Many of the band&rsquo;s members grew up in the tradition of Bluegrass, and this quality comes across in their playing, as you can tell they all greatly enjoy the music they play as much as their audience does.</p> Fri, 08 Jun 2012 16:21:00 +0000 Mike Jones & Niki Dakota 19842 at http://wyso.org Live on Excursions: The Relentless Mules Live on Excursions: Water Liars http://wyso.org/post/live-excursions-water-liars <p>&nbsp;</p><p>The Folk-Rock duo known as Water Liars stops by WYSO to chat with Chris Shea on this installment of Excursions.</p><p>Water Liars formed after an impromptu basement recording session between band members Andrew Bryant and Justin Kinkel Schuster. With only one microphone, the duo recorded an album that blended folk and rock in a standout way.

One unique aspect of this group is that they are family (Daniel being the uncle to the Miller siblings). Dye and the Millers began playing together at family reunions for fun, but soon realized they had stumbled upon a sound that is heartwarming and soulful (and too good to only showcase at the occasional family reunion).</p> Fri, 28 Jan 2011 15:31:00 +0000 Mike Jones & Niki Dakota 19070 at http://wyso.org Live on Excursions: Daniel Dye and the Miller Road Band
