Bourbon Therapy was born out of Aaron Skiles's realization that the best therapy may just be music...and bourbon doesn't hurt either. Bourbon Therapy is based in Oakland, California. They are an indie rock/alt-country band fronted by the husband and wife duo of Aaron and Rebecca Skiles. Their style of upbeat music combined with downtrodden lyrics is reminiscent of the mid-90's Counting Crows or Soul Asylum combined with the modern The Head and The Heart or Silver Sun Pickups. By mixing big guitars with piano, strings and even an occasional harmonica, their sound ranges from heavy riff-laden songs to expressive ballads, providing a dynamic range of anthemic tunes.
