Small Town Titans Unveils ‘Dragonfly’ Single, Video

Independent rock act Small Town Titans unveiled this week some of its most powerful music to date.

The band unveiled its new single ‘Dragonfly,’ which is a tribute to front man Phil Freeman’s mother, who lost her three-year battle with cancer last year.  The song is a simple yet powerful tune that features Freeman alone on guitar singing his heartfelt tribute to his mother in a dimly lit studio setting.

Freeman explained the inspiration for the song and its title in a recent interview, saying that dragonflies held special meaning for his mother, adding it was also meant to bring solace to anyone else who has ever lost a loved one due to illness.

“This song was written for my mother,” Freeman said.  “She passed away in February of 2017 after a three-year battle with cancer. She loved dragonflies which happen to have deep spiritual significance in many traditions and cultures, representing love, freedom of spirit and compassion. She embodied all of these qualities…The intent of this song is to celebrate her life and bring a little light and love to anyone who may be dealing with the grief of losing someone to illness. She was and is an amazing soul, and I hope this song captures a tiny glimmer of her spirit for the person listening to it.” ‘

Small Town Titans Breathes New Life Into ‘Grinch’ With New Single

Small Town Titans is giving audiences a “grinchy” new present this holiday season.

The York, PA-based band recently debuted the video for its take on the classic movie tune ‘You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch,’ which features the band performing the song in a dimly lit studio setting. The band’s take on this holiday standard is easily one of the most standout takes on the work that has ever been composed, and perhaps the best take on the song to date because of its ability to truly capture the essence of the Grinch before he turned good.

The band originally debuted the video, which was recorded at Springwood Productions, via Loudwire on Dec. 1. Audiences can see the band’s video and hear the song now here and via Patreon, a direct to fan social media platform on which fans can donate to videos’ creation and in turn have their names noted in the videos’ credits.  Audiences can also download the single now here.

Drummer Johnny Ross said of the band’s take on the song that the band had performed it in the past, adding that those performances played at least partly into this arrangement’s creation.

“We wanted to do something different for the holiday season this year, so we decided to revisit ‘You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” a tune that we had covered for holiday shows in the past,” Ross said. “Other than the Misfits, We really haven’t heard a rock band of any kind cover this song. We rearranged our take on it together and created a dark, bluesy, sinister version, and we are very proud of the result, captured live in the studio.”

Small Town Titans Partners With Military Vet For New Single, Benefit Fundraiser

Small Town Titans is paying tribute to America’s men and women in uniform with a new acoustic take on its latest single ‘Too Much To Dream.’

The song is based on a poem written by a military veteran that was sent to the band. The veteran’s name is Don Mattox, and the poem’s title ‘Chemical Dream Catcher.’  According to a press release, the song was born because Mattox wanted to turn the poem into a song, and asked the band if it wanted to use his poem to craft a song.

The end result is the new acoustic composition that audiences can hear now via the band’s official YouTube channel.

The song’s full studio take is currently expected to be released Nov. 11, 2017—Veteran’s Day.

In anticipation of the song’s full studio release, the band recently launched a PledgeMusic campaign, allowing audiences to pre-order the song’s full-studio release along with a companion video.  The initial money raised from the campaign–$10,000—will be used to record the song and develop its companion video. After that, all money raised through the single’s sales will benefit charities chosen by Mattox and the band.

The release of the new single in both its acoustic and full studio version is a positive not just for the band but also for regional PTSD support groups. The website toomuchtodream.org has even been purchased with the aim of using it to create and monitor a network of local PTSD organizations nationwide.
