Bourbon Express takes its cues from traditional country artists such as Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard and Loretta Lynn, preferring "three chords and the truth," close-knit harmonies and old-fashioned twang to the modern country sound. Band members include singer-songwriter Katie Curley, vocalist/percussionist Sarah Kinsey, and guitarist Brendan Curley. Their mission is to make toes tap and taps flow.
New York Music Daily describes Bourbon Express as “a first-class honky tonk band” and named "Which Wine Goes with Your Heartache" one of "The Top 100 Songs of 2015." Their self-released debut album One Big Losin' Streak was ranked in the top 10 on Roots Music Report's True Country Album Chart six weeks in a row. The Daily Country calls it "a gem; toe tapping and twangy with a sound that is decidedly old school." George Graham of WVIA's Homegrown Music deemed Bourbon Express "a great retro old-school country style band with appealing original tunes."
