An email went out to everyone on the mailing list this morning and Josh stated the work has officially begun on the debut single "About A Girl". You can read that email for yourself below.
Josh here. Just wanted to touch base with everyone and bring you up to speed with the new single. Joe and I had a skype meeting with part of the team from Nashville yesterday to get things rolling on the song. I feel we walked away with a real feeling of the finished product. The song carries such a drive. We’re also going to add some rootsie elements as well. (Picture Keith Urban early 2000’s vibe… but current lol) We’re working with a ton of talented people on this project. To start with, the writers on this song alone, Josh Martin who was featured in Rolling Stone just this week for his new single “Cold Again”, Kylie Sackley who is nominated for songwriter of the year this year for the Canadian CMA’s, and singer/songwriter Andy Skib who is the lead singer of the rock band Midwest Kings and spent 2009 touring with American Idols David Cook. Not to mention all the musicians involved. There is a lot of talent on board and Joe and I are honestly pinching ourselves to have the opportunity to represent their work. Also, there a lot of belief from the team this song could be TOP 40 so we have a great group now beginning to reach out to their contacts to prepare it for Country Music Radio. So, it’s an understatement for me to say we are so excited to bring this to you.
This song was legitimately pitched to us by mistake. We were only listening to hear the quality of the song and I just lyrically fell in love with the song itself. I felt like it was a song that could really highlight who we are as artist. There’s so much pressure to release a song especially a debut single because your first single really sets the tone for who you are as artist. So, we have really tried to be extremely selective when it comes to this first song. However, the moment we heard the demo of About A Girl it was almost like I knew instantly that this was it. I felt it in my gut.
The guitar tracks and scratch vocals are being worked on as we speak. They’re supposed to send them to me for approval by this evening. Anyway, we love being able to communicate with you all so email us back! We love to hear from y’all.
Y’all just keep praying for us as things are coming together. Start getting excited and building hype about the release. Tell everyone you know! We can’t wait to see where this journey takes us.
