THE WHISKEY TREATY ROADSHOW IS A COLLABORATIVE BAND THAT BRINGS TOGETHER FIVE MASSACHUSETTS SINGER-SONGWRITERS IN THE VEIN OF AMERICANA, ROCK AND ROOTS-FOLK MUSIC.
With Tory Hanna, Billy Keane, David Tanklefsky, Chris Merenda, and Greg Smith
No Depression - Written by Billy Rosenbeck - 3/1/16
While this is the first official release under the Whiskey Treaty Roadshow banner, the bands membersTory Hanna, Billy Keane, Chris Merenda, Greg Smith, and Dave Tanklefskyhave totaled 18 albums while working as solo artists, frontmen, sidemen, and founding members of now-defunct bands. The Heart of the Run is a combination of that veteran savvy, but with a newcomers kinetic energy, which results in the albums cathartic feeling, like this is what the Whiskey Treaty Roadshow was put together to do.
The choice to lead with a live album was two-fold: first, due to the economics of independent artistry, and second, as a quintessential representation of the Whiskey Treaty Roadshow, which was founded under the principles of Brotherhood, Music, and Fine Spirits.
That essence is captured on The Heart of the Run, where they lead with Fine Spirits: Greg Smiths chugging memoir Whiskey Breath and Cigarettes, opens the album with bended notes and penetrating lyrics, tapping into the romance and celebration of hard living. As his guitar rings out with the songs final chord, Greg confidentially shouts, Welcome to the Whiskey Treaty Roadshow!"--suggesting this is a place to be, rather than something to listen to
