Two Ways Home & Joey Clarkson collaborate for ‘One More For The Road’
We’re excited to announce that our Country Release Friday pick with MAM Roots this week is ‘One More For The Road’. The track features Canadian-born Clarkson, Anglo/Austrian duo Two Ways Home, and Clarkson’s British husband, Peter Dixon – a serving member of Her Majesty’s forces. ‘One More For The Road’ is about long-lost friends being reunited and is available now to buy or stream on all major platforms.
Inspired by the divide caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the collaborators thought it ironic, yet fitting, that they originally hail from different corners of the earth. The song pays early tribute to the day when lockdown restrictions are entirely lifted.
Clarkson stated, “‘One More For The Road’ was born out of our frustration at the 2020 lockdown, and – instead of honing in on the negative aspects of life in lockdown – focuses on looking forward to the days we can all go back out and spend time with friends that we might have lost touch with. It’s a feel good song to sing along to at the top of your lungs.”
“The track is an upbeat, harmony-driven, road trip anthem that pairs well with artists like Lady A, Mumford and Sons, Keith Urban and Gone West.” commented Lewis Fowler, one half of Two Ways Home.
To engage fans with the release, while keeping in line with current social restrictions, the group are holding a youtube/twitch party on the day of their release, which will include games, quiz questions, some live music performances, special guests and the chance for participants to ask the foursome questions about their new single. For more information, go to www.joeyclarkson.com or www.twowayshome.com.
Moreover, the group has partnered with Aston Microphones to bring their fans a live, acoustic video performance of ‘One More For The Road’, which will be released on Youtube in the week following it’s official release.
One to watch, Joey Clarkson charted the top five on the iTunes UK Country charts in July for her collaborative release ‘If You Want Me To’ with British country artist, Louise Parker. Joey Clarkson also recently released her Album: The Year That Never Happened, which now more than ever has taken on a second meaning.
Following their tour last year, Two Ways Home were crowned Caffè Nero “Artist of the Month” and have accumulated over 120k plays on their playlists, on top of 80k streams on Spotify for their debut album ‘Break The Silence’ which was released in February 2020. Two Ways Home are songwriters Lewis Fowler and Isabella Mariee who have helped the British country music scene grow by nurturing events like The Round Up and help give fellow musicians a new platform to perform and get noticed.
Both Clarkson and Two Ways Home have made an effort to stay connected with their fans throughout this uncertain time by engaging through socials and embracing the live streaming world.
