The Whiskey Prophets

THE WHISKEY PROPHETS: Founded in 2010 by singer/songwriter Brad Roberson; the band has had a few evolutions to the roster since it's creation. However, today the alt-country Texas band is comprised of singer/songwriter Brad Roberson on rhythm guitar, John Hosford on lead guitar and supporting vocals, Mike Norris on drums and Todd Kelley on bass.

Blending country, rock and invoking the alt-country spirit of power house bands like the Drive-By-Truckers, Jason Isbell, American Aquarium, The Whiskey Prophets are a thick southern dose of Americana awesomeness with a powerful sound all their own.

The band released its first full-length CD titled "Regrets, Rehab, and a Refill" in the Spring of 2011. The 15 track rookie release was raw and largely un-produced album that left it's audience feeling like it was directly ripped form Roberson's diary pages and set to music.

The 2nd album “Recoil” was released on July 31st, 2014. The sophomore album was an evolution by way of music composition and by way of musicians. Similar in it's raw production, the band built on original, confessional lyrics offered their first cover song "Highway Junkie", a high-energy rendition of the Chris Knight classic.

Their 3rd studio album, Gasoline Diary, was released in 2016. This album offered 11 new originals with a higher degree of studio polish for your listening pleasure. Gasoline Diary delivers not only in studio mastering, but the album also ranks high in lyrical content with the confessionals songs we've come to expect coupled with metaphoric narratives of emotion and perseverance.

Whiskey Prophets are in good company, having shared the stage with some tremendous talent. Jason Boland and The Stragglers, Chris Knight, Mike & The Moonpies, Hayes Carll, Brandon Jenkins, Cody Johnson, Whiskey Myers and more.

The Whiskey Prophets are currently in the studio working on the next album. Stay tuned for more new original music from this alt-country Texas band.
