Arizona singer/songwriter, Christopher Shayne, has long been regarded as one of the most promising torchbearers of southern rock. Today, via a premiere with Puregrain Audio, Shayne further solidified that reputation with the release of “Burn Me Down” – a good old-fashion romper perfect for anchoring your summer playlist. “Burn Me Down” is full of soulful vocals and heavy blues guitars that set up an infectious country-tinged hard rock chorus that was built to fill out cavernous arenas from coast to coast. You can stream “Burn Me Down” now on YouTube and Spotify and the single is available for purchase on Apple and all of your other favorite services as well.

In case you’re unfamiliar with Christopher Shayne, his combination of southern rock, heavy country and modern alternative has been garnering the attention of radio and audiences alike since the release of his debut full-length Turning Stones in 2015. Shayne was hand-selected to open up on a few dates for ZZ Top and his talent attracted drummer Matt Sorum (Guns & Roses, Velvet Revolver) and guitarist Ben Moody (Evanescence) to join him in the studio on his latest collection of songs. Christopher’s strong vocals, energetic live stage presence, and timeless songwriting have resulted in an engaging blend of classic southern and blues-influenced rock; complete with modern tones and contemporary twists.
