WATLING & BATES

CIDERVILLE

from the SMALL TOWN TALES album.

DD184 – WATLING & BATES – CIDERVILLE

 

CIDERVILLE, by WATLING & BATES, is a song of change, of finding a place to rest and gather strength before moving on. An invisible crossroad, far from the busy highway, where no one finds you unless you want to be found. 

KYM WATLING backs an impassioned vocal with a sparkling country rhythm on the acoustic guitar while producer THOR PHILLIPS pits desolation against redemption on the sharp steel of his Dobro.  CIDERVILLE also features the resonant tones of JOHN WILLSTEED (GoBetweens, Disgraceland, Halfway) on bass.

WATLING & BATES are songwriters from the mountains of Unumgar NSW and practitioners of old time Gothic hillbilly honkytonk.  CIDERVILLE is taken from the duo’s 2018 SMALL TOWN TALES album.
