SONG PREMIERE: Nashville Singer/Songwriter Guthrie Brown Nails Pop Rock Jewel With “Keeping On”

Nashville-based singer/songwriter Guthrie Brown is set to release his forthcoming EP, Keeping On, this Friday, August 31. Produced by multi-Grammy Award-winner Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones, Tom Waits, Niall Horan), the five tracks on Keeping On expand Brown’s Americana-leaning sound into new territories of pop and soul.

The BMG-signed songwriter’s new music has been compared to that of Brett Dennen and Jason Mraz, while his full-band live shows draw to mind something as strong and pure as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Brown has been playing guitar and writing songs since he was six-years-old, and Keeping On is his fourth EP by the young age of twenty-four. It follows his Natural EP, also produced by King, of which the standout single “Wild Child” recently surpassed 500,000 streams on Spotify. Now 24 years old, Guthrie moved to Nashville from Montana at the young age of 17 and has since released three EPs. Following his most recent, Natural, he toured extensively with artists such as Jonny Lang, Willie Nelson, Robert Randolf, and Bears Den.

Guthrie Brown a Nashville transplant by way of “old Montana” began playing the guitar at age six. By the age of seventeen, he journeyed to Nashville to pursue the dream of being a professional songwriter, recording & performing artist. After settling in Music City, he recorded and produced his first self-titled EP, which got the attention of Nashville’s premiere independent radio station, WRLT Lightning 100. Capitalizing on the initial success of his debut EP, Guthrie recorded and released his second EP Spirit of the Elk with producer Stuart Mathis (The Wallflowers, Lucinda Williams). Following his second release, he recruited his longtime friends and musicians John Ogelby (drums), Will Honaker (bass, keys) and John McNally (guitar) to join the band.

Glide is very proud to premiere  Brown’s “Keeping On,”an in the pocketgem that recalls the boundary less formulas of John Mayer, Ben Harper and U2. Guthrie displays a knack for five star songwriting, like the great radio stars of the 70’s and 80’s, provides an unmistakable first impression and a nod to nostalgia.
