Gone West


Gone West​ is an American ​country pop​ group composed of ​Colbie Caillat​, ​Justin Young​, ​Jason Reeves​, and Nelly Joy. They signed with ​Triple Tigers​ and released their debut ​EP​, ​Tides​, on January 18, 2019.

Gone West was formed in 2018 and is composed of two couples: Colbie Caillat and her fiancé Justin Young, and Jason Reeves and his wife Nelly Joy, and was formed following the four touring together in support of Caillat’s ​The Malibu Sessions​. The band is based out of ​Nashville, Tennessee​ and gets its name from the fact that its four members all hail from states (Iowa, Texas, California, Hawaii) west of Tennessee, which was the inspiration for the band’s “autobiographical theme song” and titular track “Gone West.” All of its members had previous experience in the music industry as recording artists and songwriters: Caillat as a Grammy-winning folk pop artist, Young as an artist in the ​contemporary Hawaiian music​ scene, Reeves as a songwriter of some of Caillat’s biggest hits and an indie artist, and Nelly Joy as one half of country duo ​the JaneDear girls​.
