2016 Winter Tour
With the new year comes a host of opportunities to see The Liquorsmiths play live! First, Drew Thams will be doing a quick solo tour across the southern U.S., kicking off in Atlanta (hometown of their label, Inhesion Records, and producer, Jeremy Grelle) on January 9th. The whole band will then convene in the desert to record songs for their next album (to be released in 2016), and then return to their home confines of southern California for a pair of shows. Come on out and join in the revelry!
The Liquorsmiths at Soda Bar with Gill Landry

Pre-Order Available For “This Book Belongs To”
The album is being released to all digital retailers, as well as on CD and (we’re especially excited about this one) a very limited pressing of 180g audiophile-quality vinyl. Additionally, we’ve made available a special t-shirt, handcrafted by Drew Thams himself, that will only be available as part of a pre-order bundle. If you place your pre-order through the website, you will immediately receive 3 additional downloads of tracks that won’t be available anywhere else until the release. In addition, all pre-orders will include a free digital copy of the bonus EP, “Live Acoustic at Inhesion Studios”. Place your order today to get in on the action.
The early media reviews have been stellar, the excitement has been building, and we can’t wait to be able to put this record in your hands. This ride is still just getting started, but moving awfully fast and we’re stoked to have you along on the journey.

Artists To Watch at Adams Avenue Unplugged
“Thirsty for some booze-soaked Americana with a melodic pop twist? This trio featuring guitarist/vocalist Drew Thams, multi-instrumentalist Ryan Fisher and drummer Clayton Payne has a tall, cool drink for you. The Liquorsmiths have been a near-constant presence on San Diego stages over the last year or so, with a recent headlining show at House of Blues and an ongoing monthly residence at Normal Heights’ Sycamore Den under their belts. If you’re not familiar with the band already, you will be. Check ’em out.”
It’s Time to Welcome The Liquorsmiths
“The seats that were empty at 9pm are gone now, and the band kicks off with “Blank Page,” a good intro to the Liquorsmith sound: tom-toms thump on the right, with a snare from the left, creating an undercurrent that the guitar’s power strums and Thams’ urgent vocal ride over the top of. It is a unique and captivating combination of sounds – there aren’t any other bands that sound like this. The band’s dynamics center on various drum rhythms, the lightness or urgency of the guitar strumming, and Thams’ soulful vocals.”
