Gooch & The Motion deliver a unique blend of country, blues, and rock nʼ roll straight out of South Jersey. Nine-time Grammy Award-winning producer Joe “The Butcher” Nicolo says, “They have a one-of-a-kind sound that also makes you nostalgic of artists youʼve listened to in the past.” The bandʼs second studio albumOutside the Window is out now and can be streamed everywhereHERE. The album showcases bandleader Ryan “Gooch” Nelsonʼs growth lyrically and musically since his debut release Cominʼ Home. The energy and connection within the band is truly at all-time high!
