Singer-songwriter, Danny McGaw released his new single, “Hollywood” today from his album, Set Me Free due July 22 via Santa Barbara Records.
The upbeat song is what McGaw dubs, “a prayer for the dreamer” and reflects his journey from a young boy in Manchester, England to being discovered playing music on the boardwalk in Santa Monica. McGaw was surviving off of street performances when he was noticed by the legendary producer Terry Melcher (The Byrds, Beach Boys) who helmed his debut album.
“‘Hollywood’ is the hope and faith in us all,” said McGaw. “The video stars my son, Barlow McGaw, and it felt right to have him lip-sync to represent the child in all of us, who once had the space to dream of a life born in imagination. To walk alone trusting in a seemingly improbable destination born in imagination. ‘Hollywood’ is me, you, them, and us. Here’s to the child, and the dreamer in us all.”
Danny McGraw will kick-off his tour tomorrow, June 16 in Knoxville at the Tennessee Theatre concluding on August 27 in Atlanta at the Atlanta Symphony Hall with a one-off date on October 6 in Ames at Stephens Auditorium.
