VANGUARD/SUGAR HILL/NINE NORTH duo JOEY + RORY have released the video for their new single, "Play The Song." The song "pokes a little fun at the record industry's tendency to want to tweak and change what already works so well."
You might even recognize a few familiar industry faces that make cameos, like NINE NORTH President LARRY PAREIGIS, VP/Promo/Marketing TOM MORAN and S1 SONGS/NASHVILLE VP/GM PAT FINCH.
RORY said: "The video isn't much of a stretch from our own personal experience in the music industry. JOEY had meetings like this as a solo artist and I, as a songwriter have often had the 'pleasure' of songs being picked apart by music row executives. It's amazing the hoops you have to jump through sometimes to get your music heard and I wrote the song out of those frustrations as well as similar experiences of folks in town who want to make it in the business but remain authentic."
JOEY added: "Everyone has an opinion about what will and won't work, but one thing we have learned along the way is to be true to who you are, present honest music and let the fans decide."
