Saddle Up! The Territories West album – Out Now

With new, 12-track album, THE TERRITORIES WEST, the listener is invited on a journey through the wide, evocative landscapes of the Midwest. The guitar is the primary instrument, and the mood switches from wistful melancholy to pure joy and back again. The haunting ‘Heartlands’ tells a story of a lover left behind. A rhythmic thrum in ‘Nowhere Left to Run’ recalls the gallop of horses across the desert, and the defiant amble of ‘By His Father’s Grave’ becomes the stroll of an outlaw down a main street, telling a tale of revenge. Other soundscapes evoke arid plains and sweeping ranges where wolves roam, where lonely cowboys ride under a stream of bright stars, where spells are cast over crackling campfires, and where nothing is quite as it seems.

In ‘Heartlands’, ‘By His Father’s Grave’ and ‘Bang Bang’ (a cover of the original by Sonny Bono and Cher), vocalists Nicole Obren and Kayla McGee weave stories through the album to elevate and enhance the western theme.

submerged man | new rock music releases

Sneaking back into rock/metal, these three tracks are a collaboration with my drummer brother, Hector, who also created the cool artwork for ‘colussus/he who lives behind the moon’.

  • submerged man (out today)
  • we were not meant to know of it
  • colossus (from the ‘he who lives behind the moon’ release)

We created ‘Submerged Man’* a couple of years ago with Julian (Friday Night Special) and played it at Mangonui Festival and Far North Summer Sounds, back in the good old days when festivals were a thing. It feels good to have it finally recorded.
