Shaboozey releases his latest single “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” via EMPIRE.  The track serves as the fourth single off the sonic outlaw’s highly anticipated album Where I’ve Been, isn’t Where I’m Going out May 31st.

“A Bar Song (Tipsy)” beautifully embodies the values synonymous with the genre, filled with liquor, parties, and breaking out of the routine 9-to-5. Written by Shaboozey, the track builds on the Virginia native’s devotion to country music as he sets his smooth vocals to an upbeat clap tempo and includes crowd-filled backup vocals, well-placed fiddle riffs, and a folksy acoustic guitar.

The Storm Windows are two veteran musicians who have regrouped to form a reimagined sound, with two full-length albums — debut self-titled album (February 2022) and Second Album (March 2023) — they reflected on their recent live performances and decided to take an acoustic-based approach to this new project. “We think of it as full-on Americana as you can get,” Rob says. “With six new original compositions: an outlaw song, a song of nostalgia, one of lost-love, a folk-hero tribute, another reflecting on life and a bonus 50s-style rocker, all in that order.”
