Founded by Lacey Crowe and Jason Clark, the sound of Bourbon House's riff-based groove rock has been described as "modern rock with a hard 70's blues-rock edge." As vocalist Lacey Crowe likes to describe their songs, "Straight-up, timeless rock and roll".
Their 2019 single "Devil on My Heels" won the praise of Classic Rock Magazine: "Expect delicious spadefuls of Heart, Led Zeppelin and Janis Joplin with this gnarly blues rock number from Wisconsin rockers Bourbon House. Spearheaded by smoky-yet-strident siren Lacey Crowe, it's the kind of music that doesn't know whether to flirt with you or kick you in the teeth – and we mean that in a good way." Bourbon House won a feature on the magazine's covermount compilation CD, and also won Track of the Week. With the aid of influential rock radio DJ's around the world, including a shoutout endorsement from Eddie Trunk, the single quickly climbed the underground rock ranks, reaching #1 on the independent charts in Australia and #2 in the U.K. Their following release, "Too High to Care," also received the praise of Classic Rock Magazine with a track of the week nomination, has been featured in multiple publications and radio stations, and landed them a slot on the Blind Anxiety Entertainment roster.
Following the release of "6000 miles" and the subsequent official music video, Bourbon House has garnered almost 100,000 YouTube views to date, a number that is still climbing and gaining them valuable fans and subscribers.
Fresh off of their spring of 2021 southern USA tour, Bourbon House released their next single "Dead in the Water" on April 23, 2021, followed by an official music video release in late May and a full album release in July.

“Congratulations Bourbon House! And hats off to Stevie D and Mini Simmons for quality second and third place tunes. Now, get stuck into this new lot then vote for your favourite at the foot of this page. But first it's over to last week's champions...”
“Expect delicious spadefuls of Heart, Led Zeppelin and Janis Joplin with this gnarly blues rock number from Wisconsin rockers Bourbon House. Spearheaded by smoky-yet-strident siren Lacey Crowe, it's the kind of music that doesn't know whether to flirt with you or kick you in the teeth – and we mean that in a good way.”
“You got the blues today? Well, we hope so because we’re premiering the new single “Devil On My Heels” from blues, roots rock band Bourbon House. The song is driven by the gritty crooning of the four-piece’s charismatic frontwoman Lacey Crowe, along with the slide guitar talents of Jason Clark and hard-hitting drumming of the John Bonham-like Ryan Sargent.”
"They pull that off thanks to the awesome guitar work of Jason Clark, the solid drum work of Ryan Sargent and the stellar vocal by Lacey Crowe."
“Mainly heavy in the way it should be, Yet We Run is an interesting acoustic [core guitar] with deeper vocal from LC and her overdub that showcases the band stepping outside the generic too, and I particularly like this one. Opener Burn them Bones makes no bones about featuring the singing above its riffs, and that is where the album consistently sips its bourbon muse.”
“Bourbon House derives major influence from retro sounds, especially 70s hard rock and groove. They gave us a behind-the-scenes look into how they come up with their musical gems...”
“Bourbon House brings back Rock ‘N Roll to the nitty gritty sound that we came to love: the distortion, the power chords, the heavy riffs, the angst in the vocals, the list can go on.”
