Today’s song is “Miss California” by Deadfellow. This Philadelphia group is headed by lead singer and songwriter is Hayden Sammak an artist known in the local Philly music scene for a few years.
This project of his was started about a year ago and has been compared to the likes of Mark Lanegan vocals (Screaming Trees).
When I first heard this track I was instantly hooked on this slow guitar ballad. Sammak’s vocals are intriguing and draw you in with a first listen. The addition of horns and trumpets paints musical landscape with hills and valleys taking you to the sunny coast.
This track is off his upcoming album entitled MESCALIFORNIA: A California Dream which drops on June 23rd.
He was recently featured on Philadelphia’s XPN’s Song of the Week this past January.
