The Whiskey Sessions started when three old (by this point) musicians met to get reacquianted and drink som whiskey. The whole think quickly turned into a recurring even about booze, music, and on-the-spot creativity. We get together, pop the cork, and get cracking on writing a song. The goal is to compose, write lyrics, perform and record an entire song in a single evening, preferably before the neighbors start banging on the wall or the audio interface burns up.

We often mix and master when we've had a chance to sober up, but we are proud to challenge ourselves to achieve all of this in a short period of time. And it's a lot of fun too......

+lyrics

Den h�r g�ngen var det ingen som drack whiskey men det gick �ven med tequila. Kanske blev det f�r mycket f�rra g�ngen? Med bara v�ra r�ster fick vi till en hip hop-d�nga med schlagerrefr�ng. Vi byggde trumset, bas och orgel av v�ra egna ljud och anv�nde inte n�gra instrument.

Inspirationen till titel, handling och text kom ur en bok om universum som Adam impoviserade ur i f�rsta versen. Vi var hos Jonas och Maria och deras tre katter. johno satt vid datorn och byggde ihop allt i Ableton Live. Du det distar, d�!
