I thought I’d follow through on reviewing Old Dominion‘s album, It Was Always Yours. The band is based out in Nashville, TN. Its members are:
- Matt Ramsey – vocals/guitar
- Devin Malone – guitar
- Trevor Rosen – guitar/vocals
- Geoff Sprung – bass
- John Henry Trinko – keys
- Whit Sellers – drums
The album is an EP of five songs, Wake Up Loving You, That’s How We Do Summertime, Slow, Day One, Windows One and Girls. It plays like summertime rock, with a mix of country and honky tonk. I found it really enjoyable and a good addition to my summertime playlist. According to the band’s Facebook page, their influences are Tom Petty, Radney Foster, Pearl Jam, John Hiatt, rock, country, rock, country, rock, country… I understand you can get a free copy of the album if you contact them.
Here’s a clip of them playing Wake Up Loving You from their YouTube channel:
