Six Shooter Country
by Paul Lewis
3M ago
Willie Lock is a singer-songwriter from New York. We spoke with him a few months ago when his single When We Were 17 came out. Today (November 30) marks the release of his debut album, West Side Stories, a collection of songs inspired by true stories on his journey from his roots in Indiana to New York. It’s New York country rock with a strong Nashville influence. Willie’s music is country at its heart, but with influences from his extraordinarily varied musical journey. It takes him through performing for every living President of the United States as a member of the National Cathedral choir ..read more

Single review: A Brave move from The Jackson Line
Six Shooter Country
by Alison Dewar
3M ago
If you like a little heartbreak in your country songs, then check out Brave, the latest single out tomorrow (November 10) from The Jackson Line. It’s a tearjerker of a song that explores the final moments of a relationship, brought to life by the raw vocals of the track’s lead singer Jamie Cook and some pretty powerful guitar playing. I recently heard this sung live and it’s guaranteed to send a shiver down the spine. That’s not to say it’s dark (it isn’t) but with lines like How do we tell the kids and who gets the house?, it has an honesty and a depth of feeling that more than tugs at the h ..read more

Newly-moved to London and enjoying life in both the capital and the countryside (and Hull – of which more later), the ..read more

EP Review: Drake White steps back in time onto The Bridge
Six Shooter Country
by Alison Dewar
5M ago
Album art: Zack Knudsen Alison Dewar writes: Drake White describes his latest EP The Bridge (out today October 6) as ‘marking an era of self-re-discovery and purpose’. It’s an interesting comment, perhaps the more so given that 2023 has seen him become a father for the first time and just reach his milestone 40th birthday. Known to wear his heart on his sleeve, White says: “The Webster dictionary defines a bridge as a structure carrying a pathway or roadway over a depression or obstacle. This is the bridge taking me to back to why I started making music in the first place.” And in many ways T ..read more

Single Review – Are Lady A Going To ‘Love You Back’ With Their New Release? 
Six Shooter Country
by Georgie Thorogood
5M ago
Georgie Thorogood gives her thoughts on the new song from the multi-award winning hit combo LADY A. As a long term Lady A fan, it’s always exciting when the trio releases new music, hoping that they will be able to capture yet again the magic that enchanted so many people with their big early hits. Let’s see if the excitement was worthwhile with their newest offering, Love You Back. One of the key features of a good Lady A song, in my opinion, is those unique and instantly recognisable opening bars. From Need You Now and I Run To You right through to the more recent What If I Never Get Over Y ..read more
