Rebecca Haviland and Whiskey Heart
Whiskey Heart : No Artificial Anything

Rebecca Haviland is a petite, polite, pixie-haired 20-something singer who, when she opens her mouth, channels a furious, beat-up, fed-up blues diva standing in a snowstorm at a bus station at 4 in the morning two dollars short of a ticket to nowhere. Her songwriting partner/producer/singer/songwriter, Chris Anderson, only stops playing 4-stringed electric and acoustic instruments long enough to eat and listen to Tom Waits, Warren Zevon, Willie Nelson, Randy Newman and David Gray.

Together, Haviland and Anderson comprise the hotter-than-hell alt-country act Whiskey Heart, who’ve been performing around Manhattan and elsewhere long enough to hone a tight, crisp live show, headlining at venues in NYC and touring the US, where people dig their down-home, all-natural act exploding with heart, soul and guts.

Their debut album, “Rebecca Haviland and Whiskey Heart,” self-produced and co-written by Haviland and Anderson, was recorded live in the studio with full band, featuring Todd Caldwell on Hammond B3 (Crosby Stills & Nash), Rich Hinman on pedal steel and electric guitar (Rosanne Cash, Ben Kweller), and Kenny Shaw on drums (Abby Payne, Dispatch). It includes the singles “Collide With Me” and “It’s Not Wrong.”
