Recorded in Pueblo, Colorado by Sean Fanning and Inaiah Lujan (The Haunted Windchimes), New West Sound’s 12 tracks run the gamut from old country and bluegrass to a newer blues, rock and soul sound, all the while maintaining a common thread throughout… Great original songwriting!

Joe Johnson put together quite the band to bring these songs to life, the core of which contains; Josh DeSmidt (The Broken Spoke), on lap steel and harmonium, Sean Fanning (The Haunted Windchimes), on bass, Aaron Fanning (The Ghost of Michael Clark), on drums, Jacob Klock (Concert master for the Colo. Springs Chamber Orchestra), on fiddle, violin and viola, and Inaiah Lujan (The Haunted Windchimes) on electric guitar and banjo. And like many a Blank Tape record there certainly is no shortage of guest appearances; Grant Sabin, Alex Koshak, Desirae Garcia & Chela Lujan, Brett McClintock and Jason Gilmore.
