Quarter Past: Updates
Hey y’all – we are now nearing a quarter through this year which means the 4th single in our monthly series will be released at the end of the month. So far we’ve made every deadline! And, while the music videos are slightly staggered behind the single releases, my director (and good buddy) Mick Leonardi and I are determined to make one for every song.
Let me catch you up on some of the exciting press that has come with these releases. Poison Apple kicked the series off in January, but it was quite a hustle to get everything together for that first release, so it was released with little fanfare… but for February’s release of Tennessee Girl, it was premiered through Glide Magazine with this feature: SONG PREMIERE: SHANE TUTMARC “TENNESSEE GIRL”
Shortly after Tennessee Girl was released I did a short, and very unique, interview with 5280 Roots Review for Jeffro’s Dirty Dozen: JEFFRO’S DIRTY DOZEN GUEST IS SHANE TUTMARC!!
For March’s release of When You Found Me, the Examiner gave a little backstory on the series and reviewed the first three singles with: NASHVILLE’S SHANE TUTMARC RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘WHEN YOU FOUND ME’
By mid-March, we had our first video premiere for our flagship song, Poison Apple via No Country for New Nashville: [VIDEO PREMIERE] SHANE TUTMARC DROPS VIDEO FOR ‘POISON APPLE’ FILMED AT FRAN’S EAST SIDE
As word started to spread about the singles series, AXS reviewed the first three, as well as pulled some quotes from me on the subject: SHANE TUTMARC FROM DOLOUR RELEASES NEW SINGLE FOR SINGLE-A-MONTH RELEASE PLAN
And finally, our local rag Nashville Scene got in on the action and shared Spotify links for the first three singles and wrote a very sweet blurb about the series. [FRESH TRACKS] ‘POISON APPLE’ ‘TENNESSEE GIRL’ ‘WHEN YOU FOUND ME’
In other news, I’m very honored to be performing in not one, but three of the sets for local fashion designer icon Manuel‘s surprise birthday party on Thursday, April 23rd. I’ll be playing a set of my originals, as well as backing up Tanya Montana Coe and closing out the night with my rocknroll party band, Date Nite. And keep your eyes peeled for the Tennessee Girl music video which should be premiering any day now! Suicide Weather will be the next single released, coming out April 28th.
