by Missy Wolf / 123 days ago / Comments

Center Stage Magazine is excited to premiere Southbound 75's lyric video for their debut single "Not Ready To Say I'm Sorry Yet". Alt-country rockers Southbound 75, are a Tampa-based quintet. Since their inception in December of 2018, these immensely talented musicians, have already begun making a name for themselves.  Southbound 75 is quickly gaining more attention and have already been recognized as one of ReverbNation’s Top Emerging Country Act. 

Here is what lead songwriter Mark Lorenzo had to say about their debut single; “The whole song started with the first line, ‘what you are to me is a cell phone full of pissed off memories…’ and the whole song was done in an hour because it was true. I knew I was wrong but I wasn’t ready to admit it. I think that song just resonates well with our fans live. We always knew it was going to be the first single.” 

Southbound 75 plans to release their full debut album, Tales From The Black Swamp, later this summer. For more information on Southbound 75 and their debut release, please read the full press release below. ~Missy

“Not Ready To Say I’m Sorry Yet” introduces songwriter Mark Lorenzo’s ability to craft a cleverly written song about dealing with the immediate personal feelings born out of heartbreak, an established theme at the very core of many great country & rock songs. 

 

“The whole song started with the first line, ‘What you are to me is a cell phone full of pissed off memories…’ and the whole song was done in an hour because it was true. I knew I was wrong but I wasn’t ready to admit it. I think that song just resonates well with our fans live. We always knew it was going to be the first single.”

 

Southbound 75 was recently named as Best New Country Band by The Tampa Bay Musicians Network. This early nod of endorsement comes by way of the band’s lineup of seasoned professionals, led by singer/songwriter Mark Lorenzo, who is backed by bandmates Kevin Doris on strings, Vance Eskesen on bass, and Gregg Giacobbe on drums.

 

“We have really taken our time to record these songs,” Lorenzo explained. “What has happened is that we have created a kind of ‘best of’ album, even though this is our first official release as a band. These are really my favorite songs I have ever written!”

About Southbound 75:

Southbound 75’s story started when Radio Promotion legend Bill Scull heard lead songwriter Mark Lorenzo’s tune “Little Breakdown” for the first time at an ASCAP demo review session. Scull, who had worked in the industry for years, including with Clive Davis, singled him out, and signed Mark to his label, EO Records.  

 

Southbound 75 played their first show in December 2018 and have steadily made a name for themselves, having toured throughout their home state of Florida, and throughout the Midwest.

 

Lorenzo’s songs have been used on TV shows, sports programming, DVDs, Cartoons and more such as; “ESPN College Football;” “Shark” (CBS); “90210” (CW); “Threshold” (CBS); “Girlfriends” (CW) and “3lbs” on (CBS).
