The County Well recently released their new album “Villains, Victims and Visionaries” and to celebrate they tell us about the song “I Am The Grey Sky”. Here is the story:

“The new County Well album is called Villains, Victims and Visionaries and each song describes a person or some content which places it in one or more of these categories.

“‘I Am The Grey Sky’ drops our hero into a black and white movie, where the sky is always grey. He is also dreaming and like in a dream not sure whether he is coming or going. He is a ‘visionary’ who is one with the universe, ‘can see forever wide’ but not sure if he is looking for his partner or if she is looking for him. What I like about this song, is it’s ambiguity. Zimmer’s writing takes you out of the mundane and for those two or three minutes, you are on a Western adventure. The loss is always there, but so is the gain. The guitars dig deep as your imagination soars. Check it out and enjoy” – Don Zimmer

(Producer of The County Well: Villains Victims and Visionaries, and plays guitar on all thirteen tracks) “What I like about this song, is it’s ambiguity. Zimmer’s writing takes you out of the mundane and for those two or three minutes, you are on a Western adventure. The loss is always there, but so is the gain. The guitars dig deep as your imagination soars” – Jeffrey Halford (lead vocals and slide guitar on “I Am The Grey Sky”).
