New US country trio Lockeland (Michael Boris, Kyndon Oakes and Mark Vikingstad), are set to release their sophomore single ‘Drive’, ahead of their UK appearances at The Long Road and Millport Festival this summer.
Penned by the band’s lead singer Kyndon Oakes, guitar player, Mark Vikingstad and Susie Brown (formerly of the JaneDear girls), and co-produced by Michael Boris and Sean Spence, the track is slated to impact country radio on Monday 8th July and will be available via all major digital retail and streaming outlets on Friday 30th August.
Revved by a four-on-the-floor groove, geared with driving guitars, shredding fiddle and shimmering steel, and steered by trademarked Lockeland’s signature harmonies, the storyline paints an image of a young love on board for an adventurous zero-to-one-hundred getaway.
The sophomore release follows the momentum of the group’s debut single, ‘Til The Cows Come Home’, which met with unprecedented, exponential success at country radio (charting in the top 40 on the MusicRow Country Breakout Chart).
The corresponding ‘Drive’ music video was shot in Lebanon, Tennessee and at Redneck Riviera in downtown Nashville; a worldwide release is anticipated in late July 2019
Mark and Michael come from different spectrums of the Empire State, while Kyndon hails from the “Land of Oz.” The trio met in Nashville to “lock the lands” and thus, Lockeland was formed. What brings these friends together is their love of life, humour and the mutual passion to create music that recalls pages from the past and captures memorable moments of the here and now.
Since the launch of the trio’s debut single, “Til The Cows Come Home” (March 2019), which landed in the Top 40 on the MusicRowCountry Breakout Chart, Lockeland has appeared on the CMA Spotlight Stage (CMA Fest 2019), opened for Big & Rich in Lebanon, Ohio and the Clay County Fair in Green Cove Springs, Florida, and is a NIMA nominee. The group is slated to embark on an international tour (canvasing England and Scotland) in September.
