Debut EP, "From the Lakehouse"
I was with you guys at Dockers Restaurant when you were performing there at the annual pig roast, and despite being on a 2 by 2 stage, you guys were really phenomenal!
- Bill Powers, My Country 96.1FM DJ (taken from our on-air interview)
The singer has a great powerful voice and the instruments blended like that sound great. The drums are nice and clear, and the guitar comes in at the perfect moments. Great Job!!!" 5 Stars - Delicious22222

--iTunes Reviews of From The Lakehouse
" My wife excitedly brought your music to me, and she doesn't get excited over anything, and I thought,"wow, these guys are really good. I just knew you guys had to be the first guests on Unsigned"
"Let me tell you, you've got some voice, you are a country girl...I heard the inflections, the up and downs, and I thought, "Wow this girl's got it down, she's got the country twang"- Eric Koppelman, radio host
--Interview for WLINY's Unsigned
Chantilly Whiskey captured the crowd with a set of songs, moving guests to sing with passion and line dance in the earlier part of the evening, making people want more."
