The Wild West have released a new single covering Neil Young’s “Comes A Time”, as well as a music video that Tawny Ellis directed and edited. The pandemic-formed collective known as The Wild West consists of six female singer-songwriters in Los Angeles. Their working method celebrates equality among its members, all of whom have enjoyed significant success as solo artists: Manda Mosher, Deb Morrison, Amilia K Spicer, Tawny Ellis, Pi Jacobs, and Heather Anne Lomax.
The Wild West is currently working on their upcoming EP and all six members of the group write, produce, and oversee the recording process for songs they bring to the band. They take turns singing lead while supporting each other instrumentally and topping each song off with signature harmonies.
For their second single and video, “Comes A Time” they enlisted violinist Scarlet Rivera (Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue) and the track was mixed by the Bob Clearmountain.
For this new release, Tawny Ellis chose to bring in Neil Young’s “Comes A Time” due to her deep love and connection to the song.
“This song has always spoken to me on a deep level. I love Neil’s writing and I brought it to the band because I thought it would be gorgeous to see what us ladies could do with it, and I was right. The video is an ode to our beautiful earth, the pacific coast line and my deep love for it and how it inspires all of us. It’s an honor to have Scarlet Rivera’s energy on this. She is such a lover of nature and this song. This video is a celebration of the beauty of our world and all of us in it.”
Manda Mosher adds:
” ‘Comes A Time’ became a special comfort that was healing for us to play as a band in rehearsals. The harmonies and all the ladies’ instrumental parts weave together beautifully like a community banding together to weather all that lay ahead.”
