Morty Shallman is back and ready to heat up the Summer with his new single “Halo” (Summer Remix), for your listening pleasure. The vibrant song is filled with melodic hooks and enticing beats which will have you dancing around in no time. Creating his own blend of Electro-Pop meets Indie, Shallman has been making music on his own terms… and he shows no sign of slowing down. The new single is sleek and seductive, noteworthy and charming, making Shallman a name to remember.
His last EP, “Pop Fiction,” has garnered over One Million Plays, and this year he was deemed LA’s #1 Indie Artist by Reverbnation.In addition to writing, producing and performing his own music for his publishing company, Flying Bed Music/ASCAP, Morty has collaborated with a variety of songwriters, DJs and Producers. Morty co-wrote former Nickelodeon TV Star, Drake Bell’s hit song, Highway to Nowhere, which was featured on The Drake and Josh Show, Zoey 101, Bell’s first solo CD, Telegraph, and on several top-selling Nickelodeon/BMG soundtrack compilations.
Morty states of the track:
“Halo – Summer Remix is one of those happy accidents that occurs when you take a fresh look at an older track and something new and totally awesome emerges. The original version was released in 2013 as part of my Halo – EP and had a retro “New Romantic” 80s vibe. While the video for the tune got over a quarter of a million views on YouTube, and actually graced the YT homepage for a minute (when that still mattered), I always thought it would be fun to try different approaches to this song, which is a crowd favorite at my solo shows. So, a few months back, I took it to my “Pop Fiction” co-producer, Steve Dresser, ostensibly just to clean up the old mix. In no time we devised a brand new groove and sonic direction and there was simply no going back. The result is a sexy summer pop song with a fresh new sound that’s perfect for a sun-soaked day at the beach or wind-swept sail up the California Coast. I really hope people have as much fun listening to it as Steve and I did reimagining it for the Summer of 2018.”
Where will Morty Shallman go next? We’re eager to hear more of the intriguing artist.
