Gone West

What an exceptional mixture of talent!

When I first heard them on the Storme Warren radio show, I was driving  in the car. I literally had to pull over and stop to listen to every word of their new single, “Confetti”, oh my, how catchy is this melody!!  Gone West released a 4 song EP, that you will play over and over and over.. Their 4 part vocal harmony is incredible! They sound effortless, and their voices are warm and friendly. The members of the group are Colbie Caillat, Jason Reeves, Nelly Joy, Justin Young. They have been musicians in the Nashville area for years, seasoned professionals, and have joined forces for this newly formed music venture.

“This Time” is their slower ballad song, The lyrics in it, “Yesterday is Superman’s kryptonite”., and “There might not be a next time”, are so true about many relationships,  we can all relate to this, right? And the Harmonies on it, makes the song just perfect, you feel like they know what we have all been through.

“Gone West” I love as well.. The melody is danceable, you just feel like running through a field and never stop!! It’s about going west of Tennessee to California. (but of course going back to where home is now Tennessee!)  It is all about getting reconnected,and refocused, with youth, experiences, and feelings. (love the guitar solos on this one, acoustic of course!) So refreshing!! “Home is Where the Heartbreak is” about a breakup and how they feel about it. “Love found somewhere else to live” what do you do? That’s the message they are singing about.

My Feelings are all warm and fuzzy from listening to this EP over and over and over. Its easy listening, just plain fun, and again, those harmonies!! Wow!!!!

Sign up for their newsetter on their website: . https://www.gonewestmusic.com/. YOU will want to get the latest updates from them and a tour schedule!! I can’t wait to see them onstage and have the best time. BUT… while you are waiting download, stream, their ep, from any and all of the music sites. I got mine from itunes!! Have fun with this one, its amazing!!!

Hi, Im Robin. I have been a music groupie/follower, since the '70s (showing my age). Gr0wing up in Oyster Bay, Long Island, N.Y. there was not a lot of Country music playing on the airways. I always found a way to seek out the country side of my youth, Marshall Tucker Band, Poco, Charlie Daniels, Johnny Cash, and my absolute all time favorite, Dwight Yoakam. The list goes on. (of course my disco friends, never knew this,) Moving to Florida in the early 1980's was awesome! There was more than one Country radio station on FM!! I discovered the greats like Tanya Tucker, Sammy Kershaw, Marty Stuart, Travis Tritt, Randy Travis. Line dancing every weekend, I was in heaven!! There is so much great talent out there now, its exciting and they are extremely innovative with their craft. I look forward to each time a new song and album are released. My son is a bass player and has moved to Nashville to pursue his dream of being a touring musician, and he is on the road right now. I guess you can say it runs in the family. :) So now I get the chance to visit the home of country music, Nashville!!! I love reaching out to the up and comers here in FLorida, there is so much amazing talent. This is not just a job, but a passion!!! Robin
