Gonna Let You

Background: Joel and I have been playing music together forever, but it took moving to Los Angeles to really figure out our working relationship. Being brothers, we knew it would shine a light on layers of our history and the baggage that comes with family dynamics, but knew it was crucial if we wanted to make the musical partnership work. So, we basically forced the living situation: getting up every morning, staring at each other, sharing a bathroom, and forced engagement regardless of the circumstance. It was tricky, and often hard, but it allowed us to work through stuff and grow both musically and as people. We spent a lot of time reading, writing, and listening to music, and learned how to bring out the strength in one another to maximize our collective creativity. It was a definitive time for us, and has heavily shaped our vision as artists. About three months before tracking our first record "Locksley," we limited our listening to Beatles and Stevie Wonder records in order to push into the creative process and draw out some influence from two of our favorites. You can hear the influence of 'Rubber Soul' and 'Revolver' on that record, and some of Stevie's influence in Locksley B-sides, and our more recent EPs. The Way-Back Background: Growing up in Southern California has been extremely influential in shaping our reality. We grew up on the coast, and feel that nothing on earth is more grounding and inspiring than the ocean. Although, the relationships and experiences from the years spent with our extended family in the South have made the greatest impact. Everything I am is affected by those experiences. To this day, I can smell the air at my grandfather's lake plantation outside West Memphis, Arkansas. I can feel the water, warm on the surface and cool five inches below. I can hear the crickets, tree frogs, and the voices of the people. I can smell the soil and taste the food. I can see the roads, the bridge, the general store... Our music, relationships,

(Scott Owen, Joel Owen, Jeff Trott) 

i know i don’t make things easy
still you’re here and you believe in me
you should be leavin
your sweet voice is saying something
i’m too busy, busy talking
i should be listening

you break it open
you make it better
you want to sit me down and talk about forever
i want to let you
i’m gonna let you now

you see more in me than i do
no one thinks that i deserve you
don’t you believe them
i know i don’t say i need you
but i need to, ‘cause i need you
you’ve got me listening

you break it open
and make it better
you want to sit me down and talk about forever
i wanna let you
i’m gonna let you now

not gonna let you down

you break it open
and make it better
you want to sit me down and talk about forever
let’s break it open
and make it better
sit down and honestly talk about forever
i want to let you
i want to let you
i want to let you
i’m gonna let you now
