We are delighted to be premiering the brand new single “Stuck On You” from soulful country artist Shaun Samonini, ahead of its official release tomorrow.
Growing up, he was influenced by an eclectic collection of music. Heavily into Motown and soul music, his vocal stylings are borrowed from the likes of Donny Hathaway and Marvin Gaye. But his dad was always a big Country music fan, and Shaun fondly remembers long journeys listening to Lonestar and The Chicks (formerly The Dixie Chicks).
At 20, Shaun was picked up by a management label and found himself on tour as a featured artist with British soul singer, Lemar. Fast forward to 2019 and he was invited to audition for The Voice UK. Shaun wowed the judges, got 3 turns and chose Team Tom. He exited at The Battle stage and headed straight to the studio to write a Country music EP.
The new single Stuck On You leads, inspired by his relationship with his wife it captures the uplifting and happy feeling of summer that surrounded Shaun when he penned the track with co-writer and long-term friend Dwayne.
Recorded with a live band, Dwayne produced the track according to their shared vision, an acoustic feel with lots of warmth and a dash of pedal steel.
“Most importantly we wanted the lyrics to cut through. I’ve always said that above anything else my wife is my home. No matter where I am, what I’m doing, who I’m with – I always come back to her. Our house isn’t my home, she is. That’s the sentiment we wanted to get across with Stuck On You.”
