— Produced by Eve Nelson and Inda Eaton
“Go West,” the new release from globe-trotting singer-songwriter Inda Eaton, is a no-holds-barred showcase for Inda’s cowgirl-tough and sweet-as-soul vocals and acoustic guitar.
Exquisitely produced by Inda and Eve Nelson, an acclaimed producer, arranger, and composer, who is featured on a Steinway grand piano and in killer harmonies that conjure the folk-rock Laurel Canyon sound stirred with a splash of Peter Gabriel, Stevie Nicks, and the Indigo Girls. The album was recorded by Grammy® Award winner, Cynthia Daniels, in her state-of-the-art studio in East Hampton, N.Y.
Jeffrey Smith on drums and percussion, Curt Mychael on bass and vocals, and B.Rehm-Gerdes on electric guitar, all left nothing on the table to create songs full of live emotion and spontaneous energy, taking listeners on a welcome trip through a comfortably familiar yet excitingly unique sonic landscape.
“Go West” captures the optimism of the American dream. Lyrically, the album explores the urge for adventure contrasted by the feeling of comfort, safety and sweetness of home. The songs express the feelings of unrequited yearning and belief that the best is yet to come as we travel through a life full of twists and turns and unintended results.
The 11 songs on the album were recorded live in three days at Cynthia Daniels’ studio, capturing the raw interactive energy. The tracks were laid down on the record that way, with only an acoustic guitar overdub. The vocals and mix happened later at Eve Nelson’s studio in L.A., during a month of collaboration and camaraderie among good friends over coffee, barbecues, and beverages.
In songs like “Long Way Home,” “Rest Your Head,” and “Love is a Road,” Inda Eaton travels through lives shaped by homeplace roots and tempered by journeys far from home, ﬂavored with longing and nostalgia.
