New York, NY — (November 15, 2010) – Snagging more than half of the polls, critically acclaimed soul-tinged rock outfit Graffiti6, wins mtvU Freshman and gears up for “Stare into the Sun” to join regular rotation on mtvU, MTV’s 24-hour college network, starting Monday, November 15th, 2010. The single’s landslide vote to #1 on the weekly competition, further secures an already internationally adored track. It was just featured in a spot on this season’s premiere episode of Grey’s Anatomy in September, with two more features quick to follow: “Calm the Storm” will be in CSI NY on November 12th, and Angels will walk to “Stare Into the Sun” in Victoria’s Secret CBS fashion special on December 1st.
Recently stateside for New York City’s annual CMJ Music Festival, Jamie Scott and Tommy D headlined two shows for packed houses at downtown’s Rockwood Music Hall and Alphabet Lounge.
“I’m a huge fan of sad songs that sound cheerful and that description fits this song perfectly. The video can’t hide the exuberance of this sound, it just tries to keep up with bright, colorful backgrounds; occasionally matching up to the lyrics amongst a midst of nonsensical scenarios. It’s very well done.”
– The Freshman, mtvU
“Crooner Scott is arguably one of contemporary’s music’s most underrated talents and is probably only months away from becoming the American media’s new obsession.”
Since the band has won over a New York crowd they have been busy SELLING OUT gigs all over Europe. Up next for the guys is an overseas trip to Los Angeles as they will perform on December 6th at Ghenghis Cohen and then at Hotel Café on December 7th!
