NASHVILLE, TN. / LONDON, UK. – (24th Feb, 2021) – Sony/Columbia Nashville breakout artist Kameron Marlowe has shared his debut US country radio single “Sober as a Drunk,” taken from his self-titled EP, out now. To celebrate, Marlowe released a live performance video of the “bar room heartbroken stomper” (MusicRow).
The track follows his breakthrough hit “Giving You Up,” which has over 30 million streams on Spotify, and 17 million views for the official music video.
ABOUT KAMERON MARLOWE:
Born in the small town of Kannapolis, North Carolina, Kameron sold car parts at General Motors for a living before he got a call that changed his life forever. A recruiter from NBC’s The Voice found performance videos of Marlowe on YouTube and reached out with an offer to take him straight to the series’ live auditions. The offer was too good to pass up.
While he didn’t win, Marlowe said “The Voice” is responsible for getting him to Nashville. Some of his cast-mates were songwriters from Music City. He had dabbled in songwriting at home, but the concept of doing it professionally was foreign. When his new friends explained the collaborative nature of Nashville’s creative community, everything clicked into place.
“I knew that was just exactly where I wanted to be career-wise,” Marlowe said. “But I just didn’t understand how to do it.”
Influenced by artists ranging from Brooks & Dunn and George Strait to Travis Tritt and Ray Charles, Marlowe’s sound is a culmination of his life-long love of country music. His first memories include riding around in his grandpa’s truck listening to Garth Brooks and Darius Rucker. But he didn’t realise he could sing until he was a teenager. Marlowe played snare drum in his high school’s marching band for two years before he decided the experience wasn’t for him. A praise and worship leader who found joy in performing, Marlowe approached the music teacher about starting an unstructured class he dubbed “Rock Band.” Ten students formed two five-piece bands. They learned 10-to-20 cover songs a year and then performed them in a small club.
“I want to sell out a stadium just one time,” Marlowe said. “It’s always been a dream of mine. I never thought in a million years I could do this for a job. I thought I would move here for 10 years and then go back home and sell car parts, but it’s happening!”
