About Us:

Whiskey Ricard moved to Nashville, Tennessee in the winter of 2006, relocating from Tallahassee, Florida and their home on the Florida State music scene. It was time to bring thir music to more people and places, and they have been loving every minute of it. "Nashville has opened our eyes to what it means to be in a real band," says Scott Taylor. "You can go to any bar on a Monday night and watch amazing bands playing 80s covers for tips, only to realize halfway through that these bands are composed of the best sidemen in the business. It makes you realize what you are up against." For the past 4 years, Whiskey Richard has been tearing up the Southeast music scene. Chris Dreyer and Scott Taylor met in the spring of 2001 while studying abroad in London. They recorded a demo and had their first taste of performing live at London's famed 12 Bar Club. "Playing in London was great because we had the support of all the kids on our program," Dreyer recalls. "We would book a small club and pack the place. It was a great introduction to performing my music live, but it was humbling to come back to the states and start from scratch." They knew they had something special and began to focus on getting their music heard. Dreyer and Taylor paid their dues as an acoustic act on the music scene at Florida State University, performing at every bar, dive, club, and party they could get their hands on. After over 100 shows for the booze/the door/tips/you name it, reality set in: it was time to build a full band from the ground up. Both players had a lot of experience performing, Dreyer received a degree from FSU in theatre, Taylor received his in music performance... on the trumpet. Taylor notes, "Guitar was something I always did, but never really focused on. I played the trumpet in school and got a scholarship for it, so I just stuck with it." Dreyer began playing guitar in college. "I never had any training," he concedes. "I just started learning bit by bit, and along with it, starting writing songs. As I got better at the playing, I got more adventurous with the writing, but the writing was always a big part of expressing myself. There are songs that we play in this band that I wrote within the first year of learning to play." After finding some players, the boys starting booking bigger shows and began playing out of town at neighboring college and beach towns. "We got a chance to play before we were really that great," says Chris, "but I think that really got us ready to perform quicker... because we had to entertain these crowds." Their big break came when they got their first gigs at Bullwinkle's in Tallahassee. It has named one of the Top 20 College Bars in America by Playboy. Mark Raudabaugh and Andrew Altman, the current rhythm section, came onboard during this time. "We had been playing in some cheesy cover bands," noted Altman, "and felt like this was a group in which we could really contribute and were excited to flesh out Chris's original material." Mark agreed. "The potential was immediately evident, and the quality of the writing blew me away." After playing 200 shows at Bullwinkle's and establishing a touring presence in the Southeast, the group decided to relocate to Nashville. "Nashville seemed like the next logical step," explains Dreyer. "All the label and A & R feedback we have received has come from Nashville. It is a songwriter's town, and it is a great place to tour from, being centrally located. " Taylor added, "We have so much planned for the next year: a few Southeast tours, an East Coast tour up to New York City, the West Coast in January. Moving to Nashville really was the catalyst for us to get busy and become a real band. We have been having a such a great time doing it. We can't complain."
