Country Duo Wester Debut Into the Scene with Honky-Tonk Inspired Debut Single (Interview)
The new country brother/sister duo Wester debut into the country music scene with their debut single “Redneck RollerCoaster.”
Listeners will feel like they’re at a Honky Tonk celebration with this up-tempo, rowdy, and fun debut release.
“It celebrates Lower Broadway, Nashville, Tn. It’s about the thrill of riding up and down the street looking at the honkytonks and their flashing neon signs. It’s about the posters of the greats with pictures of Johnny Cash on billboards, inviting tourists to hear the bands play their best renditions. It’s about the bachelorette parties and all the festivities of this famous place. Going down Broadway is like riding a rollercoaster. It can be thrilling or treacherous just depending on what turns the day takes. Millions stand in line to take this ride in the home of live country music,” explains Wester.
Born in Pensacola Beach, Florida, and raised on the Redneck Riviera, the group is fun, fresh, and explosive for the young country music audience. Rafe brings grit, and Pearl brings the glitter, so together they sing and dance their way around town.
“For people who have visited Nashville, I hope this song immediately brings back that thrill of visiting the honkytonks of Lower Broadway. For people who have not enjoyed the country music side of Nashville, I hope they will come and join the fun. It’s a slice-of-life vibe,” explains Wester.
The band has performed forty shows around the country and written forty new songs in a year, resulting in the release of their debut release.
“My brother Rafe and I have written almost 40 songs in the last year since we have started singing together and performed almost 40 shows. It’s the time between now and the end of the year to record and release. There’s a lot more to having a music career than singing, even though that’s the part we love best!” explains Pearl Clarkin of Wester.
