Whiskey Darlings

The Whiskey Darlings is a downhome duo from Portland, OR, featuring sweet harmonies, acoustic guitars, and mandolin. When Rob Rainwater and Michele Van Kleef—both popular, local solo performers in their own right— discovered their shared love for singer/songwriter music of the 1960s and 70s, they instantly began crafting original music in the same vein. Rainwater brings his musical background in blues and bluegrass, while Van Kleef offers her stunning soulful vocals and background in rock and folk.
