The Richmond, VA based Americana band has spent the last decade harvesting a sound, which is deeply rooted in the folk traditions of Appalachia, and the raw elements of American Rock and Roll.
2015 brings The Whiskey Rebellion’s upcoming release “Where the Devil Roams”, an EP comprised of all original music, features the single “Sometimes”, and is set for release this summer.

Richmond Times Dispatch-
Give just a casual listen to The Whiskey Rebellion's recently released, self-titled debut album, and you'll be tempted to plug the band into the category reserved for pure bluegrass. While Phillips says bluegrass is the members' common denominator, there's much more to The Whiskey Rebellion than twang and high lonesome.
