The jangling spaghetti western guitars and baritone storytelling vocals of A Little Farther West evoke the spirit of classic western movie soundtracks. The Oklahoma duo, consisting of Robert Maxwell Case and his wife Susie, offers up a retro sound featuring generous amounts of tremolo and reverb. In the work of A Little Farther West you'll hear the echoes of guitar heroes Duane Eddy, The Ventures, and The Shadows, as well as of renowned western motion picture composers Dmitri Tiomkin and Ennio Morricone.
The self-titled debut CD features the single: "A Little Farther West" plus "Ghost Riders In The Sky," "They Call The Wind Mariah," "Theme From High Noon," "I Fought The Law," "The High And The Mighty," "The Western Star (Telstar)," "Drifter," "Buckaroo," "(Katie And The) Navajo Rug," "This Moment Was Waiting For Me," and "Dreaming On The Trail."

Susie and Robert Maxwell Case
Robert Maxwell Case has been a modern journeyman solo entertainer all of his adult life. He met his wife Susie while working in Branson, MO during the early 1990's. In 2014 she resurrected her childhood piano lessons to begin playing keyboard behind his guitar and vocals and the duo of A Little Farther West was born.
Based in the Tulsa metro (Slick, OK), the group has joined the western music community through active participation in the Oklahoma chapter of the national Western Music Association. A Little Farther West has appeared as opening act in concert with Michael Martin Murphey and has performed often at the Gene Autry Oklahoma Museum in the Ardmore, OK area.
