New year, new music! We are so happy to see so much new music from Mile of Music alumni as we settle into 2021. Here’s your roundup of new music (we owed you one from January)!
Carter Hulsey – Miles 4-6
Looks like we’ll be hearing a lot of new music from Carter Hulsey this year, which is a very good thing! His first release of 2021 is “Way Too Long Now” (before you get upset, that’s the name of the song…not our opinion…sheesh!) and Hulsey’s next record, Start Staying, will follow soon with a May release.
The Traveling Suitcase (Live) – Miles 1-3, 5
Yes that’s right…The Traveling Suitcase! On New Year’s Eve leading into 2021, TTS announced they’d be kicking off the new year by dropping a live music video for their song “Rhetoric.” And staying true to local, the video was filmed in 2017 at Jersey Street Music Festival in Horicon.
DREAMERS – Mile 4
Dreamers recently released a new single & music video for “Still Not Dead,” along with American Teeth and Wes Period. The catchy tune lives up to Dreamers’ self-described cosmic rock genre! DREAMERS also released another single, “True Crime (Stripped)”, at the end of January.
Andrew Leahey – Miles 5-7
On top of doing a weekly livestream (he’s now surpassed 40!), Andrew Leahey released a new video for “Until There’s Nothing But Air.” It’s a neat stop-motion video that accompanies a great song!
Bartees Strange (Mile 7) on Late Night with Seth Meyers
If you missed Bartees Strange making his late-night TV debut, we’ve got you covered! The Mile 7 alum was the featured musical guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Bartees performed “Boomer” from his album Live Forever.
Zane Carney – Mile 7
If you love jazz, you’ll want to give this one a listen (but you should no matter what!) Zane Carney, the versatile multi-instrumentalist, recently released music as part of the Zane Carney Jazz Quartet. The quartet’s first released song is called “Brain Freeze.” Zane’s album with the Zane Carney Jazz Quartet, Alter Ego, is due at the end of April!
With nearly 1,000 alumni from the Festival, Rhythms & Brews and the Courtyard series, we do our best to keep up with everyone. Feel free to help us out – if you know a Mile artist that is coming out with new music in February (or anytime in 2021), give us a heads up!
