William Tyler
An excerpt from the M.C. Taylor-penned bio:

William and I bonded early in our relationship over Barry Hannah, a hellraising writer from Mississippi who practically reinvented the way that words could be assembled on a page. Like Hannah, William Tyler knows the Southas a crucible of American histories and cultures, an entity capable of expansive beauty and incomprehensible violence, often in the same beatas his native place, the place that holds him and that he runs from. In the music of William Tyler, the South is not apart from America; the South is America condensed. And like Hannahand this part is importantWilliam moved to California, where Goes West was written. We dont know how long William will stayHannah lasted just a couple of years, writing in the employ of director Robert Altmanbut the change of scenery seems to suit him.

Goes West marks a sort of narrowing of focus for Williams music; it sounds as though he found a way to point himself directly towards the rich and bittersweet emotional center of his music without being distracted by side trips. Perhaps this is down to the fact that William only plays acoustic guitar on the album, a clear and conscious decision considering that he is one of Nashvilles great electric guitarists. The band that performs Goes West alongside Williamincluding guitarists Meg Duffy and Bill Frisell, bassist and producer Brad Cook, keyboardist James Wallace, drummer Griffin Goldsmith, and engineer Tucker Martineis the best and most sympathetic group of players that William could have assembled to play these songs.
