Cincinnati’s Queen City Silver Stars have written a brand new single entitled “Down The Road,” which is to be released this Friday!
Recorded in the new QCSS studio, aka: “The Shanty,” this will be their first track done solely for streaming services and online purchase only, and can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Bandcamp, etc.
“Down The Road” is a bouncy, upbeat song that includes Ghanaian Highlife style guitar, Caribbean rhythms in the verses while mixing in a bit of rock ‘n roll in the chorus. Lyrically it is an ode to a four-legged friend of QCSS songwriter, Mark Becknell, who was inspired by the backstory and quick sprinting spirit of his black lab, Zep. Mark saw this loose dog running down his street in Madisonville, OH one sunny morning. Despite several attempts to reunite him with his previous owners with the help of microchip technology, the pup was destined to become part of his family and this song is a tribute to his origins and his fast running, free-wheeling adventures.
