Whiskey Foxtrot is a five-piece Americana/Alt-Country/Roots Rock band from Winston-Salem, NC founded by Seth Williams and Sam Foster, in 2017. After they decided to team up together in 2017, they quickly became a regional favorite. They play hundreds of shows per year across North Carolina and Virginia while continuing to grow a following in the Southeastern US, including Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina. Whiskey Foxtrot plays with a common goal: to write, record, and perform their own material for audiences across the country, while also covering the songs that have influenced them through the years. Their original music is a combination of country, blues, and rock 'n roll; stemming from influences such as The Allman Brothers Band to Tom Petty, and beyond.
With plans to release their debut full-length LP in 2019, the band has released four studio singles: “The Broken End” and “Turn Off The Headlights” produced/engineered by Corey Hunt (Uwharrie Mountain Sound,) along with “San Isidro” and “Big Top Town” produced/engineered by Benjy Johnson (Earthtones Recording Studio.)
Under the Whiskey Foxtrot moniker, as well under the solo acts of Sam Foster/Seth Williams prior to officially founding the band, they have shared the stage with several national/regional touring acts including: Ward Davis, The Way Down Wanderers, Sunny Sweeney, Caleb Caudle, Justin Wells, American Aquarium, Corey Hunt Band, Jonathan Byrd & the Pickup Cowboy, Corin Raymond, Damon Fowler, The Curt Towne Band, Preacher Stone, and Chris Anderson & Rattlebone.
They have also been booked at multiple festivals including:
Southern Rock & BBQ Festival (Wimauma, FL)
Jimmy-June Music & Arts Festival (Asheboro, NC)
Hippie Fest (Lake City, SC/Salisbury, NC/Myrtle Beach, SC)
The Lansing Blues Festival (Lansing, NC)
The Harvest Festival (Madison, NC)
Dan River Boat Race/Food Truck Festival (Madison, NC)
What The Hay Festival (Mayodan, NC)
As a solo artist Seth Williams also participated in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN in 2016 and 2017, as well as the 30th and 31st Carolina Blues Festivals in 2016/2017
"If Whiskey Foxtrot sound distinctly Southern, with the drawl and twang of Williams' and Foster's singing, there's also a fair amount of classic-rock riffage to bring to mind artists like Tom Petty and Stone Temple Pilots." - John Adamian, YES! Weekly.
"...walking a line many prominent bands such as Blackberry Smoke and Whiskey Myers toe with their music. Capable of sets that both excite a crowd and involve some story-telling, listening room allure, the diversity Whiskey Foxtrot displays is quite impressive..." - Red Dirt NC.
“The mix of alt-country, heartland rock guitars, and lap steel really makes this band tick. In a lot of ways, Whiskey Foxtrot reminds me of American Aquarium meets Tom Petty, with some Southern Rock mixed in for good measure.” – Logan DeBerry, Oak City Drifters
"Whiskey Foxtrot draws upon an eclectic mix of influences...they are prepared to carry on and breathe new life into a tradition that has long been a part of our region." - Mason Winfree, YES! Weekly.
“…a conglomerate of blues and classic country – all with just the right amount of rock and roll.” – Red Dirt NC.
