Album Notes
GREAT WILLOW: Think close harmony singing from James Combs and Erin Hawkins, inspired by the best of the classic Laurel Canyon “Cosmic American Music” tradition. Mariachi horns here. Psychedelic guitar freakout there. Mandolins and resonators. Timbales and accordion. Poetic lyrics, cinematic landscapes.

It’s its own thing but finds inspiration in the music of Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, The Byrds, Leonard Cohen, The Velvet Underground, and the solo work of Gene Clark (check out our cover of Dillard and Clark’s “With Care From Someone”). The songs are also contemporary and highly personal - like a box of sun-bleached photos. Call it Countrified Indie Rock… or Indiefied Country Rock. A Los Angeles/Laurel Canyon sound for 2017.

Our debut album “Find Yourself In Los Angeles,”produced by John Would (Fiona Apple) and Nik Freitas (Maria Taylor) and GW’s James Combs, is a song cycle detailing snapshots of a relationship that gets broken and sets off a move to Los Angeles - endless, dusty, washed out, ugly and beautiful LA - where you go to start all over again. The title track snaps an image of life on arrival:

“Here you find yourself in Los Angeles
How do you make your way here in Los Angeles?
Looking up at dirty palm trees and cactus in the yard
In a neighborhood that you have never heard of
Can you make your name out on the little mailbox?
You’ve staked quite a claim out in Los Angeles”

GW’s James Combs and Erin Hawkins have shared stages with the likes of Jackson Browne and Van Dyke Parks and have had music featured in HBO’s “True Blood” and Showtime’s “Shameless." We also co-host the Secret Bowl Music Series - house concert events featuring Country, Americana and Indie Folk under the trees in LA’s Beachwood Canyon.
