Gather round the fire and pick up your guitars and hand drums. Pull out your flasks, your bottles and your smokes. It’s time to join the circle: The Whiskey Circle.
The Whiskey Circle is a family gathered together by their common love for good music; a circle of good friends telling stories, drinking and playing music. With female-driven vocals, a groovy rhythm section and infectious guitar riffs this California female-fronted rock band delivers a wave of sound full of surf, psych, folk and pop influences.
The Whiskey Circle released their Self-Titled EP in January of 2014. Over the next 6 months The Whiskey Circle continued to perform around California at venues like House of Blues, The Casbah, Soda Bar and Pappy and Harriet’s while also recording their Blue EP. They released the Blue EP in October of 2014 through a promotional concert with 91X. On June 17, 2016 they released their “High Deserts” EP and crafted a new lineup to complete their sound.
The band consists of Leanna Patterson on vocals and guitar, Brett Patterson on guitar/bass and vocals, Nick Hankins on guitar/bass and Ben Johnson on drums. The new lineup just released their newest and most polished album Into the Valley on June 6, 2017.
