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......

It seems that some people are feeling anxious about their age... Adam and Jessica suddenly realized that they have two kids, a house, a car, kats, paychecks and everything else grown up, but still act as if they were still young. Mad and johno live like two teenagers and Robban simply ignores it all...

In any case we wrote a song about age. Mad wanted to write something in the style of Bon Jovi / Journey - ish. In a stunning display of responsibility Mad smoked cigarettes in secret and ended up passed out on the bathroom floor. She was hungover for two days after that...

But the song turned out exactly as planned! Jessica who always maintains that she can't sing participated in the hockey choir...
