About

Update 10/13/17

Please Donate to the Fire Victims of Sonoma County

Out of respect to our families, friends and fans that lost their homes and livelihoods during the recent fires in our hometown of Sonoma County, we have decided to cancel our Kickstarter campaign. Poor Man's Whiskey will be concentrating our time and efforts into giving back and helping to rebuild the community that has supported us for the past 16 years. All donations from this campaign will be refunded. Please consider donating to someone who at the moment is in more need. We are very aware that playing music is a huge privilege and therefore our dreams of releasing this album can go on hold. Thank you for your support, we will try this again later at a better time. Out of the ashes rises the Phoenix!!

Dear Whiskey family,  

We are thrilled to announce that we will be releasing a new studio album in 2018 "Juniper Mountain." It is by far our most artistic, profound, and best album to date. We are excited to invite you to be a part of this momentous occasion by helping us release it to the world!!

"Juniper Mountain" is our 7th album in our 16-year history as a band. Traditionally we have always self funded and produced our own cd's in our home studio. This album is our magnum opus and therefore we felt it necessary to utilize the expertise of a professional studio and sound engineer. We have hibernated much of the year at the incredible "Tiny Telephone Studios" in San Francisco, where the entire album was recorded analog (non digital) and produced like our favorite albums of the 60's and 70's.  

"Juniper Mountain" is a concept album set in the Civil War era of American History. We have been working on and writing the songs for this album for almost two decades. The album focuses on the universal themes of the human condition; love, loss, and most of all, hope. Now more than ever we feel that the time is right to release this album. The world needs more HOPE!! 

  • HOW CAN YOU HELP?

To help cover some costs involved in such an ambitious project, we are humbly asking our extended family, friends, and fans for your support by becoming a backer in our Kickstarter campaign. We are extremely proud of this project. We charted new artistic visions and sounds on it and we cannot wait for you to hear it!!

  •  Please visit the REWARDS section of our Kickstarter campaign 

We have some very exciting rewards in this campaign including digital downloads of the album, signed cds and merchandise bundles. We are incredibly excited to release this album on vinyl!! We will also be hosting a vinyl release party at our home base in Petaluma, which our backers are invited to. There are some options to have us come play a house concert or party at your house.   

  • Please watch the Video

Please watch the video included in this campaign to give you a better idea of what this project is all about and what it means to us. Thank you again for your continued support. We could not do this without you! 

Sincerely,

-Jason Beard and Josh Brough
