The Song I Can’t Stop Listening To – Odessa – “Gather Round”

This dry heat. That hot wind. The expansive sky. A remote outpost half way between Ft Worth and El Paso.

This is where I live now – Midland, TX, 15 miles on Highway 191 from Odessa, TX. And that heat, this wind, that sky – is what I experience every day. And this physical surrounding is what Odessa, the artist, sounds like. She’s dry and sparse, but soothing and sweet at the same time.

I discovered Odessa’s music just after I got here, and the slow-strummed acoustic, the Spaghetti Western steel, and her lilting alto voice create this incredible soundscape that really mimics the land that surrounds me.

She is still emerging and establishing herself, so please give her your support. Enjoy the song.
