KAMERON MARLOWE RELEASES NEW TAKE ON “GIVING YOU UP” AND COVER OF “FOLSOM PRISON BLUES” FOR SPOTIFY SINGLES
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (For immediate release) – Columbia Nashville breakout rising star and 2021 Spotify Hot Country Artist to Watch Kameron Marlowe has released his inaugural Spotify Singles recording. Listen here.
Recorded in Nashville, Side A is a stripped-down, piano-driven rework of his self-penned debut release and heartbreak anthem, “Giving You Up.” Side B is an impassioned, bluesy cover of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues,” showing off Marlowe’s arena-ready powerhouse vocals, while putting a twist on the classic tune.
“I chose to cover ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ because Johnny Cash is one of my all-time heroes. To me, he is the Godfather of country music, and I have always had nothing but respect for how his sound and songwriting have influenced so many artists, myself included,” said Marlowe. “And I decided to re-work ‘Giving You Up’ because I wanted to try something new. That song will always hold a special place in my heart, and it’s fun for me to try different styles every once in a while.”
