Biography

The Witherees started as a busking outfit nearly a decade ago. After playing many a sidewalk, open mic, and punkhouse, The Witherees turned into a full fledged band. In March of 2011 Jimi Cavazos was asked to play drums to a few songs written by long time friend and band member, Mikey Castillo...the two have been writing stories of life on the gulf coast ever since. Both Cavazos and Castillo are/have been members of other regional acts that play various genres. The main influences for The Witherees music are lost loves, alcoholism, friends, and life in general. It's a stripped down, no nonsense punk duo, playing acoustic instruments.
