The Nashville Music Guide calls The Liquorsmith’s catalogue a “collection of some of the best music you’ll hear this year.” -Sherryl Craig, NMG
“…Only The Liquorsmith can so expertly consummate the event of drinking, finding and implementing the perfect touches to make sure your inebriation is unfettered and rivalrous.” -MacEagon Voyce, AXZ
“…Thams delivers such purity and honesty in his poetic lyrics that you can’t help but be drawn into the story he is sharing.” -Alex Feigin, Pancakes and Whisky, NYC
The Liquorsmiths emerge from behind the bar to deliver their song, but to our gratification they do so in the loudest form possible; uncompromising in approach and pouring with intent. Like a perfectly crafted cocktail, balanced, slightly overproof, and yet exactly what you need after a long work week.
Andrew Carl Thams is the songwriter behind The Liquorsmiths. He writes about what matters to him and wraps his words in a presentation of song. With perpetually itchy feet, he currently hails from Atlanta, GA, by way of southern, northern and eastern regions of the United States.
The Liquorsmiths sound is commonly categorized among modern Americana, but has been labeled as indie rock, outlaw country, and even “ramshackle pop” (Kimberly Chung, SF Gate)… though truth be told Thams would himself prefer to quote Jeff Tweedy’s, “Somewhere between punk rock and country.”
The Liquorsmiths have made a national presence through performances on stages of all sizes, most recently sharing bills with the likes of The White Buffalo, Gil Landry (Old Crow Medicine Show), Stealth Ulvang (The Lumineers), Mt. Joy, Futurebirds, The Wild Reeds and countless others. They have received endorsements from Musiciansfriend.com in collaboration with Fender Guitars, Second Chance Brewing (who featured him in a recent commercial: https://youtu.be/oK6fRM0rG_s), and Inhesion Studios ATL.
Thams performs solo and with full band accompaniment providing for a sound catered to any size stage and audience. Full band performances frequently feature dual percussionists as well as upright bass and layered harmonies.
THE SILENT COMEDY
Brothers Joshua and Jeremiah Zimmerman and their band The Silent Comedy know trouble. Facing that trouble head on permeates their work. Rough-hewn, expansive American rock & roll with dirt under its nails and whiskey on its breath, the music of The Silent Comedy channels the iron spine of the blues, Honky-Tonk sweat, and punk swagger into a euphoric declaration that when trouble rears its worrisome head it’s time to crack knuckles, lock arms, and lift our voices high.
The brothers spent their formative years traveling the world with missionary parents before settling in California. In search of catharsis, the teens found solace in songwriting and stage lights. The young band proved capable of raucous shows and word spread. Years of touring followed, performing with Dave Matthews Band, Queens of the Stone Age, Mumford and Sons, Arctic Monkeys, and Vampire Weekend, and festival plays at Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, Under The Big Sky, Summer Meltdown and more.
