Being members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) isn’t easy in the music industry, but Due West seems to be handling the pressure just fine. The country trio has swept fans off of their feet in a short amount of time, but have definitely earned their loyalty. After being signed and dropped, due to a large merger of Sony and BMG, they decided to make a bold move by going independent. They are now signed with Larry Pareigis’s Nine North Records, and aren’t looking back. They are in control, and are thriving in the driver’s seat.
Matthew Lopez, Brad Hull, and Tim Gates make up the band. Their friendship is mentioned in basically anything you can read of them, and is obvious to see when they perfom. They are tight, like brothers, and share a mutual respect that keeps their momentum rolling. They are in Nashville, Tennessee, performing, writing, and collaborating with the industry’s best. This won’t be the last time you hear about Due West: this country trio is here to stay.
Due West’s debut album “Due West” is available now.
