"Austin's Whiskey Shivers are bluegrass-fueled Americana for a generation that grew up listening to punk rock. This group of 20 somethings plays banjos, fiddles and washboards at breakneck speeds while singing high, lonesome harmonies about love and video games."
A diverse group of masterfully talented musicians who stand out like a sore thumb from the traditional bluegrass world, Whiskey Shivers have made a name for themselves with a genre-pushing sound that the Washington Post called "apocalyptic Americana" and NPR described as "frenetic bluegrass" with a "punk spirit.
"Rich, layered music with heavy themes"
"A bluegrass record you can mosh to."
-The Bluegrass Situation
"They've been killing it in Austin for a few years now. They have that spirit of busking, that punk spirit of 'let's lay it on the line, let's play our instruments hard and messy and just have a great time."
-Ann Powers, NPR World Café
