Newcastle’s Whiskey Business drop new single

Newcastle’s Whiskey Business have quickly become one of the most loved bands on the local country music circuit, and last week they released their new single For So Long.

Already charting on a number of community radio stations, the track For So Long is available for purchase via iTunes and Google Play.

The recording brings together the best of the band including an excellent guitar track from Lennie Edgerton and a highly polished vocal from Anita Tresidder. The rest of the band including Romney Watts, Ian Tresidder and James Dennett provide the fun and whimsical backing that the band have become known for in a live setting.

Up until this release, the band’s material has been very much a fusion of rock and country and while they continue to foster that mix, for me, this single is firmly in the country camp, which is not a bad thing for these guys.

Whiskey Business have a string of dates across the country in promotion of the single. You can see all the dates by visiting their Facebook page, and you can catch the band locally at Cessnock Hotel on 24 June.
