Way Out Mr Epstein 

It's exciting times for rock 'n roll musician Gordon Epstein once again. His latest single, The Cutest Little Baby In Rock 'n Roll Usa, due for release on 16 February 2018, is set to be played on a new radio station in the UK, called Way Out Radio. To quote 'Way Out Radio is an online station that brings together with a diverse mix of music, the station reflects our passion for new music and undiscovered gems! We work closely with both local and international bands to give them an outlet for their music.'

When Way Out Radio received the song they replied: 'Many thanks for sending! ... Oh, my word! ... My heart skipped a beat when I first played this track for I love the retro feel that you've instilled into it - it's a simplistic song that - carried by your vocal supremacy - just screams pure talent!

So it's onwards and upwards for Gordon Epstein as he reaches for the toppermost of the rockermost folks!

 

Gordon Epstein Talks About His New Single 'The Cutest Little Baby In Rock 'n Roll USA' 

Gordon Epstein talks about his new song, due for release on 16 February 2018: 'I'm reading a book at the moment, written by Keith Richards, called 'Life'. It's kind of a hobby of mine to read biographies and autobiographies of musicians. So one afternoon I take a nap, which I sometimes do, and when I wake up there's this Rolling Stones kinda tune in my head. Then I thought 'How'm I going to find words for this tune now?' It's easier when you write it all together in one go. But if the tune comes to you in your sleep, you don't have a choice. I really wanted to contact Mick Jagger and say 'Hi. I've got this tune. You are the only one who can write the words for it. When do we meet?' But I knew that wouldn't happen. I nearly jammed with his brother, Chris, in Munich in 2008, but I couldn't find the venue. Anyway, that's another story. So I made up some words to try and fit the tune, after working on it for a few days. The end result isn't really a Rolling Stones kind of song. It's more like....well something else. Anyway, it's got a vibe that's not too bad. I hope people like it.'

'The Cutest Little Baby In Rock 'n Roll USA' is due for release on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Apple Music, Simfy Africa, Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, and Pandora. As well as at some other stores in various countries
