About:

The Westies' Six On The Out is the chilling second chapter from this unflinching group - bold and broad in scope. The masterful and exquisite storytelling coupled with the stark yet cinematic landscapes, create an entire world of what John Ellis from No Depression describes as "Americana music embedded in the rivers of Rust Belt cities, with connections to Ireland, coal streaked miners and how closely related inner city grit and grime is with the softness and serene Appalachian mountaintop"
 
Stories not for the faint of heart, The Westies will take you on a journey of an America in desperate times - one that few people see, yet everyone knows exists. Six On The Out is an unforgettable collection of stories and songs that will leave the listener haunted by its honesty and brutality and in spite of long odds, hope to go on living. The Hollywood Reporter sums it up best...."Despair never sounded so good".

About Heather Lynne Horton

Heather Lynne Horton’s recently completed album, “Postcard Saturdays,” is a collection of deeply intimate and emotional songs that leave no stone unturned in the shadowy world of love and loss. Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, with producer Lex Price, the album is a staggering collection of songs that charts love’s often misguided course with an intensity rarely matched in modern music. Price created an intimate and cinematic landscape which lets the listener travel down the roads Horton has carefully crafted, with imagery that can transport the listener: a Steinbeckesque “The end is near, we’re dying every day,” from the title track “Postcard Saturdays;” “Meanwhile, back at the ranch,” from the rocker “Bandit Country;” and the confessional of closing time classic “Lines” which offers, “You could charm the taste off a sweet tooth.” Emotional power punches are plentiful on this album.

Heather Horton’s heroine, be it a fictional character or not, is gripping, romantic, hopeful, heartbreaking and poetic. Horton lends insights, and a wonderful narrative, to the feelings that have haunted the romantic soul since time immemorial. You can almost hear the ghosts of Keats, Shelly and Lord Byron on this album. “Postcard Saturdays” is a journey through the dark night of the soul. A journey into the light of love. A journey you will never forget.
