Maggie Rose To Release Anthemic New EP ‘Dreams > Dollars’ (May 19)

 

“Body On Fire” debuted via Spotify’s New Music Friday: spoti.fi/2p4hbpL

Check out a teaser here: bit.ly/2pesnMc

Praised as “what’s next in Nashville” by NPR, Maggie Rose will release her new EP ‘Dreams > Dollars’ on May 19. Fueled by love and loss and her own personal experiences with the two, Maggie penned and co-produced the five-song EP, showcasing her evolution into “one of country’s rising storytellers” (Washington Post).

In “Body On Fire” (available now via Spotify pre-order), the provocative lead-off single, Maggie’s sultry vocals set free the yearning urgency of requited love. A tender guitar intro builds to the lust-filled crescendo, “you don’t even need to try, you just set my body on fire!” It hits right in the solar plexus and you wait for it to happen again and again. Her explosive range empowers listeners to embrace their bodies and sexuality. Listen via Spotify here: spoti.fi/2p4hbpL

The remaining tracks on ‘Dreams > Dollars’ play as an exuberant, anthemic collection that delivers poignant clarity through her relatable stories of love, success and struggle. The EP’s first track, “Too Many Love Songs,” creates a not-so-picturesque image of the aftermath of a relationship. With references to Bob Dylan and Patsy Cline, the song is an anthem to the brokenhearted and quickly becomes a safe haven from unavoidable love songs. Title track “More Dreams Than Dollars” “exudes both confidence and vulnerability… [weaving the] tale of hope” (Rolling Stone Country) familiar to all struggling dreamers, while “I Won’t” sketches a voyeuristic take on love, pinpointing the dysfunction that arises from passion. The EP caps with “We’ll Grow Out Of It,” where Maggie capitalizes on a universally relatable theme post-2016 — trying to find your place in the world while watching it seemingly fall off the hinges.

“This project was simply the most natural, relevant next step for me. I’m so inspired by what I am most passionate about: the music I made and the people I love,” says Maggie. “I’ve never been more comfortable in my own skin than I am now, and I think this EP showcases that.”

Maggie is off to an amazing start in 2017. In addition to her 13-date run on Martina McBride’s CMT Next Women of Country Tour, she has landed her biggest direct-support dates yet. She’ll be heading out on the road with Hunter Hayes this Spring and will cap her Summer as direct-support on Tim McGraw & Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul tour. Maggie joins CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Brothers Osborne, GRAMMY-winning songwriter Lori McKenna, Margo Price and more as support.

“I’ve decided that it’s time to get everybody dancing again! It’s time to start celebrating life, no matter how much BS we keep enduring in the world. I want to throw big dance parties and get us all to know one another and make new friends.  John (Rich) and I had such a huge hit and success with our dance remix of “Save a Horse,” I was inspired to try some of the Electro Shine sounds to my favorite new B&R hits, “Born Again” and “Party Like Cowboyz.” Now lets crank up the tunes and dance. It’s a great way to meet girls,” says Big Kenny.

Big KennyFor those passionate “out of the box” EDM, country and hick-hop music lovers, ELECTRO SHINE has more for your listening pleasure.  ELECTRO SHINE’s debut EP, The Hits Vol. 1, that features a love of “Muzik Without Prejudice,” the mariachi inspired and pop infused “Electro Country Shine,” the feel good dance anthem “Hope Chant,” electronic country and rap anthem “Star,” and three versions of “Dance Upon The Solid Ground,” the up-tempo jam ingrained with twangy fiddle, banjo and electronic melodies is also available at all digital retail outlets.

“Electro Shine is going to be a great way to introduce country to the Electronic Dance world, which is so huge now. And a great way to introduce the Electronic Dance World to Big & Rich and Electro Shine,” adds Big Kenny.

In addition to the recordings, soon to be announced will be the ELECTRO SHINE touring show.  The Vegas-style show under a big top tent will include singers, musicians, rappers, dancers, badass beats, aerialists, lights, lasers, psychedelic great visuals, and even little blue flying winged cherubs!  An experience that could be best described as a musical circus, hosted by Big Kenny, where a collision of EDM, Americana, Country, Reggae, Rock,  Pop, and Hip-Hop will create the vibe and party atmosphere that will keep everyone inspired and on the dance floor.
