When it seems like someone’s always, getting in your face, shooting up the place, making you lose your faith in the human race. Just remember…there are good people everywhere!”
— Bob Malone on the release of his new song and video of GOOD PEOPLE
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 23, 2019 — Singer/songwriter Bob Malone, dubbed a “keyboard wizard” by The New Yorker, releases his new song and video for GOOD PEOPLE on Tuesday, July 23rd.
The song is Malone’s most radio-friendly and accessible track in his long career, both as an accomplished solo artist and as keyboardist for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend John Fogerty. It harkens back to the classic piano-driven pop-rock melodies of Billy Joel, Elton John, and Leon Russell in their prime.
“The lyrics to GOOD PEOPLE really speak to the world we live in today. The news would have us believe that we’re all divided and at each other’s throats constantly, but in tours across America and around the world, Bob has found that there truly are GOOD PEOPLE everywhere, and he’s brilliantly put that sentiment into this powerful song. I promise that if you listen to it once, you won’t be able to get it out of your head,” said Burke Allen, Malone’s manager, and former Billboard award-winning radio Music Director, programmer, consultant, and station owner.
Malone said of GOOD PEOPLE “My wife – the “Karen” in this song – is the most empathetic soul I have ever known. Blessed with the gifts to be and do almost anything she wanted, she chose to dedicate her life to helping those less fortunate. And though she is strong, sometimes she loses all hope. This song is just my way of reminding her that she is among the many unsung heroes who walk among us, quietly making the world a better place.”
GOOD PEOPLE is being released to Adult Contemporary, AAA and Non-Commercial radio outlets in the United States and Canada on July 23rd by Delta Moon Records via PlayMPE with additional distribution to film and television music supervisors. The GOOD PEOPLE music video was directed by Hashim Thomas was filmed on the rooftops and subways of Los Angeles. A companion lyric video will also drop this week to digital video platforms.
Bob Malone has a mixture of national media appearances, solo tour dates, and dates with John Fogerty in the U.S. and Europe throughout the rest of 2019. Dates and more info are available at www.bobmalone.com.
