Debut DOWNLOAD SINGLE from East Coast Outfit
Playing on the debut single from EAST COAST OUTFIT are Ian Smith on guitars, keyboards and vocals, Gary Smith on bass, percussion and backing vocals.
Americana country rock folk ballad, waltzing in and out of mood swings, haunting pedal steel guitar, a classic guitar solo and a crescendo of singing; catchy, hummable and infectious.
The timelessness and enduring sentiment of SOMEDAY grabs the listener and one can't help but get drawn into the song, or, to put it simply, it's a damn fine tune!
The core members of East Coast Outfit are brothers Ian and Gary Smith from Edinburgh, Scotland. As the project develops the intention is to build an ensemble of talent from all quarters of the globe and produce great music.
As singer-songwriters the brothers have been performing together in Scotland's thriving and competitive urban/suburban acoustic music bar scene and established folk club circuit as the acoustic duo Poachers Too (Ian on vocals & nylon strung guitar with Gary on bass)
They had a burning desire to form a 'real' band with the full sound and total Americana country rock experience. After finding that working with others, such as Vivien Scotson and Will Purdie on the Marie Curie Charity single The Daffodil Song, the fact that as well as being simply great fun, the bigger band sound worked really well with their material.
What's in a name? Most of the brothers' appearances and time to date have been spent in Glasgow and the West of Scotland, most notably with the Glasgow Songwriters Club.
In this small country bizarrely the 40 or so miles distance meant that Edinburgh is regarded as being from a far away place, hence the name East Coast Outfit, to distinguish them from the Wild West beyond Newbridge.
As Gary says,
"There's a universal appeal for this kind of music be it in Glasgow, Galveston or Godalming"
"It's just a great song and I want people to buy it so we can do more."
