Watch | Diamonds and Whiskey – “Whiskey Down”

From Charlotte, Diamonds and Whiskey define North Carolina with their music. Americana at its heart, the duo comprised of Jenny Webb and Von Bury blend the myriad of elements that define their roots amalgam with a darker style and grace steeped in whiskey country and bourbon blues.

In the appropriately titled ‘Whiskey Down’, the band’s audience gets to dive headfirst into this definitive sound. Accompanied by fiddle (Shealee Cousino) and lap steel (Graig Markel), the soundscape that Lauren and Bury develop soars with the former’s sinewy vocals and the latter’s multi-instrumental talents. Together, the musicians create an atmosphere that glistens in the darkness of its sooty themes.

In another totally on-brand move, Diamonds and Whiskey’s new album, Dark Country Voodoo, is out now via Bandcamp.
