Ella Reid – Gimme A Cowboy
Americana Highways brings you this premiere of Ella Reid’s album Gimme A Cowboy, scheduled to be released on October 27. Gimme A Cowboy was produced, recorded and mixed by Patrick Conway; produced by Ella Reid and Shane Hawkinson; and mastered by Michael Romanowski at Coast Mastering.
Musicians on the album are Ella Reid on lead vocals and acoustic guitar; Shane Hawkinson on bass and background vocals; Patrick Conway on guitars, keys, percussion, background vocals, tin whistle, banjo, mandolin; Dees Stribling on drums; Warren Hood on fiddle; Brandon Jolley on harmonica; and Chuck Lindo on lead guitar (on “Beautiful Life”).
Plenty of twang and thunder characterize Ella Reid’s songs, as this album opens with soaring encouragement “don’t give up now,” on the opening track. It’s sass and power vocals on the title track (with a little fiddle to round it out), and continuing through strong and heavy twang songs. The album closes with mournfulness rising to powerful anthemic heights on “Up and Away.”
I really dug in on this album on an emotional level that I haven’t been at before and that is very exciting for me. It comes with a rawness yet positive vibe that means a lot to me. I followed where the music took me and that is truly my favorite part of the journey. With the gorgeous production that Patrick Conway was able to bring made all these songs come together so beautifully. Creation is the fun part for me, but the end result is icing on that cake! – Ella Reid
