Singer-Songwriter Ty Stonehawker To Release New Single -- "Please! Please! Please!" Due 1/26/24!

NASHVILLE, Tenn- Breakout indie jam band artist Ty Stonehawker (Stonehouse Entertainment), recognized for his eclectic recordings and colorful, energetic live performances, has announced the scheduled release of his new single, "Please! Please! Please!"* The rootsy, hoot-and-holler track, written by Stonehawker and engineered and produced by acclaimed Mark “Mooka'' Rennick (Tom Waits/Journey Ufo/Bob Dylan/Gavin Bryars/Billy Prine) rouses the boot-stomping energy of Mumford and Sons and caters to audiences with a palate for flavorful music. The single will be available Friday, January 26, 2024, via all digital retail and streaming outlets with the presale/pre-save event beginning January 19, 2024. (Digital retail and streaming services headed by Ed Gertler/Digital Retail Services.)

Embracing a tumultuous personal chapter of Stonehawker’s life and rustic roots, the evocative musical narrative unfolds with a raw authenticity to merge seamlessly with upbeat, barn-burning bluegrass instrumentation. Telltale lyrics plead for redemption while the beckoning chorus, “please, please, please, let me go back to my baby, let me go back to my kin,” heightens the cinematic storyline that echoes the inherent emotional cry to revisit nostalgic moments. Stonehawker’s gravelly vocals, supported by a rolling rhythm section, portray a weariness sustained by a spirited and jovial thread of hope to return to the familiar, and comforting arms of home and loved ones.

“This track feels like ‘O Brother Where Art Thou’ meets Mumford & Sons,” said the Portland, Oregon-based singer-songwriter. “It’s a true ’lemons into lemonade’ story; I wrote this one while sitting in jail. The lyrics are a tell-all. Nuff said!”

Recorded at Prairie Sun Studios (Cotata, CA), Studio 115 in Oklahoma City, OK and a private boutique studio in Portland, OR owned by Mooka, the tune’s instrumental prowess features performances by a cadre of seasoned musicians, boasts folky resonance, and is complemented by simplistic production to spotlight driving acoustic guitars, spirited banjo plucks, and a pulsing rhythm section that harnesses Stonehawker’s effervescent personality and live performance.

The lead track from Stonehawker’s much anticipated EP, titled GAMBLIN’ MAN (due April 2024), “Please! Please! Please!” is a testament to his commitment to honest, heartfelt storytelling and artistic versatility.
