Teams Up With WME, Straight 8, Kobalt Music and More
CMA Fest Performances Precede National Tour — Initial List of Dates Below
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 26, 2017) — Lewis Brice debuts his first nationally-distributed EP on July 14. The EP’s six original songs are all co-written and co-produced by Lewis alongside Brian Bunn (Thomas Rhett, Third Day), Dan Frizell (LOCASH, Lee Brice, Chris Janson), and Ben Simonetti (Zac Brown Band, Jana Kramer, Blake Shelton) with brother and executive producer Lee at the project’s helm.
The new EP, released on Pump House Music through a venture with Straight 8 Entertainment and Kobalt Music Recordings, is available for preorder today and can be found at listeners’ digital retailer of choice, with lead single ‘Best Ex Ever’ available on all streaming destinations. A seven-week promotional campaign that will push the cutting edge of social media & streaming technology features weekly behind the music-style interviews with Lewis as well as intimate, stripped-down acoustic versions of each song leading up to the street date. The EP is currently available for preorder now HERE and at lewisbrice.com.
“I’ve been writing, playing, and working on these songs for the last few years and am very proud to be releasing them in July,” says Lewis. “I lean a little more rock, but my roots have always been country, so listeners can expect to get a solid blend of both. I couldn’t ask for a better team to start my next chapter with!”
The team assembled behind Lewis and the upcoming release include WME’s Risha Rodgers (booking), BMI, Straight 8 Entertainment’s Lee Willard (manager) and Norman Jacob, promotions veteran EJ Barnas (radio promotion), Shaun Melby of Wiatr & Associates (business management) and Zach Farnum of 117 Entertainment Group (publicity).
