NYC-based pop artist-on-the-rise, Josey Greenwell, takes us back to his country roots with his new single “Cowboy” which premiered via CelebMix.
“Cowboy” comes off of Greenwell’s forthcoming full length album, City Games, slated to be released later this year. On the new single, he shares, “This is the track I’m most excited about for this entire forthcoming album. It represents such a revelation of so many things for me. Attitude, writing rhythms, authenticity – things I shied away from in the past. I co-wrote this with my new producer, Daneon, and we had a blast pulling a references from my previous Nashville writing days and lacing them with modern production. For me, it’s the most transportive song on the album and really takes me to the middle of a night out.”
Growing up in Kentucky, a passion for music led Greenwell to Nashville in pursuit of a career as a singer/songwriter. After years of honky-tonks and unfulfilled wishes, he set the guitar down ad turned to his next love, fitness, and made the move to the Big Apple. Now, as one of the city’s most prominent fitness instructors, his love for music and songwriting prevails as he steps back into his artistry rhythm and gears up to release his first full length album in over a decade. Fueled with city inspiration and slick pop production, the sound behind the upcoming record, City Games, is almost as surprising as Greenwell’s return.
