Feeling a bit camera shy


Working hard to deliver genuine, personal, and musically satisfying country music, the distinct sound of The Warhorses is one you are sure to remember. Casey Shaw (vocals, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, songwriter), a US Army and Iraq War veteran, founded the band in 2012. Reconnecting with Sonny Bihl (guitar) and Seth “Tobo” Tobin (bass, songwriter), after several years of each suffering through broken bands, “missed connections” and other social media escapades, the line-up was completed with the addition of Phil Medina (drums) and Lucas Seiferman (lead guitar and harmony vocals). Releasing their first EP, REGARDLESS, in 2014, The Warhorses made their way onto Texas radio with the Top 50 single, “Leave Me Alone,” and a Top 75 with “Heart Like Mine.”

In late 2015 they recorded The Warhorses with Dave Percefull of yellow DOG Studios in Wimberley, Texas. The outcome is a hearty and wide-ranging reflection of songs about love in some way, shape, or form.  Whether it’s the loss of love, love gone wrong, or trying to salvage love, there is something for everyone on the record.

Quintessential country fare is covered on “Leaving In Your Eyes” (the first radio single from the album), “I Drink Whisky” and “Still Be Loving Me” as losing love, is tackled with grit and heart. The sentiments of a mutual parting are best displayed on “Last Goodbye” and “Walk Away.” Steering away from the point of view of the person that was left or hurt, “Driving Blind” is told by the one who was leaving while “Steppin’ Away” is kind of the “kiss my ass” song on the record.  Songs like “Ami’s Song,” “Hear You Sing Along,” and “Not Tonight” are interpretive; defining whether they were written to fix something or reassure someone, well, that’s up to you.

Creating an identity forged by a desire to be real in this era of pick-up trucks, short shorts, and backward baseball caps is a risky gamble. With style and substance in their corner, The Warhorses have, indeed, achieved this feat. In turn, they also remain steadfast in their conviction to stay true to themselves, and their fans, by consistently presenting music that is universal and relatable.
