Lexie Roth “Western Skies” – Features Willy Mason & Arlen Roth

Lexie Roth grew up in a musical household, her father is guitarist Arlen Roth who has played with the likes of Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Simon and Garfunkel, and…The Bee-Gees.  He adds the slide guitar on ‘Western Skies‘, giving it a cinematic edge.   Lexie Roth is also assisted by Willy Mason, who adds a low rumble of a vocal to the song.

Lexie Roth explained the inspiration for ‘Western Skies‘: “I wrote Western Skies after spending a significant time on the west coast and on the road driving across country, over six times now. There is a certain innate grief that comes over me when driving through small desolate towns. I wanted to imagine what my personal pain would feel like through the lens of a husband being widowed by his beloved wife and being left to raise their children without her. I wanted to depict how moving it is for him to see her.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
