Diamonds and Whiskey
Where the swamps of Louisiana meet the hills of North Carolina, a new sound emerges.
Diamonds and Whiskey have their mail sent to Charlotte, North Carolina as they black snake moan all over the country, stomping and storming a sweet strong molasses of what they call their "Dark Country Voodoo." For them, it's tour, tour, tour!
Made up of Von Bury's finely chopped and grinding guitar riffs, and deliciously glazed and fired up by singer Jenny Webb's swamp-siren vocals, their pine and swagger is anchored and swung by drummer Christopher McKinney's beats and brushes.
Dark Country Voodoo is also the name of their debut, and its combination of barroom beauty and backwoods danger is a potent blend of the previous groups the front duo did time in: For Jenny, Henry River Honey, and for Von Bury, Lovesucker, Red All Over, and Chelsea Daggers. Christopher was in The Coming Dawn, and Blue Static, among others. Charlotte duo Diamonds and Whiskey is introducing Dark Country Voodoo to the world.
For the album Dark Country Voodoo, they hooked up with Seattle music maven Graig Markel (the Animals at Night, Dead Ship Sailing), a multi-genre producer and engineer with incredibly spontaneous and creative instincts for covering sounds, especially roots music. Von Bury says, "He's world class, pays attention to all the details, literally fills in all the blanks. All the slide work and acoustic guitar work is Graig."
For further description of the Diamonds and Whiskey alchemy, Von Bury offers up handles "Classic alt-country, swampy New Orleans-rooted rock with an indie sensibility." "It's a true-blood kind of sound," Jenny says. They tap into the red, red blood of American music, touching base with everything intoxicating and heart-palpitating from The Zac Brown Band, The Black Angels, Allison Kraus, Tanya Tucker, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Darius Rucker, to Garth Brooks.
