Gone West Releases Debut Album, “Canyons”

 In New Music, Now Mornings

Gone West will release their debut album, Canyons, tomorrow (June 12), just in time for summer.

The four songwriters and performers have worked together and complement each other effortlessly, like a country Fleetwood Mac. “Good vibes chillin’ on cruise control,” they sing on the sunny “R&R.”

The 13-track “Canyons” shows more of the band’s range while staying firmly in the country genre. There’s gorgeous depth to many of the songs, like “Gamblin’ Town,” which has a whining steel guitar and folk influences as the lyrics cleverly equate the music industry to a numbers racket. “Slow Down” is a lazy river of a song with Vince Gill making a guitar cameo, and “Knew You” has a reggae vibe.
