Separately, Johnnyswim and Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors are two of the decade's most acclaimed acts, swirling a range of influences — from modern folk and pop/rock to bluesy, southern soul — into songs like "Home" and "American Beauty." They join forces for Goodbye Road, a stunning EP that reimagines the musicians as a supergroup of singer/songwriters.
Featuring the harmony-heavy vocals of Penny and Sparrow on several tracks, Goodbye Road was written and recorded in the wake of an emotionally-charged year that included the racial assaults in Charlottesville, the loss of rock & roll icon Tom Petty, and the heartbreaking attack upon an audience of music fans at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. The result is a record that not only doubles down on swooning, sweeping melodies, but also offers messages of hope and resilience. It's bright, clear-eyed music for cloudier times.
Rooted in a mix of acoustic guitars, classic songwriting, upright pianos, ringing reverb, and stacked harmonies, Goodbye Road is an album about endings and new beginnings. About finding the courage to move ahead, with your friends serving as support. Collaboratively written, it brings together three acts and five singer/songwriters, proof that there's strength in numbers.
