When Jeremy Pinnell released OH/KY in the summer of 2015 to stunned acclaim, it felt like an
entire career compressed into one knock-out album. Hailed as, a “Mind-blowingly good” (Greg
Vandy/KEXP) “ ”tutorial on classic country music” (Popmatters), Pinnell’s debut immediately
differentiated as authentic and unflinching. Dogged touring through Europe and the States and
celebrated radio sessions followed, cementing Pinnell’s position as a no-fuss master of his craft.
If the third time’s a charm, Pinnell is all shine and sparkle on the forthcoming Goodbye LA.
Produced by Texan Jonathan Tyler, the tunes buff the wax and polish the chrome on Country
music’s deeper roots. Rooted in his steady acoustic guitar, Pinnell’s songs are shot through with
honest and classic elements. The rhythm section, all snap and shuffle, finds purpose in well-
worn paths. The pedal steel and Telecaster stingers arrive perfectly on cue, winking at JP’s
world-wise couplets . Here slippery organ insinuates gospel into the conversation.
At his best, Jeremy Pinnell chronicles the joy and sorrow of being human, which is the best that
anyone could do.
