Song 9: Rich Aucoin – Release
Artist: Rich Aucoin
Song: Release (I’m not sure if this the actual name or just a placeholder?)
Today I’m excited to share my first BRAND NEW song as part of this project. Not even officially released yet this song by Rich is set to come out on Friday the 12th. After listening to it a number of times I can say confidently that I quite like it. One of my favourite things about much of Rich Aucoin’s music for a long time now has been the singalong nature. Going to a live show of his is ALWAYS a ton of fun and a total party. Part of what makes it so fun is how quickly people can learn his music and join the experience. When I first heard this song I kept waiting for the vocals to come in and then eventually realized they weren’t coming. Despite it being a vocal-less song it still really impressed me and is a ton of fun. I also think he’s still managed to produce a track that will create that same energy in a live performance that brings people ‘into it’. I’ll find out soon enough though since I just bought my ticket to see him in February on the 23rd at Mills Hardware here in Hamilton. Tickets for a Toronto show go on sale in a few days which I’ll likely go to as well! Anyways, since the song hasn’t officially been released yet there, unfortunately, isn’t any other means to listen to it except by following the link below.
365 New Tunes is a project inspired by a tweet from the band Stars on December 31st, 2017 encouraging people to listen to a new song every day of the next year.
