Hello! Is this thing on? Ahem. Carrie and Lawrence here, from the Detroit based band, The Whiskey Charmers and we wanted to tell you a little bit about our project. We have spent the last two years writing and performing. We have toured across the country passing many a Waffle House and Super 8, through the badlands of South Dakota, the mountains of Kentucky and even the mean streets of Columbus, Ohio where we tangled with a Jazz Fusion band and still came out alive. We have slept in parking lots,  narrowly avoided highway road critters (and sometimes not avoided them) and hunted for late night fast food, because we love sharing our music with you and wouldn't have it any other way.

So....after a few years of hard work, we are looking for your help to put out our first full length album! We have selected nine songs out of our many originals and have begun recording, but we need your help to finish the project and release it this March. 

Please contribute whatever you can. We will continue to write, perform, accidentally leave gear behind, then go back and get it, and tour to as many places as we possibly can to share our music with you.

Sold gold,

The Whiskey Charmers

Risks and challenges

The recording is done so we forsee no problems. The money we raise will be used to pay the studio and also to pay for CD duplication. Anything that may arise will be a minor hiccup.

We have allowed for plenty of time to have everything ready between the end of our Kickstarter and our record Release on March 7, 2015.

    Digital download of the album plus copy of the CD, one of our t-shirts, some Whiskey Charmers stickers, and one of those crooked pictures Carrie takes while we're on the road.

    At this point we are still thinking of you while Rawhide does his best to check us in the motel. He forgot his dentures when he left his place so it's kinda hard for the desk clerk to understand him.

    Pledge $400 or more About $400

    Four signed copies of the CD

    Four digital downloads for family and friends

    Four t-shirts

    A small photo album of Carries crooked road pictures

    Handwritten lyrics to the songs on the album

    We will also sing your praises in the liner notes of the album so the whole world will know all you've done for us.

    Carrie and Lawrence will play an hour long duo show at the venue of your choosing (as long as it's warm and there are adequate power outlets) at a time that works with our schedule. All we ask is that you help us with travel expenses if we have to go more than 150 miles outside the metro Detroit area.

    It's the next morning and the whole band is now at the Waffle House. We are toasting you with our coffee (Carrie is using the flask of rye whiskey she always keeps on her), telling our waiter Daniel the tales or your generosity while he serves us hash browns cut in perfect circles.
    Rawhide is gone for sure now, and though many of our personal items are missing, including our bass player, we chalk it up as a cost of doing business
