Great Western Tears

The Great Western Tears are a Country band and acoustic duo hailing from Oxford England who subscribe whole heartedly to the Ameripolitan ethos of authentic Roots music. The song-writing partnership of Dava Waterhouse and Garry Richardson is the foundation of the band with both having a deep running respect and love for old time Country, Blues, folk and late 60’s West coast, matched to lived-in lyricism and expressive acoustic picking. While they believe they can do any of their songs proud with the bare bones of guitar and vocal, Kurt Hamilton’s creative pedal steel playing and Fern Thornton’s vocals add depth and atmosphere to the tales they tell.
