Whiskey Kiss is all grown up. What started as a sweet, rockabilly-influenced act has morphed into a straight-up roots rock band with vintage flair and edgy kicks. The result is a classic backbone driven in a modern direction: Retro.Revamped.
Whiskey Kiss has been stirring things up since 2012, and have nicely settled into a groove with a revamped lineup. Niki White, lead vocals, has come into her own as a vocalist and songwriter. Nick White’s move to guitar from bass drives their new sound: his gritty guitar tone and bluesy melodies are just solid roots rock. Tommy Collins performs death-defying stunts himself while playing the upright and occasionally grabbing the lead vocal mic. Bruce Legge, has become a multi-instrumentalist adding saxophone to his trumpet and trombone skills, and Michael Robinson superbly rounds out the rhythm section on drums,
Whiskey Kiss’ stage show has been praised as “dynamic and acrobatic- some would say insane” (Buster Fayte’s Rockabilly Romp). Ed Masley of AZ Central writes, “with the showmanship they brought to that performance, they should have no trouble conquering the Continent…And it goes beyond the retro-friendly sex appeal and jaw-dropping vocal abilities of singer Niki White, although that clearly helps. Guitarist Nick White is a brilliant roots guitarist with great tone and all the right moves, including soloing while perched on top of Tommy Collins’ upright bass”.
Whiskey Kiss has played Viva Las Vegas, the biggest rockabilly festival in the world, as well as notable European festivals like The Firebirds Festival and Vlissingen Vintage. They’ve also performed with the Rockabilly Queen, Wanda Jacksons, as her backing band, and they’ve shared the stage with many artists such as The Blasters, Deke Dickerson, The Delta Bombers, and many more. As Mitchell Hillman of The Phoenix New Times said, ““They’ve got the sound, the look, and the record ready to launch them well into next year and bring them to a much larger audience than they have reached before. Keep your eyes on Whiskey Kiss; their aim is high and so is their trajectory.”
