Take A Trip With The “Jonesin’” Visualizer Available Here
BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records singer/songwriter Elvie Shane, champion of the next blue-collar generation with “backwoods growl and heartland rock sound” (Billboard), drops the soulful anthem “Jonesin’,” available to listen here. With chills-evoking vocals and a driving bassline, the track finds Shane with a hell too hot and a heaven too high, unsatisfied by a life spent stagnant in the same rhythm. Written by Shane, Oscar Charles, Ryan Tyndall and Jeremy Spillman and produced by Oscar Charles, “Jonesin’” bears the passion of those born to chase the fire, those who burn for taking life by the scruff of its neck.
“”Jonesin’” is all about our vices and failures in the pursuit of satisfaction and happiness,” said Shane. “ It came with the realization that you could have everything you’ve ever dreamed of and still be left feeling empty at times. That’s just life. But that void can be a beautiful thing when used as fuel. It can piss you off enough to quit the bad habits or fire you up enough to chase the seemingly unattainable.”
“Jonesin’” follows up Shane’s recently released tracks “Baptized” and “Forgotten Man,” where “Baptized” shows how he “steps outside the bounds of traditional country music to explore his gospel side” as his “raw grit propels through the lyrics” (Country Now). “Forgotten Man” received critical praise from Rolling Stone, citing how he “expertly sums up what it means to be blue-collar in the 21st century in this defiant, angry country single that would do Merle Haggard proud.”
Shane has kept busy this summer on the road, with headline shows and appearances at CMA Fest, Country Fest and more, as well as joining select dates with The Cadillac Three. He’s set to perform in Watertown, SD tonight, and Saturday in Wayne, NE as well as other select dates this fall opening for Kameron Marlowe. He also has stops in Rock Springs, WY, Salt Lake City, UT, Denver, CO and Colorado Springs, CO next week.
