Music Premiere: Drew Cooper – “New Heart”

Last year Tucson, Arizona’s Drew Cooper made his debut at our River Jam Sunday extravaganza. Honest songwriting and a grizzled voice carved from thousands of miles of gigging, we love Cooper’s take on Americana. His latest project, ambitious in scope, is a double album full of all new material. To help see his vision through, Drew enlisted the help of Studio 606 big gun, John Lousteau (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Motorhead, etc.) to produce the record. Part one, This Life, is set to release on April 15th, and today you’ll be getting a sneak peek at one of the

Bobby Duncan – Maybe This Time

A lot has changed in the world since Bobby Duncan put out his last studio record, Forever From Here, in 2012. That year Apple unveiled the iPhone 5, chardonnay moms were creeping on the high school dudes from Twilight, and Psy showed out of nowhere, garnered a billion YouTube views, and made everybody insane with “Gangnam Style.” Yeah, it’s been that long.

They also began

Music Premiere: Waves – “Take It Or Leave It”

Year five of Mile 0 Fest is kicking off, and we’ve got some new music you can catch live while hanging in Hemingway’s paradise of Key West. Back in year one, Cody and Shannon Canada’s boys, Dierks and Willy had just started to get their feet wet on the music stage. I saw Dierks play “Turn the Page” with his dad in a small theater on day one of the festival. He was still learning his cowboy chords, still trying to hit the changes. His younger brother, Willy, made an appearance behind the drum kit in the amphitheater later that

Music Premiere: Cody Canada and The Departed – “If You Want It That Much”

It’s still early, but 2022 has already landed some whoppers on the music news front. We’ve got a Turnpike reunion tour that’s generating two kinds of frenzy…those that can get tickets and those that can’t. The Robert Earl Keen farewell tour that we just learned about will undoubtedly do the same. Whether or not you’re one of the lucky to snag a ticket to one or both shows, you’re going to be part of the fun. We at Galleywinter remain hopeful that this two-year time warp is finally untangling itself and the party will pick back up like it’s 2019.
