Briston Maroney releases the official music video for his current single “Oregon”. Directed by longtime visual collaborator Joey Brodnax, the video perfectly complements the standout track, which was released as half of a two-sided single on October 14. Both tracks are out now via Canvasback Music/Atlantic Records (buy/stream here).
“Oregon”, as well as accompanying track “Harvard,” received praise upon release, including from Staged Haze, who hailed it as, “a love song straight out of a coming-of-age movie. Boastful and full of energy, but forlorn at the same time… a type of tempo that will give you strength and determination to live and love boldly while maybe bringing a few others along for the ride.”
Last month, Maroney shared a live acoustic video of his previous single “Paradise” (watch here), a song that was quickly hailed by Consequence of Sound as a “rousing pop-rock track [that] envisions a life free of mundanities… Maroney hollers on the shiny chorus,”and has been streamed over 2.5 million times since its mid-July release.
Also directed by Joey Brodnax, that video was filmed at Brooklyn Bowl Nashville – the site of Maroney’s upcoming Paradise Fest, set for November 3rd + 4th. The 2-day music festival was conceived and curated by Maroney, and will be presented in collaboration with Nashville radio station Lightning 100 and record store Grimey’s, along with a portion of proceeds benefiting local nonprofits The Nashville Food Project and Oasis Center.
Friday night, November 4th has officially sold out, but remaining tickets for night one can be found on sale here.
Maroney will headline both nights, sharing the stage with his hand-selected lineup of peers, including Indigo DeSouza, The Greeting Committee, Sunflower Bean, Annie DiRusso, Cece Coakley, and Canvasback labelmates MICHELLE. (Fans who purchase select VIP packages will have the opportunity to share a bowling lane with Maroney himself – learn more here).
Maroney recently wrapped his headline ‘All Aboard’ North American fall tour, which included stops in cities including Toronto, Atlanta, and Charleston, as well as appearances at Delaware’s Firefly Festival and Southern California’s Ohana Music Festival. Over the summer, he played standout sets to crowds at Bonnaroo and Outside Lands, shortly after serving as support on select dates of 2022 tours for both Jack White and Rainbow Kitten Surprise.
Earlier this year, Maroney releasedSunflower: Deluxe, an extended version of his 2021 full-length debut Sunflower. That project included new tracks such as “The Kitchen” – heralded by V Magazine as “infectious” – and reworks of original album tracks including “Bottle Rocket,” featuring Manchester Orchestra, and “Cinnamon,” featuring alt-pop singer-songwriter Genevieve Stokes.
