My Silent Bravery, a.k.a., Matthew Wade, officially premiered his latest single and video, “Drunk Off the Sun” on AXS yesterday, just as the height of the summer season gets underway and it is already trending in Brazil, Norway, Finland, and Sweeden. The video has already surpassed 400,000 views and reached #1 on youtube’s Brazil most popular page.
Following the premiere, the “Drunk Off the Sun” available for download on iTunes (http://smarturl.it/MSBSunEP) and all major retailers, beginning today Friday July 1st; included are four versions of the song: the original version; a Matthew Heyer remix featuring Maurico; Richard Fraioli’s “Chill Out” remix and an acoustic version of the tune. “Drunk Off the Sun is also featured on the United Airlines’ playlist, “The Hits List,” throughout the summer, at 35,000 feet altitude, globally.
Powered by a feel-good vibe, reggae pulse, and infectious melody, “Drunk Off the Sun” has all the makings of a summer anthem. With uplifting sing-along lyrics like, “Drunk off the sun/Soaking up the summer fun/Finally found a way to keep refilling our cups,” the tune and accompanying music video are overflowing with the positivity and inspiring tone of all of My Silent Bravery’s signature work.
“A silver lining runs through this record and a lot of my music,” explains the Worcester, Massachusetts-bred Matt Wade, adding “that’s intentional. When I go out to play shows, it’s not about me. It’s about the audience. That’s what I want listeners to walk away with. I hope they’ll feel more uplifted than when they came.”
Wade accomplished that mission throughout Breakthrough, which features an all-star array of producers including Grammy® Award-winner Mike Mangini (Joss Stone, David Byrne, Smash Mouth), Peter Zizzo (Avril Levine, Jennifer Lopez, Jason Mraz), and Anthony Resta (Elton John, Collective Soul, Guster). “A lot of time we look at the world like, ‘What’s in it for me?’ as opposed to, ‘what can I give back to it? That really changed for me,” says Wade.
My Silent Bravery is having a great 2016 as “Drunk Off the Sun” follows the viral success of his cover of Nelly’s smash hit, “Ride With Me,” which trended on YouTube this spring overseas. It’s another sign of his ever-growing fan base, which now has more than 100,000 social media followers reached 2.5 million YouTube views. The artist was also recently nominated for Best Pop Act at the Worcester Music Awards, was chosen as a finalist in the 12th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards, and toured with pop star Aaron Carter and American Idol winner Lee DeWyze earlier this year.
Look for My Silent Bravery to make upcoming guest appearances on the nationally syndicated radio program, Art of The Song, the popular Voice of America radio show, Border Crossings and the UK-based cutting edge pod cast, Bridge the Atlantic, with more special media appearances to be announced shortly.
