Debut album Brand New Distance announces Cimarron 615 as a vibrant new country rock voice with deep Nashville roots. It channels a collective heritage that includes Poco, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and Loretta Lynn into ten refreshingly contemporary, harmony-laden songs.
Cimarron 615 comprises five respected singer-songwriter instrumentalists: Tom Hampton (Marshall Tucker Band, Idlewheel); Bill Lloyd (Foster & Lloyd, Ringo Starr); Rick Lonow (Loretta Lynn, Flying Burrito Brothers); Jack Sundrud (Vince Gill, Great Plains); and Michael Webb (Hank Williams Jr., John Fogerty).
The astoundingly filler-free Brand New Distance oozes world-class song craft and musicality enhanced with achingly nuanced harmonies, poignant lyrics, and sinewy solos. Marrying bluegrass instrumentation to breezy California country rock, authentically gritty blues, and pop sensibilities, Cimarron 615 spans everything from stripped-down acoustic arrangements to full-on three-guitar rock, with an unpredictable live show noted for rare on-stage chemistry.
