WATCH: Chamomile and Whiskey, ‘Sleepless Nights’

Artist: Chamomile and Whiskey
Hometown: Charlottesville, VA
Song: “Sleepless Nights”
Album: Sweet Afton
Label: Country Wide

In Their Words: “I wrote ‘Sleepless Nights’ a few years ago. It was an amalgamation of my sleeping problems, the rowdy touring lifestyle, and a strange encounter I had with a woman who told me her father did taxidermy. I thought the song would be more of a deep cut on the record, but we had so much fun on the recording … between guitar solos, Lauren Hoffman’s vocals, and playing with an old Moog and an Echoplex, it’s become on my favorites.

For the video, we had all this cool black-and-white footage my good friend Johnny St Ours had taken from a show at the Jefferson Theater. Seemed like the grain and vibe fit the song well, so we pieced it together.” — Koda Kerl
