Rollicking blast of country-soul rock n’ roll arrives on download/streaming platforms today Nashville singer-songwriter Michael Jay Cresswell has unveiled his anthemic new single Music In The Streets. The new single from the versatile artist celebrates the joyous power of music with Stax-soul piano and sax alongside honky-tonk guitars and a singalong refrain.
“Music In The Streets was written by myself, world-famous sax player John Heinrich, producer James Howell and Kevin Richardson,” explains Cresswell. “The songs’ inspiration came from meeting Country DJ Baylen Leonard and then seeing a picture he posted on his blog titled ‘Music in the streets, music in the windows’. That line stuck with me and gave me the bones of the song. We recorded it in the UK, then got Duane Scott (Stevie Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham, Wings) to executive produce it for that classic Nashville sound.”
Music has taken Michael Jay Cresswell all over the world. A celebrated songwriter with over 100 professional songs to his name, he’s lived, recorded and performed in London, Nashville, Los Angeles, Le Mans and Cambodia.
