Saturday Music: Chamomile and Whiskey

Chamomile and Whiskey’s eclectic sound blends Americana and Southern Rock with Irish, Gypsy, and Old-Time all wrapped up in a raging live performance.

In 2011 in Nelson County, VA, Koda Kerl and Marie Borgman poured some Evan Williams in a hot cup of tea and decided to start a band. The idea was to organically grow a sound based around lively shows that would not be restricted by genre. They joined forces with Irishmen Ryan Lavin and started ferociously playing as much as they could. After a year of building a reputation playing rowdy bar sets they signed with County Wide Records and cut their first EP “The Barn Sessions.” The band quickly gained recognition regionally and after releasing their debut full-length record “Wandering Boots,” they began touring. A few years of cross-country tours and the band started to hit their stride, averaging nearly 150 shows a year. Their sophomore record “Sweet Afton” is slated for a mid 2017 release, with the first singles coming soon.
