The Shotgun Seat premieres the beautiful new music video from Nashville’s Scott Wesley:
Directed by Chris Ranker and shot by Warren Smith at a lake house in Hendersonville, TN, the video is the second from Wesley’s self-titled EP, which released last Friday, September 11th. The song is an expressive tale of heartbreak, which Wesley frames as solutions for reconciliation. “It’ll be easy,” the song practically implores, with lyrics like “the front door will be unlocked / in case you lot your key, there’s a spare one in the mailbox / if I’m fast asleep, there’s a note on the kitchen table that dinner’s in the refrigerator.” Wesley’s vocals are beautifully presented, and lie over a bed of complementary and subtle instrumentation, haunting steel included.
Scott Wesley’s EP is out next Friday! Stream the release and read the fantastic review at For The Country Record:
The lead single from the project (and its opening track) is ‘Heavy Rotation’, a swampy country-blues song with pop inflections and a hook that’s wonderfully catchy…The second single from the project is ‘My Love’, a darker, more subdued offering featuring aching pedal steel and fluttering mandolin, and a feel that’s more akin to Americana…‘Front Porch Light’, meanwhile, is a sweet little pop country ballad…Scott seems to be something of a romantic, and ‘Fell For It Again’ is a perfect example of that…‘That Girl’, meanwhile, is an upbeat, southern rock-esque foot-tapper about Scott’s soulmate – who he hasn’t met yet.
Gorgeous new song from Scott Wesley premieres on The Bluegrass Situation. Listen to “My Love,” about which Scott Wesley says:
No matter what that person says or does, sometimes the heart wants what it wants and nothing can change that. Producer Paul Kimsal added pedal steel to the tune, which is something I always imagined this song should have. He also added a sample of chain clanking, which suits the theme of the song really well.
The Boot premieres Scott Wesley‘s music video for “Heavy Rotation,” the first single from his forthcoming self-titled EP, coming out on September 11th.
“Heavy Rotation” is a super-catchy, tongue-in-cheek track that explores the journey of following your dreams, being in love and the complications that can arise when coupled together, and its accompanying clip was shot during the live recording session for the song. The track has an organic sound, an old country vibe, honky-tonk piano and a tinge of the blues.
