From the Isle of Skye, Texas, New Jersey, Wisconsin, and India, five souls traveled far and wide looking for something.

What they found was a home in each other and a shared musical vision.

What they’ve become is Whiskey Bear.

Logic can’t quite explain how or why paths cross; logic is for apparatuses and systems. Making music is about pathos and not for the faint of heart; stories will be told and tears will be shed.

Since their first studio album release Hill Shack Arson in 2017, a feel-good bluegrass jam, Whiskey Bear has written and recorded over 40 songs. In 2021, amidst the global pandemic, Whiskey Bear stretched their range and style with Terra Imperfectum: Worlds Away but Still in Tune, a 16-song tour de force Americana album. Today, Whiskey Bear strives to hit that next chord, a new verse, the thrill of the next song as they move along together on their journey.

This is Whiskey Bear
