"If you're going to give your new body of songs a big brave boasting title like 'The Great American Album', then either you have a band ego the size of the Grand Canyon or you're pretty sure that you've come up with something pretty special to offer the unsuspecting hungry music lover. I first came across Wineskin via the internet music site ReverbNation a few months ago and was instantly struck by their musicality and intuitive understanding of rock 'n' roll then and now. They draw on a wide range of influences from Zeppelin to Thin Lizzy, from Little Feat and Neil Young, to the Band, and even the Drive By Truckers. One moment they're flailing you with pounding sharp-soloing rock numbers like 'Two To Go', 'Make It Work' and the mighty 'Stalker Love', the next they confidently come up with Don Henley-styled mid-tempo country rock songs like the album's opening cut 'A Thousand Tomorrows' and the spacey melodic 'Vagabond'. Wineskin hail from Bucks County in Pennsylvania and their sound is rooted in rock's 50 year old worldwide heritage which they've distilled and synthesised into a darned good debut. My favourite track though has to be the deliciously crazy Mellowing-Yellowing Donovan-influenced 'The Mighty Withlacoochee'. The quieter folky feel brings the album to a close with the live lazy sounding Lovin' Spoonful styled 'Sixteen Beers'. The five piece band is led by guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Evan Walton and their musicianship is simply second to none. Have a look at Wineskin's web pages, listen to their live and demo downloads and above all treat yourself to a copy of the truly amazing 11 song set that is 'The Great American Album'"

"A UK review"

Definitely the best good old rock'n'roll set of sounds I've heard in the past 12 months on ReverbNation. All the influences there from Zeppelin to Thin Lizzy back to Jo Jo Gunne, Eagles, Joe Walsh and on to such modern obscure heroes(in Britain, at least) Assembly of Dust.
Keep producing at this brilliant level and someday jump across the pond and do some gigs in the good old U of K please"

The Great American Album - LP
- produced by David Lowery



Based in the foothills of Bucks County, Wineskin is an ever evolving musical machine. The band is a four piece, and often greater than the sum of its parts. Proudly waving the flag of rock-n-roll, they craft songs from the unique fabric it comes from. They deconstruct the American musical landscape and draw on it's rich heritage and genres. From slow country ballads to balls out, riff driven, middle finger rock songs. They can play a ragtime feeling tune and in the next minute sound like a space ship hovering over your house. Their live shows are galvanizing, galactic, grounded and gritty. Live music freaks compare them to Widespread Panic and Govt Mule, but its their own blood and guts you get at each gig they play and a wide range of sounds that fly off the stage. Wineskin can be filed under "struggle rock", WINESKIN has toured and shared the stage with some diverse and great bands. many listed below:
Agents of Good Roots, Cracker, Ween, Strangefolk, The New Deal, Disco Biscuits, Keller Williams, The Radiators, Boris Garcia, MoistBoyz, Bernie Worrell, The Wailers, Charli Hunter, etc...
