Gloriana Returns Home For FrogFest [VIDEO]
Gloriana is returning home. Tom and Mike Gossin, who grew up in New Hartford, along with Rachel Reinert, will play for a hometown crowd at Wild West FrogFest & Rodeo June 13th at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds, presented by White's Farm Supply.
Mike Gossin says they're pumped to come back. "It's been a really long while since we've done anything back home. So we're really looking forward to it."
Gloriana has been busy working on their third album, which includes their latest single 'Trouble.' "We took a lot of time with this record. It was two years in the making. We recorded it in five different states while we were on tour with Rascal Flatts. We was really a cool and different process this time around. I can't wait for you guys to hear it," says Gossin.
A different process translates to a different sound Gossin says. "We're a little older, a little wiser. This is our either year as a band, so there's definitely a bit more maturity in this record. We just pulled from our life experiences. Whether it be relationships or stories from the road. It's all there."
Gloriana is excited to finally be a part of FrogFest this year. Coming home is always special for Tom and Mike. "Every show is important but the hometown shows a just a little more special. There's always friends and family in the crowd, plus all the people that supported Tom and I growing up there."
Tom and Mike have been playing guitar and singing since a young age. Captain Trips Rain Forest Preserve "I was playing gigs there when I was 16 years-old on a school night. (Thank you mom for allowing me to do that.) Tom and I would play all over the place."
Did the Gossin brothers career begin because of girls? "We did the sport thing too. Tom was really good at baseball. I played a little bit of basketball. But we found out we weren't that good at sports and we weren't going to get any chicks that way, so we picked up a guitar and here we are. Things are going pretty well."
