Album Notes
Omaha, Nebraska is dead. Nothing worth anything has broken out of the I-29 I-80 corridor since 2001.So says the city paper. Omaha, Neb. is the next (insert music city of choice). The cultural scene condensates like a sweating can of Schlitz. So says the multitudes of supposed tastemakers. Truth is Omaha, Neb. probably just drinks too much.

Through this confused and contradicted enlightenment, The Whipkey Three presents its 10 song, 36 minute self-titled debut. Even in the age of overdone, the power of a proper rock trio still cannot fail. With an eye on efficiency, these three craft a tunesmith’s tale of all their fine city has to offer. Vanity prayers, never ending evenings and all those mornings we must have missed- songwriter Matt Whipkey casts these hopes, doubts and shadows with an impassioned confidence. Produced in the city’s finest studios and mixed by AJ Mogis (The Good Life, Cursive), the debut captures the nervous energy of a band discovering their chemistry. Across ten tracks, The Whipkey Three capably wrestle the plague and pleasure of one’s upper Mid-American twenties.

Combining forces in summer 2007, two of Omaha\'s most recognized bands- Matt Whipkey and Anonymous American and Sarah Benck and The Robbers- formed a juggernaut. Between Whipkey, Benck and Scott “Zip” Zimmerman, their accomplishments and accolades are nothing less than numerous. With four Omaha Entertainment Awards (Best Rock, Americana, Singer-Songwriter, AAA), a pair of national non-profit campaigns (United Way, YWCA), and countless live performances, this band is no novice. However, the resume would amount to nothing if this trio’s music was not half as strong. Balancing melody, aggression, subtlety and power, Whipkey’s songwriting easily places the band in an upper echelon.
