Announces “Southern Ways” As Debut Texas Radio Single
(Houston, Texas) — Ronnie Dean Tinsley, frontman of Houston’s industrial rock band The Hectic, is branching out and releasing his Southern Country debut, RENEGADE, on Friday, March 25, 2016. Produced entirely by Tinsley at Sound Arts in Houston, the first single from the album, “Southern Ways,” hits Texas radio onFebruary 9, 2016 under the direction of David Gilligan Promotions; Bill Wence Promotions is leading the Americana campaign beginning on February 22, 2016. A CD release party is schedule for Saturday,March 26, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. at The Hawg Stop (11335 Sheldon Road, Houston 77044). RENEGADE will be available on iTunes, Amazon and other major digital retailers and on Tinsley‘s website through INgrooves Music Group and indieExtreme; pre-sale orders are effective at iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
“I’m really proud of this record and think it deserves to be added to your permanent collection of faves,” Tinsley said. “It’s a little edgy so be prepared for something different if you’re a fan of today’s modern country. This collection is more for those who appreciate music that is from the heart, has some true storytelling, and is southern fried like mama used to make it. If you like your country a little on the hard side then I’m sure you’ll dig it. There’s somethin’ on here for everybody. Crack open a cold one and get ya some.”
A vast collection that crosses genres and boundaries, the roadhouse blues and dark tales combine with country ballads and grungy riff rock to create this Outlaw Country/Americana debut. Flavored with a touch of everything a country rock fan could ask for, RENEGADE is a
look at being a product of the south and all that goes with it, as evidenced by “Southern Ways,” the first radio single.
Kicking off with “Must Be Nice,” a song born from the popular snarky phrase, this tongue-in-cheek delivery targets the working class and announces Tinsley‘s presence. The album also takes on families in the touching “Rowdy Ass Family” while “Nashville Tonight“ is a biographic song about Tinsley‘s father and his musical mishaps. The more alt-rock songs, like “Renegade,” the cinematic “I Ain’t Got No Halo,” and the road trip tune, “San Antonio,” bend the norms of country music while maintaining universal themes and dark dramatic moments of outlaw country swagger.
Bringing an “out of the box” concept to the musical landscape,Tinsley‘s RENEGADE is an endeavor that will feature live shows to define his role in Outlaw Country/Americana. Looking to artists like Shooter Jennings, Jamey Johnson, Aaron Lewis and Hank Williams III, Tinsley aims to travel down a newly worn path of the modern outlaw movement with alt-rock vocals and gritty southern arrangements that are all his own.
