunky clunky, and spare. And they go great with a glass of rye whiskey. We dig them. You will too.
