Goodnight Lane’s first track “Circles in the Yard” was produced by Bay Area producer Scott Mathews, an industry legend whose resume includes: Clapton, Jagger, Richards, Orbison, Costello, Hiatt, Santana, Ramone, and Wilson. Gilmore sent Matthews his first recording, the EP Four of No Kind, which led to the two co-writing and recording three songs.
Grammy-winning producer Lloyd Maines and Eric McKinney co-produced the album, with the exception of “Circles InThe Yard.” Colin also showcased at SXSW and NXNE.
2010 is shaping up to be a busy and productive year for Austin based singer Colin Gilmore. He spent much of the year touring the US, opening for bands like The Flatlanders, Alejandro Escovedo and Mason Jennings, setting up the release of Goodnight Lane.
Gilmore was raised in the musically rich town of Lubbock, where he was influenced by family friends Joe Ely and Butch Hancock, as well as Terry Allen and the late Jesse Taylor but you can also hear his love of the Clash, the Ramones, the Pogues, the Sex Pistols in his music.
The Austin, TX singer-songwriter is building his reputation the old-fashioned way: hard work and imagination. He and his new wife’s idea of the perfect honeymoon was a tour of Japan, where he played eight cities in 10 days, complete with a different backing band at each gig. Since then, his audiences have been steadily growing in size and enthusiasm. The Flatlanders included Gilmore’s song “The Way We Are” on their latest album Hills and Valleys. It became the album’s number one selling song on iTunes.
