INTERNATIONAL singer-songwriter Don Mescall has released a brand new single for the summer, aptly titled Sunshine Girl.
The Irish star, who hails from Limerick but now lives in London, recounts writing the song for his daughter Eve some years ago, but only recently rediscovered it whilst going through his back-catalogue during lockdown.
The song, recorded and produced by Doug Lancio in Nashville, is vibrant, with shades of Pop, Indie and Contemporary Country.
“It’s a song that will make the perfect soundtrack for days at the beach, barbeques and summer nights, as the world starts to return to some normality,” his management explain.
Anticipating the release this month, Mescall said: “Delighted to finally release ‘Sunshine Girl’ written for my own sunshine girl, my daughter Eve.
“I’ve been fortunate to spend lots of time with her since the lockdown began. She’s really helped me through this challenging time.”
The launch of the new single follows the singer/songwriter’s tremendous success in Canada earlier this month – where CMA Award-winning artist Laurie LeBlanc featured six Mescall tracks on his new album, When It’s Right, It’s Right.
The debut single The Bigger The Better, which featured Mescall on the track and the video, made the top five most played country songs in Canada earlier this year.
LeBlanc joins a whole host of International artists that have had success from Mescall’s tracks through the years, from Rascal Flatts and Lonestar, to Cliff Richard and Backstreet Boys.
Closer to home, Mescall’s songs have been recorded by Irish artists including Ronan Keating, Sharon Corr, Aslan, Eleanor Shanley, Brian Kennedy, Frances Black and The High Kings.
Mescall is also in the process of working on his next studio album, Seven Setting Suns, which is planned for release in early 2021.
