Western Centuries

January 26, 2020 @ 7:00 pm


Honky-tonk supergroup Western Centuries aren’t bound by any dictum to write songs in a modern country, or even a retro-country style; instead they’re taking their own personal influences and fusing them into a sound that taps deep roots while moving beyond the constraints of country.

Part of the reason they can make music with a range of influences is because of their roots in city life. Both Cahalen Morrison and Ethan Lawton, two of the three principal songwriters, live in Seattle’s diverse South end, and the third songwriter, Jim Miller, spends most of his time in and around New York City.

The urban landscape is rarely mentioned in country music, but it makes for a refreshing sound that draws as easily from modern R&B as it does George Jones.
