Mustangs of the West – “Sea of Heartbreak”

Americana Highways is hosting this video premiere of all-woman band Mustangs of the West’s version song “Sea of Heartbreak,” the title track from their recently released album.  “Sea of Heartbreak” was written by Paul Hampton and Hal David and famously recorded by Don Gibson in 1961. The album was produced by Kirk Pasich and Colin Devlin; engineered and mixed by Zackary Darling; and mastered by Emily Lazar of Chief Mastering Engineer at The Lodge NYC. 

“Sea of Heartbreak” is Suzanna Spring on lead vocals and acoustic guitar; Sherry Rayn Barnett on dobro; Aubrey Richmond on fiddle, mandolin, and background vocals; Holly Montgomery on bass and background vocals; and Suzanne Morissette Cruz on drums and cajon.

The video was directed and edited by Mike Bruce (Mike Bruce Films).  The actor was J.D. Rudometkin.  Jenny Karl did hair & makeup with assistants Marina Proctor and Sarah Dougherty. Spine tingling a cappella vocals followed by closely knit flinty harmonies give this song a fresh life.  The video creates a poignant feeling of nostalgia, longing. and regret, with images of a couple in love that’ll pull on your heartstrings, interspersed with the band pulling your heartstrings live onstage.  

The new video “Sea of Heartbreak” from Americana artists Mustangs Of The West is beautiful, cinematic storytelling of the longing and regret of love lost. 

From the stark acapella beginning, this is a dramatic new take on a classic country song from 1961. Director Mike Bruce brings a retro feel to the club scenes, as fiddle, dobro and mandolin weave through the gorgeous signature harmonies of this five-piece all female band. – Suzanna Spring
