Imagine a ride back to a distant past, where the west was yet to be won. Savor the smell of sagebrush and gunpowder as the Indulgers unfold their new musical journey "Out In The West".
Inspired by the bands western travels and stories of their forefathers, "Out In The West" taps into the spirit of the old west through the eyes of the Celtic immigrant. Breaking new musical frontiers by blending their Celtic heritage signature sound with America's "amber waves of grain" the Indulgers create a panoramic musical adventure of the old west and it's changes.
"Out In The West" takes you by the reigns beginning with the upbeat toe tapping "Park City Silver" into the gun slinging epic "High Noon". Track 3 "Cheyenne" pays homage to the men who laid the rail. The songs sing of a time that was wild and lawless delivering a Celtic sound inspired by the western landscape.
During the past eight years, The Indulgers (Damien McCarron - vocals/guitar, Renee Fine - fiddle, Mike Nile - vocals/guitar/mandolin/accordion/whistle/pipes, Pat Murphy - drums, and Chris Murtaugh - bass) toured the country extensively from their western base of Golden/Boulder Colorado. After several east coast tours the band concentrated on the roads less traveled in the west and began creating the music for their 6th CD. Deadwood, Rapid City, South Dakota; Cheyenne, Gillette, Wyoming; Chadron, Nebraska and Cripple Creek, Black Hawk, Durango, Colorado became Indulger territory along with larger cities like Las Vegas, Denver, Kansas City and San Francisco.
Family stories and old letters passed down provided inspiration for the telling in the songs. "Out In the West" speaks of a period of history where the new America was wide open to all and the possibilities seemed endless on a new frontier. There's pride in those stories and letters, and in these songs. Pride for the people with ancestors that blazed a trail out into the west and the immigrants that gave life, sweat and blood to create the dreams of a new nation.
Engineered and produced by veteran team Mike Nile and Neale Heywood(Fleetwood Mac) the band sounds as tight and punchy as ever. Heywood continues to guest as the sixth member of the Indulgers and contributes guitar and organ to the Celt/rock sound. So…saddle up! Join the Indulgers for a wild-west ride and through their new thirteen-song masterpiece "Out In The West".
