Weatherside Whiskey Band / Bio

Weatherside Whiskey Band’s four piece alt-country and bluegrass ensemble has been resonating with Pacific Northwest crowds, and has stormed the scene with its seven-track EP, “Pickin’ the Pines”. This “whiskey-swilling roadhouse outfit” is renowned for its down home sound with three-part vocal harmonies, acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, and upright bass.

This Seattle based group was formed in October 2011 and draws its country roots from Whidbey Island, Washington and Cody, Wyoming. The band has built a strong following with energetic stage presence, catchy melodies, and boot stomping rhythms. Their influences stem from traditional bluegrass (The Stanley Brothers, Doc Watson), country (Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash), and folk rock (Old Crow Medicine Show, Mumford & Sons).

Whether the band is on stage, busking on a sidewalk, or jamming on a scrap wood stage under the stars, these four friends “bring buoyant enthusiasm to their brand of jangly, road-worn tunes” - Seattle Weekly.

Band Members

Tanner McInerney - Vocals, Rhythm Guitar & Mandolin
Whidbey Island native, Tanner McInerney has been playing and singing bluegrass and country music with his father from an early age. A quick-learner and a natural on stage, Tanner’s flat-picking is inspired by friend and luthier Wayne Henderson of Rugby, VI. All that, and he’ll build you a timber-frame house worthy of the Big Bad Wolf himself.

Jakob Singer - Vocals, Lead Guitar & Harmonica
With a last name like Singer, Jakob had no choice but to become the impressive musician he is today. Jakob has a bachelors in guitar performance from the University of Wyoming and an Associates in recording arts from Full Sail University. All the way from Cody, WY, he has over ten years of stage experience, and currently teaches at music schools in Seattle. His list of original tunes has perfected WWB’s growing repertoire, and his high and lonesome tenor delights audiences at every show.

Amy Meyer - Vocals
Originally from Issaquah, WA, Amy Meyer grew up singing to accompany her mother’s piano playing. Her love of bluegrass and folk jams grew around the campfire when she moved to Whidbey Island in 2010. You can see Amy’s other love – painting – on her website: weathersidestudio.com.

Jacob Yackshaw - Double Bass
Trained at Berklee College of Music, Jacob Yackshaw brings years of musical study and experience to WWB. It’s easy to recognize his talent while he runs the bass lines on his Czechoslovakian double bass. Jacob grew up in Shoreline, WA, and has had a successful music career in various other bands in Seattle and Boston.
