SPOTLIGHT BAND: Tuk Smith and The Restless Hearts release new debut single, What Kinda Love

Allow me to introduce you to what may become your favorite new band for 2020! Tuk Smith and The Restless Hearts. We have been longtime fans of Atlanta rock band, The Biters and we are ecstatic with Tuk’s solo debut. He is ready to keep the rock n roll torch burning strong. The band will have a wild year as they will be opening for the highly anticipated tour of the year, Mötley Crüe Stadium Tour which will also feature Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett.

Debut Single

Today they released their debut single, What Kinda Love and we are hooked on it! Produced by the legendary Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Eric Clapton, My Chemical Romance) explains 

“People that really like honest-to-god Rock and Roll – this is the kind of stuff they’ll love.  If you are a Tom Petty fan or a Bruce Springsteen fan, if you like really great old-fashioned American Rock and Roll then I believe you’ll like Tuk’s music because it’s cut from that same cloth.  It’s original and it is it’s own thing, I think he’s the real deal!”


“What Kinda Love,” is an instantly infectious anthem that unifies Tuk’s love of rock, punk and glam into a unique amalgam of what’s missing from today’s musical landscape. “What Kinda Love” has Joan-Jett-meets-John Mellencamp grandeur and is part of a collection of songs that are a testament to the fact that you don’t need to follow trends in order to create art that fosters a connection with your audience. 


Tuk produced and wrote the video, of which he explains,

“I think when people first hear the song they might not get its meaning right away. I wanted to create a narrative in the video that helped complement the lyrics. Having full creative vision as an artist is as rewarding as it is daunting. If something doesn’t pan out right there is no one to blame but yourself, but it’s the best feeling when your vision becomes reality. I had so many close friends and family act, be extras, and work on videos with me. I’m so lucky to have such a pool of talent and characters to pull from.”
