“Misery (Official Acoustic Version)”
“Misery” in Motion.
WASHINGTON D.C.: Alternative, Pop, Rock band YellowTieGuy releases their third single from their forthcoming album The Inevitable Unexpected. “Misery,” will be available on all major music platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, etc.,) at midnight EST January 22, 2021. The band will debut the track during a Facebook broadcast on January 21, 2021 at 7:00PM EST where fans can listen, ask questions, and hear more about the recording experience from the perspectives of each band member.
YellowTieGuy is truly thankful for the support of our friends, family, fans, members of Team TieGuy, our supporters our Patreon, and so much more. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without your ongoing love, support, and encouragement. We wanted to offer up the Official Acoustic Version as one of hopefully many gifts we can give to show our appreciation.
“Misery” at its core is about the struggle between doing what feels right for yourself and doing right by others. Like many YellowTieGuy songs it seeks to encourage empathy by exploring multiple points of view using a traditional pop-style song structure, rock & roll rhythms and melodies, with thought provoking lyrics.. “I want anything except what’s right for me if what I want should cause you misery,” would be a heartfelt sentiment that under any circumstance would change the world in a positive way if more individuals would put it into practice. In today’s COVID-19 environment, it might be compared to how wearing a mask in public is not merely about protecting ourselves, but being thoughtful towards the health and safety of others who might be more at risk of complications from exposure.
When YellowTieGuy first began recording songs for The Inevitable Unexpected, it did so in the hopes of creating an EP that celebrated the diversity of artistic talent throughout the Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia region known as the DMV music scene. It was inspired by the Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways film that was featured on HBO and the music from the same album. “We hoped to be able to record in multiple studios with a variety of producers and engineers throughout the region, feature album art from local artists, and feature other musical artists or vocalists from the DMV as guests on the various tracks,” says YellowTieGuy frontman and vocalist Daniel Warren Hill. “Before we could get any momentum on the project, we had to scale that back a bit because of COVID-19, and we were only able to release two songs (“Information” and ”I Cry”) where we had the opportunity to work with a producer inside their own studio spaces.”
The band would have the pleasure of recording “Misery” in the home studio of YellowTieGuy keyboardist Kyle Crosby, who happens to be the former Sound of Music’s (Richmond, VA) primary Studio B engineer. The track is mixed by Kenny Kingsborough who owns Harbour Red Studios in Baltimore, Maryland; and mastered by YTG’s own Daniel Warren Hill, who also has a background in audio production. The band plans on continuing to produce the remaining songs from The Inevitable Unexpected in similar fashion and release them every few months until all the tracks are completed before launching the full album, which has grown from EP to album since the band continues to write additional songs that continue to highlight the theme derived from the project’s title. YellowTieGuy hopes they can continue to adapt their plans to include more of the Washington D.C. area’s incredible talent in all aspects of music and entertainment throughout future releases.
YellowTieGuy was founded by singer/guitarist Daniel Warren Hill in 2009, and is joined by former Crooked Crow bassist Jamie Rasmussen, former Dreamscapes Project drummer/percussionist Eric Sanford, and former Copper Sails keyboardist Kyle Crosby. YellowTieGuy jokes they are the world’s first “Discount Super Group,” given their individual successful musical careers that have provided them with nearly a century of writing, recording, and performing music while performing around the world and working with Grammy nominated producers and engineers. YellowTieGuy promises they are “almost as good as your favorite band.”
