Taken off their much-anticipated ten-track album set for 6th April 2021 release named ‘Black Mountain Sessions‘, The Courier Pigeons sing so gracefully on the lead single called ‘Gypsy Train‘.
The Courier Pigeons are a thoughtful Winston Salem, North Carolina-based indie-country/folk duo consisting of Jeremy Johnson and Bill Jarrett. They have that genuine feel to their creations that are all about the true connection in life, no matter where you are headed.
”This is a story of positivity in what was a difficult period of time for us all. Musical soulmates reunited from a distance under quarantine.”- The Courier Pigeons
This is the story about keeping your head up when things are tough, as you take a journey through the authentic old towns that have so much history. You are on the mission to find your peace and come across lots of adventures, that have you learning so much about yourself as you find your good friend along the way.
You feel his wise voice float over the loving guitar, as the song simmers in warm when it is cold and wet outside from these unpredictable times. This is that perfect road trip song – that has you holding onto something safe – when you don’t know what is going to happen next.
‘Gypsy Train’ from North Carolina’s The Courier Pigeons, is a message written deeply from the isolated cabin in Black Mountain, as they created something special to distract themselves from the bleak times outside. They have intricately made a wholesome song here that has your heart slowly healing from the frostbite, as you feel their love for making music that is so meaningful and textured just right.
