Gloriana’s Debut Disc Arrives to Rave Reviews
They've been wowing audiences on Taylor Swift's Fearless tour, now Gloriana's debut disc is finally in stores. Tom Gossin, Rachel Reinert, Mike Gossin and Cheyenne Kimball offer up a unique sound built around their shimmering four-part harmony, and critics are already taking note.
Formed in the winter of 2007, by brothers Tom and Mike, the pair moved to Nashville from North Carolina and soon discovered Rachel. "We had never combined our duo with a female voice before," says Mike, "but singing with her gave us that high harmony and opened us up to something new."
After seeing the group perform at a Nashville nightspot, Cheyenne says, "It renewed my passion for music." She joined them to form the quartet soon after that performance.
The group's debut single 'Wild at Heart' has already been downloaded more than 200,000 times, giving them the best selling song from a new country act in 2009. And while fans are hitting the record stores and online outlets to get a copy of the new album, Gloriana is in New York City, making the rounds at numerous media outlets. They'll be back in New York on August 27, to perform at Madison Square Garden.
In addition to all of the media coverage, The Boot has been following the group on tour, with fan correspondents given the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal by asking questions of the newcomers.
