The Young Presidents Release New Music Video For “Loner”

Diving between Alternative and Country music, The Young Presidents is back with their new music video for “Loner” – a song about moving forward even when life seems to be against you. In this case, a struggling young dancer decides to leave her mentor and be independent, her every move coinciding with the lyrics.

A while back there was a band called The Young Presidents, they were a dynamic songwriting duo comprised of guitarist/vocalist Jake Hertzog and bassist/vocalist Mitchell Kaneff with influences heavily rooted in classic rock and 90’s alternative. To complement their sound, they enlisted guest artists to record on their album, Coalition, including the legendary Ivan Neville, who performed on their previous video, “Time.”

Looking to round out their live shows, Hertzog and Kaneff turned to Broadway where they found vocalist Daniel Jackson, aka Djax, who was just finishing his role in the international production of “American Idiot.” Next they hired drummer Cinque Ubangi Kemp – and The Young Presidents became a fully realized rock band!

The band’s newest album release, the eclectic “FIREHORSE,” is unique for it’s style: side A on the album is the “electric” side, recorded and mixed at Room 17 Studios, and side B is the “acoustic” side, recorded at MKM Studios and mixed at Rubber Tracks (2 more songs were added as bonus tracks for the digital and CD releases). Their first offering from the album is the single “Loner,” its sound perfectly suited to both the rock and the acoustic.
