2013 WAMI AWARD WINNERS FOR AMERICANA/BLUEGRASS ARTIST OF THE YEAR!
Roots Country Music, Born of Gin Halls and Juke Joints –
Hank Williams passion, Carter family harmonies, with a little Hee Haw mixed in for good measure. The WhiskeyBelles are an all-female traditional country and Americana trio based out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Belles are widely known for captivating shows featuring their own take on classic and obscure vintage-country, americana, folk-revival and roots-country tunes, with their witty originals sprinkled in. They’ve been compared with the Pistol Annies, Dixie Chicks and The Trio (Dolly Parton, Emmy Lou Harris & Linda Ronstadt).The WhiskeyBelles have personalities as big as the Texan skyline - they have a great time on stage, and love to share the fun with their audience.
The 'Belles started their musical shenanigans in May of 2011 and by July of the following year they released their debut album, “Whiskey Woman,” which was named one of the 10 best local albums of 2012 by Milwaukee Magazine.
They released their second album on November 30th, 2013. This release is a raucous Christmas album aptly titled, “Nothin’ Says Christmas Like Whiskey”. Sure to be a hit for the holidays!
Besides recording a new album, the WhiskeyBelles have kept a busy schedule performing over 70 shows in 2013.
They also won the 2013 WAMI award for Americana/Bluegrass Artist of the Year and have opened for country stars such as Montgomery Gentry, The Lost Trailers and The Kentucky Headhunters.
“One band that makes their performance look like more fun than legally allowed is the Whiskeybelles. Blessed with decent chops, excellent harmonies and outstanding camaraderie and charisma the Whiskeybelles delight audiences every night out.”

"I mentioned their perfect harmonies. I mean they were perfect. Yet -- and this is their gift-- the Whiskeybelles are wonderfully loose, making it sound and look easy so that the audience is engaged and involved. Really good set……..and they're definitely on my "go see them again" list."
