Nashville psych-soul duo to release first record on 27 January 2017.
Former members of Sol Cat and several other personal projects, Aaron Martin and Johny Fisher are today considered as pillars of the Nashville rock scene. The two friends have now joined forces again for Okey Dokey, a mind-blowing piece of classic pop-rock duo admirably merging their individual influences. Their first LP, Love You, Mean It, will be released January 27 of next year, and to keep us waiting, the band has recently blessed us with a new video for the single “Wavy Gravy.”
In an interview with Third Outing, the band explains what this new album means to them: “Well, we never actually planned on a true theme for this album but after I started to get into the mode of the kind of music we wanted to hear, it really became an album based on the subtle comedies of love and really just about how easy it is to poke fun at.”
You can't fully appreciate the long history of recorded music without taking the time to look at the breakups. Whether it's for good or for the season, Okey Dokey is the product of that natural reformation that occurs when musicians part ways. Fronted by visual artist Aaron Martin and The Weeks' guitarist Johny Fisher, these two former band mates made the rare decision to revisit creating music together in Fisher's small cabin about 20 miles outside of Nashville, TN. What occurred was a well-blended mix of everything they loved about classic Motown combined with a dash of their psychedelic storytelling roots. With the record and touring band including a revolving group of musicians from bands such as Wild Child, The Weeks, Rayland Baxter, Desert Noises, Sol Cat, Ron Gallo, Diane Coffee and Warren Givens, their upcoming debut album 'Love You, Mean It' has a little bit of treasure for every type of listener.
