Named after a haunting Bob Dylan song, Farewell Angelina is a country trio with powerhouse vocalists, dynamic songwriters and accomplished multi-instrumentalists. Their stellar blend of heart-stopping harmonies over blazing double violins and guitars has earned soaring praise across the board. Roughstock calls them a “Superstar Act… with Killer Songs.” Rolling Stone says, “Wickedly smart songwriting delivered with a healthy dash of sass… deft playing… into one sonic knockout punch.”
A band of longtime friends, Ashley Gearing, Nicole Witt & Andrea Young deeply respected and admired one another while they were building successful solo careers, touring and recording with top artists, and writing songs for some of Country Music’s biggest hitmakers. When they heard the undeniable magic of their voices together for the first time, they couldn’t wait to take their show on the road. Major opportunities soon followed including singing the National Anthem for Thursday Night Football, The Unbridled Eve Gala for the Kentucky Derby, the ACM All-Star Jam, and festivals in Switzerland, Norway, Spain and France.
Farewell Angelina’s chemistry lives in watching each other shine, and most of all, creating moments every night with the Country Music fans they love so much. The relationship they share with their fans won them the fan-voted “Hot Seat” spot of the Taste of Country 2017 “RISERS” Program by over 20,000 votes. They’ve also been named among Rolling Stone‘s “New Artists You Need To Know,” and Roughstock‘s “Ones to Watch” with a tour schedule to prove it. The girls have opened shows for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Old Dominion, Frankie Ballard, Jake Owen, Billy Currington, Maroon 5, and Trace Adkins, to name a few. The girls joined The Bacon Brothers (Kevin & Michael) as the opening act on many dates of their last two summer tours.
The band’s highly anticipated Women and Wine EP (that the band co-produced) was released on January 25th, 2019 to rave reviews.
Music Row’s Bob Oermann says,”This band has flawlessly rehearsed vocal harmonies to spare. The shimmering, echoey production is lovely. The song is super contemporary: “You know only two things get better with time, women and wine.” Welcome to the winner’s circle.”
CMT celebrated with a worldwide premiere of the band’s music video for the single, “Ghosts.” which was #1 on the CMT 12Pack Countdown for 3 weeks and held within the top 3 for 6 weeks.
Billboard debuted the band’s second video of the year on September 5, 2019 called “More Problems.” Billboard’s Annie Reuter says, “Alongside warm pop-country production, stunning harmonies and a sing along chorus, “More Problems” is an earworm that’s the perfect respite to the end of the summer.” CMT also released the video as a part of their “Next Up Now” platform.
The end of 2020 finds the band in the studio, working on their next full-length album, which fans should see out sometime in 2021. In the meantime, they’re getting ready to release a heartfelt cover of the Eagles’ hit, “Hotel California,” which is their offering of hope and remembrance for those who lost their lives and property in the California fires of 2020.
