CMT premieres Kiefer Sutherland’s Shirley Jean video

June 21, 2017

Kiefer Sutherland’s cinematic “Shirley Jean” video, which tells the story of a man’s last night on death row, taking the form of a goodbye letter to a woman he once loved, premieres on CMT channels and platforms June 21.  You can check out the video here: “It was the one song on the album that obviously was not a very personal story from my own life,” Sutherland tells Rolling Stone Country. “I had a huge respect for Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard. These guys wrote about the dirtier side of life and the tougher aspects of life. Cash realized he wasn’t a ‘bad guy,’ and that maybe some of these people in prison aren’t ‘bad guys.’ He gave them a kind of dignity that I really respected. He created an avenue of forgiveness that I don’t think was as available at that time. I love the way he did that. So I really wanted to write a song about that.” Sutherland is currently in Europe playing sold out shows after a nationwide U.S. tour [Read More]

Citizen Soldier continues to release powerful music, check out their new song Let It Burn

June 21, 2017

Earlier this month we shared a great song from Citizen Soldier which dealt with the struggle of mental illness. The alternative rock band has released another powerful track, Let It Burn. The song is the new single off their EP Caroline, and it could be the song that helps someone who is contemplating suicide.     The lyrics grab a hold of you and embraces the listener and fills them with a light of hope. The vocals carry such raw emotion as they plead with the listener to Let it Burn, and to feel the release of all those things that haunt them and created the sense of despair. It is empowering, uplifting and will be a true lifeline for some. Please take a listen and share the song with others who may need to  hear the message it brings. Citizen Soldier continues to impress us with their meaningful music. In a world where so many are focused on themselves, it is quite refreshing to hear a band that delivers emotionally driven lyrics carrying messages of [Read More]

June 16, 2017

Music is magical and powerful. Here at Music Junkie Press, we are strong believers that music can help, heal, inspire, comfort, change and do so much more. Whether is a celebratory song, release of angst and pressure, comfort someone, or maybe be the lifeline they need to pull themselves from a dark time in their lives. Northern Ghost shares the Power of Music with their new single. Check out A Message From Northern Ghost. (Cleveland, OH) No matter what anyone goes through, there is a song that fits perfectly to any situation you are in, or any emotion you are feeling. The songs that make your good mood better; the ones that spark a memory of a loved one; or arguably most important; the music that is there when you feel like no one else is.     Northern Ghost knows how powerful music can be and makes it evident in their new single, “Purge.” Depression is something that affects so many, but can sometimes be swept under the rug and never talked about again. Touching on this sensitive topic, Vocalist Tony McVaney shared the message behind the song, [Read More]
