Description

The Whiskey Treaty Roadshow is a collaborative band that brings together five Massachusetts singer-songwriters in the vein of Americana, rock and roots-folk music. The band’s members—Tory Hanna, Billy Keane, Chris Merenda, Greg Smith, and Dave Tanklefsky—have totaled 18 albums while working as solo artists, frontmen, sidemen, and founding members of now-defunct bands.

Since their incarnation, the Whiskey Treaty Roadshow has been more recognizable on film than on record: last year, the band was the subject of director Tim Bradley’s documentary of the same name, a praise-worthy project selected to 17 national film festivals, winning awards for “Best Regional Doc,” “Best Short Doc,” and “Best Music Doc.”

The Roadshow formed specifically for that tour, as a temporary songwriters’ circle that would disband upon its completion. They never did, and the last 18 months has largely been spent in support of the documentary, with a host of shows at premieres, screenings and film festivals.

Now they have released their debut album The Heart of the Run a combination of their veteran savvy, but with a newcomers’ kinetic energy, which results in the album’s cathartic feeling, like this is what the Whiskey Treaty Roadshow was put together to do.
