The Liquorsmiths
The Liquorsmiths (formerly Second Tuesdays) are a Folk Rock group born from a collision of contrasting ideas, styles and musicality. They been described as Wilco meets Neil Young meets My Brightest Diamond, but retain a style all their own. Formed in early 2006, members and contributorshail from all over the United States (San Francisco, CA, Denver, CO, Phoenix, AZ, San Diego, CA, and Atlanta, GA), utilizing technology in various forms to collaborate before meeting periodically to tour their newest material throughout the world.
Although notoriously an underground project by in large, performing and releasing material as bonus/secret tracks accompanying various other project releases, founding
members Andrew Thams and Ryan Fisher have recently made moves to bring the group to the forefront of their focus.
The newest single “Devil I Do,” has received international praise as it paves the way for their first full length album (tentatively self-titled), set for release in January of 2014.
