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......

See below for music, lyrics and photos from each time The Whiskey Sessions have met, in reverse chronological order. Click on a title to see more information about that specific song, and please leave a comment. We hope you appreciate our music!

After the latest fiascos what with a party that spun out of control and a song that was never finished we needed something to get us back on our feet. johno had an old song from early years in Stenungsund (ca 1992) that seemed like a good candidate. We added a new verse and generally had a blast (that might be a redundant comment...) We were at Peen's place again with the whole original crew and without any guests. The summer heat had us undressing more and more as the evening progressed, and there are some photos that we'd rather not publish. The song is about having a very large and very demanding girlfriend. Any truth to this?
