Have you met… The Far West?


You know that real Americana. The one where you can feel that worn out seat of a rugged pick up. That feeling of really dusty boots with worn out heels. And a broken heart.

That kind of Americana is played by The Far West. No more no less. It’s genuine down to that last longneck, sliding over the steelguitar.

The boys, Lee Briante, Robert Black, Erik Kristiansen and Tony Sanborn are hitting the right notes down the road that is great american folk and country music.

They have been described as something like” Waylon’s band jamming with Wilco” which should be something every band like this would put up on their walls and be proud of.

The Dylan-fan will be feeling right at home in songs like ”White Freightliner”, which sounds like its carved out of a 70’s Dylan record, and molded into The Far West.

The debut album is released today, and the band is headed out to SXSW for two shows, 15th and 16th @ B.D. Riley’s Pub and Waterloo Ice house.

April 3rd they will play @ The Grand Ole Echo in LA, with another of the Kentuckyseven favorites, Maxim Ludvig & The Santa Fe Seven. Now there is a show we would like to attend.

    ”Bound To Lose” is a great drivin’ song. I caught them at Adair’s in Dallas and will drive to see them anytime.

    I had the opportunity to play keyboards on a few shows with The Far West in Austin Tx during SXSW 2011, and highly recommend the band. They’re top tier if you love great songwriting and a truly authentic representation of all that’s great about Americana. I look forward to playing shows with The Far West in the future, and hope our schedules allow for that.
