Disciples at what could be The Last Supper of country music, their sound is high and lonesome.
Brainchild of veteran singer songwriters, Leroy Powell and Tim Jones, The Whiskey Wolves of The West are delivering a raw, authentic sound...something that can only be earned by a thousand nights in smokey bars and a million miles on bald bus tires.
Studio musician/producer extraordinaire, Leroy Powell, is heard on so many of your favorite records. Sturgill Simpson, Shooter Jennings, Waylon Jennings, Whiskey Myers and countless tracks with Grammy Awards Producer Dave Cobb. Vocal powerhouse, Tim Jones, shines on his notable collaborations with Chris Robinson (The Black Crowes), Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), and Truth & Salvage
"The first notes sounded for Day 1 of the weekend-long gathering came early Friday afternoon from country rocker Leroy Powell and his band that calls itself Whiskey Wolves of the West. They come straight outta Redlands to the fest, and turned in a set blending rock’s bristle with country’s storytelling.
Powell, an associate of Shooter Jennings, shares Jennings’ penchant both for waist-length hair and songs that course across a broad span of classic country, classic rock, blues and Americana music. In conjunction with co-lead singer Tim Jones, the Whiskey Wolves forge a compelling gumbo that sounded an appropriately expansive opening for the 10th anniversary edition of California’s [Stagecoach] music festival."
