“A magical, melodic and diverse song, with such a nostalgic mood, and with care are used many motifs of rock music. Single -Laketown- ideally balances between excellent melody and uncompromising effort of charismatic male vocals.”
“Мягкая, мелодичная и разнообразная песня, в которой с такой ностальгической ноткой и с любовью использованы яркие мотивы рок музыки. Сингл -Laketown- идеальный баланс между отличной мелодией и бескомпромиссным напором харизматичного мужского вокала.”
Bristol Records is thrilled to announce the digital release of “Laketown” – the new single from Canadian country artist Rod Black – distributed by SONY/The Orchard via Copperline. Now available on all digital platforms, “Laketown” will be released to Canadian country radio on June 7th.
A country ode to beautiful summer weather, good company, and great music by the lake, “Laketown” was written by Rod Black and CCMA Award-winner Jeff Johnson, who also produced.
Black says, “Jeff and I developed this one at the studio one winter, when we found ourselves thinking about summertime. We wanted to capture a perfect summer setting and the moments and feelings that go along with it. For those who hear it, I hope that ‘Laketown’ brings back great memories, with the promise that with every new summer, there are new memories ahead.”
“Laketown” marks the latest musical milestone for Black in a distinguished journey that has taken him around North America and across genres. Born in Langley, BC, Black grew up in Regina and Saskatoon, and broke through with Jet Black Stare’s 2009 Top 30 US Billboard Rock hit, “Ready to Roll”. The allure of his roots pulled him into country, where he scored – among other highlights – a Canadian Billboard Top 20 hit with 2014’s “Keepin’ On” and the #1 CBC Country/Sirius XM charting single “Good Times” in 2019, with years of Nashville living in between.
Now back in Langley and signed to Bristol Records in partnership with Nashville’s Copperline, Black has found his musical heart in the country genre. Besides embodying the spirit of lakeside adventures, “Laketown” is also a reflection of Black’s own carefree personality and adventurous soul. As his second single of 2021 for the artist, it will also be part of a new EP that will drop later this year.
In conjunction with the release of “Laketown”, Black has recently launched a weekly video series, “Side of the Road” www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6-e3IFegFw , where he shares his own life experiences and offers candid insights into topics like family, success, health, and self-empowerment.
“Laketown” is available now on all digital platforms. It will be released to Canadian country radio on June 7th.
