SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!

The Whiskey Darlings is fundraising for our next album, and we need your help! Making a new album can be expensive. We do our best to keep the process simple and the costs low, but often the cost of recording, producing, mastering, and releasing an album is more than the average musician can afford.

To make our next album possible, we're seeking donations as a kind of CD pre-sale!  Please click the donate button to contribute any amount. Thank you so much for your support!

 


ANY DONATION AMOUNT WILL RECEIVE
A COPY OF THE NEW ALBUM
COMING OUT IN APRIL 2018!

The Whiskey Darlings is a downhome duo from Portland, OR, featuring sweet harmonies, acoustic guitars, and mandolin.  When Rob Rainwater and Michele Van Kleef—both popular, local solo performers in their own right— discovered their shared love for singer/songwriter music of the 1960s and 70s, they instantly began crafting original music in the same vein.  Rainwater brings his musical background in blues and bluegrass, while Van Kleef offers her stunning soulful vocals and background in rock and folk.

The Whiskey Darlings performed live on the Premier Performance Stage at Portland Radio Project in November 2015. Host Kelly Jones said, "With their delightful harmonies, storytelling lyrics, interactive performance style, and lighthearted humor – these two musicians had the audience roaring with laughter and singing along throughout their live performance."
