The Whiskey Prophets
THE WHISKEY PROPHETS: Founded in 2010 by singer/songwriter Brad Roberson; the band has had a few evolutions to the roster since it's creation. However, today the Americana, alt-country band from Texas is comprised of singer/songwriter Brad Roberson on rhythm guitar, John Hosford on lead guitar and supporting vocals, Todd Kelley on bass and supporting vocals , Mike Norris on drums, and Chris Gilcrease on lap-steel / dobro / pedal-steel.
Pulling from a melting-pot of influences from songwriter roots music to classic country and rock, the Prophets take a page from the books of power-house, songwriter bands like Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton and American Aquarium. The Whiskey Prophets are a thick southern dose of Americana awesomeness with a powerful sound all their own and great writing to boot. The rookie band released its first full-length CD in the Spring of 2011 and followed it with their 2nd album in 2014. The sophomore album was an evolution by way of music composition and by way of musicians but similar in it's raw production. The band is built on original, confessional lyrics but this album offered their first cover song "Highway Junkie", a high-energy rendition of the Chris Knight classic. Their 3rd studio album, Gasoline Diary, was released in 2016. This album offered 11 new originals with a higher degree of studio polish. Gasoline Diary delivers not only in studio mastering, but the album also ranks high in lyrical content with the confessionals songs we've come to expect coupled with metaphoric narratives of emotion and perseverance. Whiskey Prophets are currently recording their 4th album. The sound is bigger, the vocal harmonies are bigger and the writing compelling. Anxiously anticipated for an early 2019 release, the band is hard at work and great things are coming for Whiskey fans!
