"Bridge the Beats Magazine CD Review"

This newly-formed trio of talented musicians is a breath of fresh air! Their debut album "We'll Get By" is a blend of all things Americana: Soul,R&B, Adult Contemporary, Blues and Folk. Splashed with just the right amount of attitude, The Wide Open builds on their 3 part harmonies with an infectious sound that will leave you asking "How can 3 people sound like a 6-piece band?" Simple, they feature some awesome harmonica work,banjo,ukulele, and i would swear I heard a washboard in there somewhere! I was already familiar with the ultra-talented Season Ammons, and she has never sounded better than on this CD! A little flirty, a little bawdy and a whole lot of passion define her strong vocals that weave seamlessly with bandmates and top-notch musicians Allen Rayfield and Traylin Gastone. This album is upbeat, creative, and definitely has a summertime vibe to it, seeing them play live is officially on my bucket list!!! - Kenny Graves

"Record Round Up- The Beachcomber Magazine"

The Wide Open is Fort Walton Beach trio with eyes on taking over the musical landscape. With acoustic oriented songs dunked in vats of energy and charm, the group’s first release highlights their ability to be a collaborative unit. It’s a fun album from a fun group of people! - Nikki Hendricks
