Jarod Clemons (New Jersey), Taylor James Davis (Indiana), Bobby Mahoney (New Jersey), Evan Rotella (Canada) and Jake Thistle (New Jersey) have teamed up with Swiss singer-songwriter Marcos Cabanas, for the release of a new digital single titled Touring Song

To be released on February 11th 2022, the track is an ode to those musicians who miss life on the road as a result of the Covid pandemic. 

Cabanas penned the track after a brief conversation with Clemons in early 2021, which sparked talks of a potential overseas collaboration. The idea was brought to life later that same year, when Davis, Mahoney, Rotella, and Thistle were approached and expressed interest in the brewing project.

Released independently on digital platforms, the track also features instrumentation by Miami-based organist Beau Cornelius, Swiss bassist DeSurco, Spanish guitarist Chechu Díez, and Miami-based guitarist Brandon Rabi. 

Recorded in Niagara Falls (Canada), The Hague (Netherlands), Murcia (Spain), Geneva (Switzerland), Florida (USA), and New Jersey (USA).

Mixed by Marcos Cabanas & Jarod Clemons in Madrid (Spain), Geneva (Switzerland), and New Jersey (USA).

Mastered in Mies (Switzerland).
