NEWCOMER SYKAMORE RELEASES FIVE-SONG
‘CALIFORNIA KING,’ OUT NOW
“RECORD HIGH” OFFERS HEALING THROUGH MUSIC
Nashville, TN (Friday, April 3) — Nashville-based newcomer Sykamore’s five-song escape, California King, is available everywhere today on digital platforms. Produced by ACM Award-winning producer Michael Knox (Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson), California King is the first music to be released via Music Knox Records / Wheelhouse Records. Sykamore, who was the first to sign to HOME Team Publishing — a company founded by Rhett Akins and Thomas Rhett, in partnership with Roc Nation and Warner Chappell — co-wrote all five songs.
“Even before I started performing, music was always a means of escape for me,” says Sykamore. “I wanted to write a thank you to music for being a support system that was always there when I needed it.”
Drawing inspirations from George Strait to George Michael, Shania Twain to Lana Del Rey, Sykamore’s mixture of humor and heart is a fixture in her writing, which lives for sly wordplay and subtle winks. The dreamy “Record High” is an ode to the power of music itself, while the tongue-in-cheek “Local Singles” raises a glass to the unattached, and the stripped-down “California King” cuts a self-absorbed egotist down to size.
The songs showcase Sykamore’s boldly honest self-reflection. The mesmerizing “Where To Find Me” looks at the darkness that can consume us and the loved ones who can save us from it, while the piano-led “Out Of Luck” questions if we ever get a second chance at true love.
