Los Angeles, CA (November 17th, 2017) – Following the summer release of his single and music video “Ain’t Gonna Name Names,” critically acclaimed American roots artist, The Reverend Shawn Amos presents the second song from his upcoming album, The Reverend Shawn Amos Breaks It Down. “2017” is now available on iTunes, Spotify and all digital music sellers via Amos’ own Put Together Music imprint (via distributor AWAL). With a string section reminiscent of B.B. King’s “The Thrill Is Gone“ and Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On, “2017” is a timely commentary on our divided discourse — and a heartfelt plea to listen to our better angels.
The Rev spent the week at famed Royal Studio and Clayborn Temple recording new material with the legendary Hi Rhythm section. Look for a new album announcement soon.
Yahoo Music has debuted the music video for The Rev's new single, "Ain't Gonna Name Names." Writes senior editor, Wendy Geller:
"The Reverend Shawn Amos has plenty of experience in the music world — not only is he a lauded bluesman and singer-songwriter who’s released five full-length studio albums, he’s also spent time working with A-list talent as a record label executive, and he’s additionally a longtime Yahoo Music contributor/music expert as well."
