The impeccable songwriting combination of David Sparrow, David Bloomfield and Rob Hughes coupled with Sparrow's wholesome full-bodied voice have helped to make The Whiskey Saints a shining star in the Los Angeles music world. Add Jeff Bell on the drums and you've got a band that's as equally explosive as it is expressive as they deliver their rock infused country, that enjoys honeyed-harmonies just as much as thunderous guitars.
In addition to the traditional rock model their arrangements call upon piano, mandolin and organ to bring Sparrow's melodies to life and make their songs feel like a long forgotten friend that you've just met for the first time. Their Alt-Country sound favors rock to twang and The Whiskey Saints' commitment to the integrity of their craft resides within their demure character. With influences like Ryan Adams, The Jayhawks, Wilco and Tom Petty it's not hard to understand why The Whiskey Saints cherish the American tradition of lyricism and catchy melodies.
Their first full length studio album, "West", was produced by up and coming producer Jim Dineen and released October of 2008. It chronicles the pursuit of something you love in a city that doesn't always love you back. Their credits also include the 6 song "Bootleg EP" which captures the magic of their songwriting with minimal production and raw performances.
Based in Los Angeles they are currently promoting their new record by performing as often as they can and seeking song placements.
