The WhiskeyBelles
“Country Christmas” – “Whatever kind of Christmas is there, but a country one” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Americana, Vintage Country
Band Members: Chrissy Dzioba (Guitar/ vocals), Kimmy Unger (Fiddle/ vocals), Sara Moilanen (Bass/ vocals)
Home Town: Milwaukee, WI
Short description: Roots Country born of Gin Hall and Juke Joints!

Hank Williams passion, Carter family harmonies, with a little Hee Haw mixed in for good measure. The WhiskeyBelles are an all-female traditional country and Americana trio based out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 

The Belles are widely known for captivating shows featuring their own take on classic and obscure vintage-country, Americana, folk-revival and roots-country tunes, with their witty originals sprinkled in. They’ve been compared with the Pistol Annies, Dixie Chicks and The Trio (Dolly Parton, Emmy Lou Harris & Linda Ronstadt).The WhiskeyBelles have personalities as big as the Texan skyline - they have a great time on stage, and love to share the fun with their audience.
The 'Belles started their musical shenanigans in May of 2011 and by July of the following year they released their independent debut album, WHISKEY WOMAN, which was named one of the 10 best local albums of 2012 by Milwaukee Magazine.

They released their second album on November 30th, 2013. This release is a raucous Christmas album aptly titled, NOTHIN’ SAYS CHRISTMAS LIKE WHISKEY.
Both of their studio albums have received wide-spread radio play across the U.S. and as far away as France and The Netherlands. The title track from their debut album, Whiskey Woman, recently climbed to #8 on the monthly Freeform American Roots Chart (FAR). The chart is assembled of reports from 130 radio stations world wide. FAR is compiled by John Conquest for 3rd Coast Music Magazine, the essential eNewspaper for American Roots music.
Then in June, 2015 they released their third CD on June 12th, a live album titled Tales from the Bootleggers' Ball (UK iTunes). A fun-filled, larger than life album that gives the listener a taste of what it's like to hear the WhiskeyBelles in their element, performing live.
Besides starting a new studio album, the WhiskeyBelles have kept a busy schedule performing over 65+ shows a year.
They have also won the WAMI award for Americana/Bluegrass Artist of the Year as well as the coveted People's Choice Award and have opened for country stars such as Montgomery Gentry, The Lost Trailers, The Kentucky Headhunters and Cadillac Three.
