6Arrows Media releases the first single from Logan Staats, "Vampire".
We knew 6Arrows was onto something when Logan Staats stole the show during their inaugural #6AMSessions livestreamed concert in late 2014. There's something immediate about his music, voice, and songwriting that just pulls you in.
Sure enough, the Six Nations-based Indigenous media company quickly signed the Ghost Town Orchestra frontman, and they plan to release his debut solo album on June 21, 2015. While we've yet to hear more details, today we got a first taste of what to expect musically. And it's beautiful.
"Vampires" is a simple acoustic song that brings Staats' honeyed vocal rasp to the fore, while recounting a mournful lament for lost love and the vampires and werewolves that haunt his hometown and memory. Aching and soulful, this is a must listen.
Now if only they'd upload it to SoundCloud and social media so we (and you) could share it around.
