MusicRow welcomed trio Gloriana to its Nashville office recently, where the group offered a preview of “Trouble,”  the lead single from their forthcoming third album. The group’s Rachel Reinert, Tom Gossin, and Mike Gossin served up intricate harmonies during their acoustic rendition of the song.

“It’s based on a a true story I went through with a boyfriend a few years ago,” said Reinert. “He was a liar and a cheater, and it was really therapy in a song. We girls can be detectives when we feel like anything is going wrong, and when we find out, we’ll [mess] your world up.”

“It was two years in the making,” said Mike. “We recorded it in five different states, in Tennessee, but also in Montana, Nevada, California and New York City. We wrote 100 songs for the album, and narrowed it down to 11 tracks.”

They penned all but three songs on the album. “We always want to put some outside songs on albums,” added Mike. “We have a ‘best song wins’ policy. We are so happy with the 11 songs we ended up choosing. It sounds like a full album. We don’t just record three or four strong songs that we think will be potential singles, and then just use filler for the rest of the album. These are all good songs. Even though these days, it’s a singles game and not an album game. We wanted 11 songs that would be good enough to be singles, a project that will make you want to listen to the entire album.”

“No matter how many downloads or streams are popular, great albums don’t have a problem selling,” said Tom. “We wanted to make a great album.”

They finished with a rendition of  their hit single, “Kissed You (Good Night),” which was penned by Tom Gossin and Josh Kear, and later certified platinum.
