Chamomile & Whiskey

Chamomile and Whiskey came about like all good, simple things--by making two things into one. In the case of this group, Marie Borgman and Koda Kerl--native musicians of Nelson County, Virginia--combined chamomile tea with Evan Williams whiskey one evening. They decided that what they had made tasted like their sound. Although the group has evolved since forming in 2011, it, like the subtle mixture of herbal tea and whiskey, has matured and found its own sly, subtle voice. If a band has feet, then Chamomile and Whiskey has both on them firmly on the ground. But if a band is a living thing like a plant--which the best bands are--Chamomile and Whiskey has grown from roots set deep in Americana, blues, Celtic, old-time and the singer-songwriter tradition of the south. The group has developed a more electric sound with Drew Kimball on guitar and Brian Gregory on Bass, and enhanced the foundational fiddle and guitar sound with drummer Stuart Gunter. Their last studio album was recorded in 2019 in Nashville by Ken Coomer of Wilco and Uncle Tupelo. It sounds like music that is lived in and lived through. Their sound tastes like Chamomile and Whiskey.

Devon Sproule

Devon Sproule works in songwriting, instrument-learning, and hospice music at The Front Porch and MIMA Music. She and her husband Paul Curreri make music on Patreon and every once in a while she records an album and goes on tour like the old days. She can tie her shoes really fast and in another geekier life would have been a board game / martial arts / birding enthusiast.
