The Whiskey Priest
Singer/Songwriter in the Cellar Bar!
“The Whiskey Priest is songwriter and musician Seth Woods. Based out of Albuquerque since 2011, Seth came to the Land of Enchantment by way of Austin, TX where he played in multiple acts for just shy of a decade, including his own band, Sad Accordions. Around the time they finished their first record, A Bad Year For The Sharons, the band’s writing process began to move towards a more collaborative effort, with less of an emphasis on pre-existing songs. While this was a much needed and welcomed change for the band, it left Seth with a suitcase full of homeless songs. And as these things will often go: heartache plus unused songs and identification with a specific character from classic twentieth century literature (one tormented by the struggle between the human and the divine, no less!) equals The Whiskey Priest.
Alongside Seth’s work as The Whiskey Priest and in Sad Accordions, he also played regularly in Zookeeper (fronted by Mineral’s Chris Simpson), Alex Dupree’s Trapdoor Band, and was an early collaborator in Zykos lead singer’s solo project Booher, as well as being a longstanding member of the legendary Austin band SWISS.”
