Triple Tigers Records recording artists GONE WEST featuring Colbie Caillat
announced the June 12 release of their debut album Canyons during their performance this morning on the Today Show. The album is available for pre-save starting today with an instant grat track, "Slow Down
". The 13 songs on Canyons, all written by Gone West, embrace stunning vocal harmonies creating a sound that speaks across genres. 9 of the 13 tracks on the album were produced or co-produced by Gone West. Additional producers and songwriters include Jamie Kenney, Liz Rose, Jimmy Robbins, Eric Arjes, Nathan Chapman, Alysa Vanderheym, Tom Douglas
and Summer Overstreet.
Gone West is comprised of Colbie Caillat, Jason Reeves, Nelly
Joy and Justin Kawika Young who together have more than 5 billion combined streams. The release of their album follows a whirlwind year with the 2019 release of their EP Tides, which impacted immediately and earned 31.1 million streams for the project and reached No. 7 on the Billboard Heatseekers Album chart.
Gone West gave their first live performance onstage at The Grand Ole Opry just over a year ago and opened for country legends Reba McEntire
in 2019, George
Strait earlier this year, and will open for Kenny Chesney
in June. Canyons was recorded in the midst of extensive concert and radio tours along with the release of their Country Airplay top 30 debut single "What Could've Been" mid-last year, which Billboard called "Stunning". The song became the most added first week single by a debut artist last year and continues to grow in airplay and weekly chart moves. The band performed the track on the Today Show today.
After winning the Rising Star Award at the Billboard Music
Awards, Colbie Caillat
went on to earn two Grammy Awards while achieving 11 million album and 25 million singles sales worldwide. Justin Kawika Young is one of the most successful musicians to have emerged in his home state of Hawaii, where he hit No 1 on the state's singles charts 11 times. Texas-born and ACM and CMT nominated Nelly
Joy tasted country music stardom with the JaneDear Girls, for whom she co-wrote 10 of the tracks on the duo's debut album as well as songs covered by Big & Rich, Kelly
Clarkson. Her personal and musical partner multi-platinum and Grammy nominated songwriter Jason Reeves has a long history of writing with Caillat, including her chart-topping "Bubbly," as well penning songs with Demi Lovato, Kenny Rogers
and Louis Tomlinson
(One Direction). Inevitably they all wound up in Nashville, where it was clear at once that they had lots to say as a group, thus forming Gone West.
