La Bohéme Moderne
The Whiskey Social is …not a band it is an idea, a concept envisioned by myself, Megg. I believe the most important things in this world are beauty and passion. I believe in living to the extremes and making a mess. I believe in admiring the moon at 2am alone in the wilderness of Vermont. I believe in howling songs out while passing the wine bottle on The Seine until daybreak. I believe in highs that let your energy flow for hours until there is nothing left. I believe in the beauty of the lows that leave you sobbing silently in your car. I believe in doing things that don’t make sense because they feel good. That is what I believe in and that is what we dare to express through these songs, through our energy as a collective. We are a constantly evolving group of musicians as I am a constantly evolving human being. My music is the only way I know how to express what my life is. This world holds less and less beauty every day and that is why when we find it, it is that much more special. Moments of beauty and passion are becoming fewer and fewer, and through the whiskey social I get to experience them daily. I hope we can share that with you.
This EP was recorded my last visit to Paris. Lucas and I sat in his apartment in Montmartre, the new home of Loops Studio and pushed through 4 brand new recordings. I Hope you enjoy them.
We are not exactly sure the title. We think Sweet Megg & The Serenaders or Stompers or Vagabonds.
And sorry for the sound quality…its all we got so far
