The new studio version of "Bleeding Orange" comes out on Tuesday, June 4th but you can jump on it here and download it today for FREE!
With a rhythmic guitar line strewn with distorted bass to let you know this will be a grave topic, Tamkin builds up to the soaring “I learned to fly just to find my way home.” In a unique blend of monarch butterfly migration set to a Petty-esque vocal and song styles, “Bleeding Orange” will touch your wounded, driving soul. As we all strive for something beautiful, and while just as often we unexpectedly collide into a proverb windshield, this incredibly original song will be universally resonant. - AmericanaHighways.org
I wrote the lyrics to "Bleeding Orange" at The Crucible Recording Studio in Boulder, CO as my friend Tim King worked on different beats, chord progressions and samples. He flew in from his home town of Cedar Rapids, IA where he recorded and co-produced my last studio EP with Dick Prall.
While placing the finishing touches on "Bleeding Orange" we asked Dick Prall to come back and add his magic. It didn't take long for him to start recording himself inhaling into the microphone to mimic butterfly wings. I'm truly grateful to work with both of these talented musicians & songwriters. A special thanks to Tyler Stück for playing and supplying a bunch of ideas on drums, to Vince Di Pasquale at vdpstudios.com for mastering this puppy and to my good friend Ted “Tedbanger” Mielas for designing the artwork!
