Gasoline & Matches are ending an exceptional year with the final release from their self-titled debut ep. Demonstrating a more vulnerable and stripped back style, Tequila’s A Healer reminisces about loved ones lost and the little things that remind you of them.
Gavin Monaghan beautifully produced this raw and emotive single, recorded on a 40 year old Epiphone 12string acquired in the Mojave Desert. It’s rumoured to have belonged to Willie Nelson’s late stage manager Poodie Locke, but one thing we can be sure of is it’s now immortalised in this heart felt ballad.
‘We all lose someone we love, and there’s always those things that remind you of them. It’s those memories that keep them alive in your heart and I hope this song helps remind you of that.” – Sally Rea Morris
Rounding off an impressive debut year after being named ‘Duo of the Year’ at The British CMA Awards, can they now pick up a Christmas Country Number 1?
