Chart-topping BBR Music Group/BMG’s Wheelhouse Records’ rowdy outliers LOCASH are escaping to the WOODS & WATER on their brand-new EP available today (11/5) on all streaming platforms and digital retailers.

“Whenever we're about to release new music, we still get super excited, a little nervous, and extremely thankful that we have fans out there who want to be a part of this journey,” shares LOCASH. “Some of you have been ridin’ with us from the beginning and this one is for you, along with all of the new LOCASH lifers who have just jumped on the bus with us! We always want our music to bring a smile to your face, so hopefully you’ll find that feel-good feeling while you kick back, listen, and sing along to our WOODS & WATER – EP.”

Offering an unapologetic voice for the people raised in the middle of nowhere, their Southern-Rock-infused tropes of rural life bring a much-needed fun-and-brash attitude to Country music. Inspired by not only where they go now to recharge as adults, but from each of their childhood locales – Preston Brust, a PK (preacher’s kid), was raised in Kokomo, IN, by way of Arkansas and surrounded by nature, while Chris Lucas grew up in Baltimore, MD, on the water – WOODS & WATER – EP represents both.

Dropping five feel-good tracks with each penned by at least one member of the duo, the wild-and-free collection bobs on LOCASH’s high-energy twang along with lyrics that capture their signature big picture optimism and penchant for living large in a small town. Produced by Corey Crowder (Florida Georgia Line, Chris Young) with additional production by Clint Lagerberg, the getaway set bursts with party-ready anthems, laid-back grooves, and made-in-the-shade contentment, as it sonically rolls from earthy Roots-Rock, to sunny, beachside Country jams – and even reimagines one of American music’s most iconic songs with LOCASH’s harmony edge on “Beach Boys.”

Touting bucket list writers for WOODS & WATER – EP like The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson and Mike Love on the easy-breezy tune, watch the project’s salt-kissed visualizer for “Beach Boys.” Sampling the band’s classic “I Get Around” hook for a chill-Country concoction of oceanfront optimism and backwoods style, the go-with-the-flow footage was directed by Josh Warner, with sandy shots from Florida beaches.

Creating a sound that fuses modern Country and classic heartland rock with an edgy vocal blend – and a growing reputation for mixing backwoods pride with big-picture positivity – BBR Music Group/BMG’s Wheelhouse Records’ LOCASH is the Country music duo of singer-songwriters Preston Brust and Chris Lucas. Now rising up the Country ranks with a streak of hits, critical acclaim and awards-show recognition, the duo has two albums, eight charting singles, and nearly 500 MILLION global streams to their credit, with more on the horizon. After breaking out in 2015 with their GOLD-certified tribute to appreciating what you’ve got, “I Love This Life,” LOCASH followed up with two more tracks defined by gratitude and good times. The flirtatious, GOLD-certified #1 smash, “I Know Somebody,” became their first trip to the top of the Country radio airplay charts in 2016, and in 2017, LOCASH dropped the fun-loving romantic anthem, “Ring on Every Finger.” All three singles were part of their album, THE FIGHTERS, which arrived in 2016 to Top 15 success. The duo has since received nominations from the genre’s biggest awards shows – including back-to-back nods for New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year from the Academy of Country Music, and Vocal Duo of the Year from the Country Music Association, both in 2017. After joining the BBR Music Group/BMG family, LOCASH launched its latest album, BROTHERS, in 2019, which featured another GOLD-certified #1 single, “One Big Country Song.” Respected stage performers with a nationwide audience, they’ve just released the wild-and-free five-track, WOODS & WATER – EP.
