40 Miles Out is a contemporary pop group formed by writers Scott January and Steve Terry in 1998. The two met in early 1991 and began writing together later that year. Their unique style is derived from their diverse musical influences that range from the Eagles to Lionel Richie. Their music blends memorable vocal melodies, acoustic guitar, a touch of saxophone, and a positive message to produce a soothing and unique contemporary sound that is reminiscent of the 1970’s and early 1980’s
