Country Westerns is a three-piece rock band from Nashville that
sounds nothing like its name. Drummer Brian Kotzur (Trash
Humpers, Silver Jews) and singer-songwriter-guitarist Joseph Plunket
(The Weight, Gentleman Jesse) began working on songs together in
2016, after bonding over the shared desire to be in a band in a town
full of solo artists and guns-for-hire. Following a couple of years writing
and playing shows with varying lineups, Sabrina Rush (State
Champion) joined the band as bassist. The now complete Country
Westerns recorded their debut album in New York and Nashville,
encouraged by friend and producer Matt Sweeney. Plunkets raspy
bravado and subtle twang, his insistent 12-string guitar riffs, Kotzurs
dynamic and metronomic drumming, and Rushs harmonic bass
playing create hyper catchy rock songs, with lyrics that bend towards
poetry and punk rock sneer in equal measure. Their self-titled debut is
slated for release in 2020 on Fat Possum Record.
+ The Split Coils
The Split Coils are the brain child of songwriter/ multi instrumentalist J.Russell (Hot Rod Circuit, Diamond J and the Rough). Joined by his wife Katelyn Russell on percussion and harmony, Joseph Ballaro on Bass guitar and Jon Scerbo on Drums.
The songs (its all about the songs) are a straight forward mix of Rock and Roll, Soul and Country.
Keep an eye out for songs on band camp.
