Rhythm and Booze Records is co-founded and run by singer/lap steel guitarist Felipe Schrieberg (R) and drummer Paul Archibald (L). They've been playing together for over 14 years across many different bands covering a wide variety of genres.
Professional musicians united by a love of fine spirits, they first combined these passions as The Rhythm and Booze Project, a blues duo that fuses gigs and whisky tastings into unforgettable experiences.
Rhythm and Booze Records represents the next step for them in blending the best aged spirits and great music into something truly unique. While the label currently features bands they play in, the roster will soon expand to include other artists they admire.
Felipe and Paul have an academic and professional background to match. In addition to co-writing articles together for Whisky Magazine, Felipe wrote his Masters degree thesis on sustainable distillation on Islay conducting field interviews after Islay's Feis Ile whisky festival, while Paul has completed a PhD in the history of jazz drumming and the drum kit in New Orleans.
Felipe is also a drinks writer for top industry publications and is a senior contributor for Forbes.com. He has written two books about drinks in London, won the 2022 Icons of Whisky Communicator of the Year award amongst other honours, and is a Keeper of the Quaich.
