POOR NAMELESS BOY RELEASES BRAND NEW SINGLE CATCH UP AND SLOW DOWN
TRACK TO APPEAR ON 2019 EP
PERFORMING AT UP+DT FESTIVAL IN EDMONTON
ON OCTOBER 6th
Toronto, ON – Friday, September 28, 2018 – Poor Nameless Boy – singer-songwriter, Joel Henderson – leaves a piece of himself on stage every time he performs. His mellow sound is personal; touring honestly on love, life, and our changing hearts in a busy world. This shines through on his brand new single, Catch Up And Slow Down – a song that reflects on the importance of human connection in a world that often seems too fast-paced to allow for such moments. Released today, the track comes from Poor Nameless Boy’s forthcoming EP, which is due out in 2019 on Chronograph Records. Listen here.
“‘How have you been?’ I ask. ‘Good. Busy’ is the answer I receive most often,” reflects Henderson. “In my heart of hearts, I want time to move slower, especially in true moments of connection. Drinking coffee with best friends. Nurturing a long-distance relationship. Slow down the busyness. Find time to truly connect with those most important to you. Sometimes that person might even be someone you see every day. The simplest lyric from Catch Up And Slow Down sums it up best; Give your heart to me. It’s been too long.”
Often described as a lighter version of Noah Gunderson and Donovan Woods, with the wispy sounds of Gregory Alan Isakov, Poor Nameless Boy has touched the hearts and ears of industry and music lovers alike since the release of his latest album, Bravery. The record hit #2 on the folk radio charts, and album track, River & Trees, was in CBC’s Top 50 songs for 2016. Henderson’s skilled lyrical ability earned him a spot as a semi-finalist in the 2018 Canadian Songwriting Competition, and a Global Music Award Bronze Medal.
The Regina-based artist has also been making quite a presence internationally, with music lovers in Europe, Australia, and the U.S. taking notice. Leave Myself Behind, his piano ballad duet with Saskatoon’s Denise Valle, has over 500k streams on Spotify in the GAS market, and he has had stellar appearances at Reeperbahn, Australian Music Week, The Great Escape, and more.
Stay tuned for more from Poor Nameless Boy in the coming months, as he gears up for his next musical offering!
