Notes from an Intern: Let's Review! Part 3

Hi guys!

I’m back for the next section of our mini series on Deep South’s clients' singles! Today I’m going to be reviewing Kasey Tyndall’s “Bottle and the Bible”, Lainey Wilson’s “Workin’ Overtime”, and Branan Murphy’s “My Life”.

This song from Kasey Tyndall, “Bottle & the Bible” is one of the first songs I got an inside look at through Deep South Entertainment. Within my first week of becoming the summer intern, I got a look at the making of the music video (which I talk about in my first post). This makes the song a special one for me, as I know a bit of the backstory behind Kasey’s lyrics. With that being said, this song is an emotional one for sure but also empowering. If you find yourself in a sticky situation “Bottle & the Bible” is a great one to listen to!

The second song I checked out after joining Deep South was Lainey Wilson’s “Workin’ Overtime” because her music video had just been released on CMT. Out of all of the songs that I’m reviewing I would say that this song is my favorite. I am biased towards country music but this song is both spunky and relatable for a range of people. “Workin’ Overtime” is the perfect summer song with a catchy, upbeat melody. Be sure to check out the music video too, it’s definitely worth the watch!

Both of the first two songs have reflective lyrics that represent their respective artists. Branan Murphy continues this trend with his Christian pop single, “My Life”. Branan’s song is also upbeat with an inspirational vibe. He does a good job of reaching a wide audience by making this song humble and relatable. The music video for “My Life” was just released so be sure to check it out!

That concludes today’s post. I’ll be finishing up our mini series in the near future so be sure to stay connected for that. Have a great week!

Notes from an Intern: Let's Review! Part 2

I'm back again – with another great single! The song I checked out was Vienna Teng’s “Level Up”. I would describe Teng’s single as dynamic. She uses a mix of onomatopoeias and repetition with her lyrics near the beginning to add a great blend to the music itself. The single starts out slow but picks up pace making it the perfect addition to your workday playlist. When first listening to this song be sure to watch the music video, as it really adds to the empowering message! I’ve embedded the video, as well as the song on Spotify, here.

That’s all for now. Come back soon for some more reviews of fabulous singles!

Notes from an Intern: Let's Review! Part 1

Hi everyone,

For the next couple of weeks I’m going to focus the Notes from an Intern series on Deep South’s own artists. Specifically, I’m going to take some time and review a single from each of our fabulous clients! I’m super excited to listen to the range of genres that the singles come from. Follow along and feel free to comment with your favorite Deep South single!

To start, I’m going to review Parmalee’s “Hotdamalama”. This single, comparable to Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise”, is the perfect summer song. Its spunky beat and fast-paced lyrics are the missing piece to any windows-down, wind-blown car or boat ride. Although it’s a bit hard to understand the boys’ words at first, I promise if you stick it on repeat you’ll be singing along in no time. Check it out on Spotify here!

Happy Independence Day!


Hi everyone!

The Fourth of July is tomorrow! I hope you all have the day off and exciting things planned with family and friends. If you’re in need of an American-themed playlist for your BBQ cookout or fireworks gathering, look no further. I've created an Independence Day playlist on Spotify with some of my country favorites, just for you. It lasts about an hour so feel free to stick it on repeat!

You can stream the playlist here

Happy Independence Day!

Other fan favorites include Lynyrd Skynyrd at Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek on Friday the 29th and Glee’s own Lea Michele will bring her tour to the Durham Performing Arts Center on the 30th.

Our very own Deep South the Bar will also be jumping in the mix with artists; Foxture, Porch Light Apothecary and Inner Prolific, to name a few. We'll also be open before and after every show at Red Hat Amphitheater, if you want to grab a brew! This weekend in particular Red Hat Amphitheater will be hosting the Dropkick Murphy’s with Flogging Molly on the 19th, as well as Walk the Moon with American Aquarium on the 23rd.

That’s all for now! Stay connected for next week’s Independence Day playlist and more upcoming concerts!

Notes From An Intern: Meet Sydney!

Hi all! My name is Sydney Parker and I'm Deep South Entertainment’s Summer 2018 intern! I’ll be taking over the Notes from an Intern series from Ali.

First, just a little bit about me! I am a Raleigh native who is currently a sophomore at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina. At Furman, I am pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in both Business Administration and Studio Arts with a concentration in Graphic Design. With a love for organizing, my dream is to eventually become an event planner.

I have always been a country music fan and grew up listening to 94.7 QDR. During my internship at Deep South this summer, I am super excited to learn about event planning basics as well as get a close look at the inner workings of the music industry.

During the first week of my internship I got the chance to go behind the scenes of a music video shoot. Kasey Tyndall teamed up with Modest Giant to work on the upcoming music video for her next single “Bottle & The Bible”. It was so interesting for me to see all of the work that goes into making a finished music video. Everyone really has to work together on a variety of tasks. This particular shoot included tasks such as hanging up blackout curtains, creating the scene with lighting, and handling flight delays, to name a few. Check out a sneak peek on our Facebook page and stay connected to find out more about the release!

Have a great week!
