Discography

Formerly known as Whiskey Tango (until too many bands surfaced with the same name), the Hideaways called their first album The Whiskey Tango Sessions. Separately these guys have worked with such impressive artists as Lucinda Williams, Rosi Flores, the Beat Farmers, Dusty Wakeman, Tony Sheridan, Peter Gordon, the Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash, and members of both the Johnny Cash Band and the Dwight Yoakam Band. Collectively, these guys are an incredibly tight four-piece band with three very talented, distinct singer songwriters whose songs combine to create a rich, complementary album that has a remarkable level of consistency.

Recorded at "The Ranch" in El Cajon, CA, The Whiskey Tango Sessions is flavored with gorgeous pedal steel work and honest, heartfelt lyrics soaked in equal parts whiskey and integrity that weave tales of small towns, drinking, cheating, loving, and leaving. The Hideaways' style ranges from infectious pop ("Stranger's Heart") and raucous rockabilly ("Since You Said Goodbye") to bluesy ("If I Could Find a Way"). The band also brings Red Dirt flavor with a song about ranchers, señoritas, and dogs riding shotgun in an El Camino ("El Centro County Line"). Besides rockin' and twangin', it's clear the Hideaways also know the power of catchy hooks and warm harmonies.

The Hideaways have been making waves around Southern California for awhile, garnering recognition in the press and picking up nominations for multiple San Diego music awards, highlighted by winning "Best Country" in 2005 & nominated for "Best Americana Album" in 2006.
