The Rockabilly Artist Debuts Nashville Recorded “Cry You A River”
Baltimore native and rockabilly artist Josh Christina released single “Cry You A River” to radio stations nationwide today. It’s the first single off his new album, “Good Old Love”, which released late last month.
“I really wanted my debut single to bridge the gap between modern music and rockabilly,” said Christina. “We wanted the song to be Jerry Lee Lewis meets Stevie Ray Vaughan, and sat down to write it with that mindset. We wanted it to appeal to a broad audience, and I think we achieved that.”
“Cry You A River” was co-written by Christina and veteran songwriter James Dean Hicks. The single – along with the entire “Good Old Love” project – was recorded in Nashville and produced by Kent Wells (Dolly Parton).
“I couldn’t have landed in better hands. From the start, Kent insisted on embracing my vintage rockabilly sound. From recording all the instruments at once, to adding upright bass and horns… I’m so proud of how this album turned out. This album is me.”
“Cry You A River”, as well as the rest of “Good Old Love”, can be found on iTunes and CDBaby.
