It is November 24th 2013 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
Just over two years ago the band earning this week's 'Song of the Week' formed. Yet, in that short of time, the three young men behind the band have managed to build an extraordinary name for themselves.
Halfway To Hollywood, who reside in Vancouver, British Columbia, began in mid 2011. And, their pop/rock/powerpop sound has been earning them credit ever since, landing them [over] six thousand 'likes' on Facebook and [more than] eighty thousand views on their Youtube Channel.
Grant Walker (vocals / guitar), Brenden White (bass / backing vocals) and Roman Zugarazo (drums) released their first EP, complete with six songs, in mid 2011. The EP, which was titled Speechless (Deluxe Version), definitely hit home with fans, causing their fan base to take off.
Halfway To Hollywood certainly rang in 2013 on a high note, releasing their first single off their latest EP on January 2nd 2013. And, that single, which is called Green Lights, is taking home this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
Green Lights can be found on their newest release, an EP titled Party Like It's Prom Night. Party Like It's Prom Night was released to the band's iTunes page on March 1st 2013 and, well, each of the six songs found on the EP has grabbed their fans' attention.
The EP alone has been getting nothing but superb reviews, earning kind words such as, "This EP has something for everyone. I highly recommend buying this EP!", or, "This new EP is just another example of how talented these guys are!".
"Party Like It's Prom Night was met with strong sales that pushed it to number 17 on iTunes' Canadian pop chart within just a few hours. It was produced by 604 Records/Union Entertainment Group/Simkin Artist Management producer Danny Craig (Default, Fighting For Ithaca, One Bad Son) and had already been generating a buzz, both locally and abroad, with the lead single, Green Lights, selling over a thousand copies before its release."
So, it is pretty fair to say this band has earned this week's 'Song of the Week' spot with their song Green Lights. Every song I have heard from these guys has shown their immense talent and unique sound, both of which will truly take them far.
"Their message is simple, yet powerful: believe in your dreams, stay positive and great things will happen!"
