The authentic country band The Great Western Tears have just released their debut album “Tales from Tallows.” Acoustic duo Dava Waterhouse and Garry Richardson make up the bones of this band, and take influences from their country and folk roots. While they enjoy their acoustic setup, Kurt Hamilton plays pedal steel and Fern Thornton does vocals to add depth to their music.
The Great Western Tears highly admire old time country, blues, folk, and acoustic picking. Dava Waterhouse wrote the songs for their EP while working on farms in Australia. They draw influences from stars such as Old Crow Medicine Show, Steve Earle, First Aid Kit and Willie Nelson. Anyone that likes country and folk music will enjoy their edgy take on country-folk music.
The band is very excited to announce and spread “Tales from Tallows” as their debut LP, available to purchase on almost every digital music provider including iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play. You can also contact the band directly if you would like to purchase a physical copy of the album. The band has been playing shows around the UK and will be playing a show on October 29th in Oxford, supporting The Travelling Band. They have also announced that they will be playing a show on November 17th in Oxford to celebrate the digital album release. There will also be a limited amount of physical CDs of “Tales from Tallows” for sale at the show.
