BRENT COBB DEBUTS NEW AMAZON ORIGINAL SONG “LOOSE STRINGS

“COUNTRY MUSIC FOR GROWN FOLKS TOUR” WITH KENDELL MARVEL CONFIRMED

NEW ALBUM KEEP ‘EM ON THEY TOES RECEIVES CRITICAL ACCLAIM

Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and musician Brent Cobb’s new Amazon Original song, “Loose Strings,” is out today exclusively on Amazon Music. Stream/purchase HERE.

Of the song, Cobb shares, “I wrote ‘Loose Strings’ after a good healthy disagreement with my better half. It’s hard to hold anything down with loose strings but if you keep working at it, they’ll eventually tighten up and it’s worth it. It’s different than a song I would normally put on an album, but it’s the raw emotion of a very real moment.”

The release continues a series of landmark years for Cobb, who will join forces with Kendell Marvel this spring for their “Country Music For Grown Folks Tour.” The acoustic dates kick off May 6 at Tulsa’s Cain’s Ballroom with additional stops at Kansas City’s Knuckleheads, Austin’s Antone’s Nightclub, Dallas’ The Kessler Theater, Asheville’s Grey Eagle (two shows, both sold out) and Nashville’s City Winery (two shows, one sold out) among others. Each show will feature three distinct sets: Marvel performing solo acoustic, Cobb performing solo acoustic and, finally, a special collaborative set with both performing songs they have written for other artists. Full health and safety protocols are available on each venue’s website. See below for complete itinerary.

The newly confirmed dates celebrate Cobb’s critically acclaimed new album, Keep ‘Em On They Toes, which was released this past fall on his own label, Ol’ Buddy Records, via Thirty Tigers (stream/purchase here). Produced by Brad Cook (Waxahatchie, Bon Iver, Hiss Golden Messenger), Keep ‘Em On They Toes was created after Cobb moved back to his home state of Georgia after several years between Nashville and Los Angeles—a decision that greatly influenced his songwriting. The ten tracks find Cobb with a new reflective mindset, focusing on how he views the world and expressing his own opinions, thoughts and feelings.

“Spinning yarn after psychedelic yarn, his front-porch musings are spacious and mellow, playful but pointed, and delivered with a distinctive drawl.”—Nashville Lifestyles

“a must-listen for fans of all genres”—NY Country Swag

“This album will undoubtedly win him more accolades because of its literate lyrics, catchy instrumental hooks, and friendly vocal delivery.”—PopMatters

“his most down-home record yet…If 2018’s nostalgic Providence Canyon was Cobb pining for the Peach State of his youth, Keep ‘Em on They Toes is him happy at home in the present.”—Rolling Stone

“Brent Cobb is keeping alive the tradition of the true singer/songwriter…calls to mind echoes of Dylan, or perhaps Woody Guthrie, even Merle Haggard”—Sounds Like Nashville

The release of Keep ‘Em On They Toes furthers a notable career for the Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and musician following 2018’s Providence Canyon and 2016’s Shine On Rainy Day. Of Cobb, NPR Music declares, “a troubadour whose classic country-rock songs are enhanced by his warm heart and keen eye,” while The Fader praises, “He has been able to straddle the mainstream country and Americana worlds…with a swampy, twangy sound that eagerly dips into funk and soul while still retaining a deeply loose, deeply southern quality” and Esquire proclaims, “A young master of country-funk.”

Cobb has earned nominations for Best Americana Album at the 60th GRAMMY Awards and Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2017 Americana Honors & Awards. He has also been featured on “CONAN,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and NPR Music’s “Tiny Desk Concert” series and has toured extensively across the world including numerous performances as part of Chris Stapleton’s “All-American Road Show.”
