Book of Matches

The Whiskey Farm

This is campfire rock - homegrown, lyric-driven Americana.

The Whiskey Farm is an Americana and folk rock band from Madison, Wisconsin. Formed in 2010,the band released their first record, “Middle of America,” in 2011 and in 2012 won the Madison Area Music Award (MAMA) for Best Americana/Folk song for the lead track, “If I Were You.” The Onion A.V. Club described The Whiskey Farm as “straddling the line between bluegrass and folk, blending technical wows with accessible songwriting for very pop-minded Americana.” The Americana Gazette wrote that they have “great tunes, killer hooks, and fantastic harmonies,” and The Isthmus called them “a big boost for the little music scene thriving here in the middle of America.” The band features multi-instrumentalists and layered harmonies in lyric-driven songs. In 2013, The Whiskey Farm released their second full-length album, From the Still, and won the MAMA for Best Ensemble Vocals. They have shared the stage with Americana favorites such as Phox, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Pert Near Sandstone, and Shooter Jennings. Their third studio album, Book of Matches, was released in September, 2015.

The Day the Tractors Came to Town

The Whiskey Farm

Up here in Wisconsin, we have a slight governor problem. From across the state, people have come to Madison to stand up for their rights. Some of the most moving protests involved firemen marching with bagpipes and farmers riding their tractors to the capital to support the cause. The Day the Tractors Came to Town commemorates those events. This song was written for our young children who joined us at the rallies in the hope that they will remember these momentous days. It was also written in solidarity with all those who are working tirelessly for the rights of the middle class.
