Adyn Townes Shares New Single & Tour Dates

Category: music 381

Townes hits the road with dates throughout Atlantic Canada and Ontario this fall. 

Adyn Townes is done writing sad love songs, for a little while.

But no need to worry, Townes is heading out across Canada for his single release tour, bringing with him a brand new, exciting collection of music.

The new single, Sad Songs (released Sept. 15, 2017), is indicative of what to expect on the rest of the upcoming album, set for a spring 2018 release. After performing professionally for over 10 years under his given name (Andy Brown), Townes has abandoned the melancholy singer/songwriter style that he had previously become known for. Instead, he has swapped the acoustic guitar for a more energetic electric sound, differentiating himself with ‘pop melodies set to alternative rock’ – John MacPhee (Paper Lions). 

Sad Songs is one of the most ‘true to me’ songs I’ve ever written,” says Townes. “I’ve written personal songs before, but they’ve focused on the past instead of the present. Sad Songs embodies where I’m at now and highlights a very real and honest change in the way I approach songwriting.” 

The highly anticipated debut album was produced by Colin Buchanan (Paper Lions, Sorrey) at Hill Sound Studio in Charlottetown, PEI. Demos were taken with Buchanan when he was an invited guest to ‘Mix With The Masters’ in France, working directly on the tracks with multiple Grammy nominated producer Greg Wells (Adele, Katy Perry, OneRepublic). 

Townes has blinders on. Focused on the future, he’s hitting the ground running.
