Hailing from deep in the Big Lick hills of Southwestern Virginia, GOTE hits the scene with guitar driven psychedelic blues reminiscent of days gone by with the jam sensibilities that will resonate with most music lovers. Since 2015 GOTE have been writing and producing phenomenal originals with textured tones and harmonically rich melodies. While a GOTE show is comprised of primarily original material, there is a seasoning of their influences in covers. John Prine, Allman Brothers, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, and Grateful Dead are just a few examples of where the inspiration has flowed through.
In the early months of 2019, GOTE entered the recording studio and will soon present an EP consisting of four original songs from the ensemble, these tunes represent the diverse influences and musical soundscapes that have shaped GOTE’s sound. They are looking forward to releasing the EP in mid 2019.
