Devin Dawson’s The Pink Slip EP — Available Now!

Devin Dawson‘s The Pink Slip EP is available now.

Talking about his new music, Devin says, “I want to be honest and vulnerable and take the next step, because I always want to be creating music that’s fresh and different from anything I’ve released before.”

When it comes to the tracks on The Pink Slip EP, Devin shares, “There are definitely vibes on this EP that I wouldn’t peg for myself, but I like the unexpected nature of doing things that people don’t see coming. I’m always trying to reinvent the wheel, every single day. I will always be a dark horse, but I have come a long way from the person I was, and I understand more of what it means to be an artist. I’m still in black and white, but the background is a little brighter now.”

The 6 song EP features the tracks, “Range Rover,” “I Got a Truck,” “Not On My Watch,” “Whatever Forever Is,” “He Loved Her, and “Who’s Gonna Hold Ya.”

Devin admits that his process of making music has changed over the years, “I used to write songs for me to get through something, but I have more people in mind now. So if you’re still in that place where you’re trying to get somewhere – if you’re still in that first quarter mile? Just know that if I can do it, you can do it.”

To celebrate the release of The Pink Slip EP, Devin held a streaming event that featured him answering questions from fans, sharing stories about the EP, and playing tracks off of The Pink Slip with his band–something that Devin hadn’t done in a while do to quarantine conditions.

Check out the virtual experience right here (starts at the 8:22 mark)…

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
