Radio Reacting to New Single.

NEW YORK, NY, October 24, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Sha-La Music announces the release of the new single Day of Reckoning (feat. Tony Trischka) by US Roots Rocker DownTown Mystic. The single will be digitally released on November 3 and distributed worldwide via The Orchard/Sony Music. Day of Reckoning dropped at Radio on October 12 and is already being played on over 40 stations around the world via Stephen’s Indie Picks from veteran promo man Stephen Foster.

The Day of Reckoning single contains 2 tracks, the Radio Edit version and the solemn acoustic track When The Angels Sing. Both tracks are from DownTown Mystic’s highly successful album, AmeriKarma, released earlier this year. The single was created for the radio release by editing the intro track that appears only on the CD with the album track. The initial reaction from Radio has been the best yet for a DownTown Mystic release.

Day of Reckoning features banjo virtuoso Tony Trischka, one of the preeminent banjo players in the world, along with the ace rhythm section of Steve Holley (Paul McCartney, Elton John) on drums and Paul Page (Ian Hunter, Dion) on bass. The song was co-written by the ever-talented Jay Friedman, from bluegrass/americana band Blue Plate Special. Jay also adds harmony vocals on the track, having appeared as one of The Oohlets singing the distinctive “oohs” on DTM’s previous single Live.

Day of Reckoning takes a tongue-in-cheek look at getting ready for Judgement Day. DownTown Mystic writer/producer Robert Allen comments, “I felt that Day of Reckoning was the centerpiece track on AmeriKarma because the album was looking at what we were doing and feeling during the Covid pandemic. I think many of us were looking at our lives in ways we probably hadn’t done before. With all the uncertainty and people dying from the pandemic, it felt like Judgement Day was just around the corner.”

Along with success at Radio, having been played on over 5000 stations in 44 countries, DownTown Mystic has become one of the top sync-licensed indie artists in the world with over 240 TV shows and films to his credit. The artist will have a song in the upcoming movie Everything’s Going to Be Great starring Bryan Cranston and Allison Janney. On another business front, DownTown Mystic is teaming up with “The Connector” Chris Keaton to represent the DownTown Mystic RnR Publishing Catalog in Nashville.

“There is just something about americana and the way Downtown Mystic delivers his singles that captures our attention and makes it incredibly difficult to break away.” Modern Neon Media

“With his warm vocals and jaunty instrumentals backing him, Allen produces the sort of country/Americana atmosphere that we’ll be turning to again and again.” Medium

“a band of great breadth, one with the ability to kick your teeth in with hardnosed rock n’ roll tendencies, while also able to explore heartfelt lyrical and musical earnestness.” JamSphere Magazine
