Friday Awesomeness: Free Track from The Rescues

Songwriter powerhouse quartet The Rescues are prepping fans for their sophomore release with a free download of the new single, “Arrow,” on

L.A. songwriter supergroup The Rescues has been in the studio recording, and I know I’m one of thousands anxiously awaiting their new effort Blah Blah Love and War.  After seeing them live at Charlotte’s most intimate little venue, The Evening Muse, in 2009, I became a huge fan.  Four extremely powerful vocalists whose voices blend together to send tingles up your spine easily made it one of my favorite performances of that year.  Their 2010 release, Let Loose the Horses, was a finely-crafted work of harmonies and lyrical wonderment that just reinforced that live experience.

In anticipation of their upcoming release, Kyler, Adrianne, Rob and Gabriel teamed up with American Songwriter to give away a free download of their new song “Arrow.”  It’s a gorgeous song and has me salivating to get my hands on the new album. It is definitely worthy of the Friday Awesomeness!


The Rescues are running a PledgeMusic campaign to record this new album and it’s not too late to contribute.  They’ve already reached their goal, but they still have some cool supporter packages available.  If you dig what you hear, think about chipping in!

Release Day: The Rescues

Tuesdays are my favorite weekday.  Why?  Quite simple.

Album release day.

Today is extra fabulous. Because The Rescues Let Loose the Horses is out. And, you lucky devils…“Break Me Out” is the free single of the week on iTunes.

For those not familiar with The Rescues, I’ll sum it up:  perfection.  Made up of Kyler England, Gabriel Mann, Rob Giles and Adrian Gonzalez, this California songwriter super group leaves everyone who hears them wanting more.  I was introduced to them about 18 months ago, and instantly fell in love with their soaring harmonies.  They came through Charlotte a few months after that and I got to catch their live performance.  Being in the Evening Muse that night was a soul-shaking experience for me.  I was in awe of their sheer vocal power, stage presence and songwriting.  Made it to my #3 live show of the year, topped only by Joshua James and Will Hoge’s return.

If you’re a “Grey’s Anatomy” fan, you’ve probably heard a song or two of theirs playing during some poignant scene or another.  If you haven’t heard them yet, go click around, take a listen.  Download the free single.  Then get the album.  You will not be disappointed.
