January 10, 2005
ASCAP, the leading performance rights organization for
songwriters, has added Houston, TX modern rock act Southern
Backtones to the list of talented songwriters featured in their
Audio Portrait series. The Southern Backtones are an exciting blend
of raw brit-influenced rock with roots planted firmly in Texas.
Supporting a new album, a continually growing fan base and mounting
critical praise, the band will embark on a hard-core performance
rotation for 2005.
The ASCAP audio portrait is a unique format created by
BEHINDtheBEAT.com, which uses state of the art technology and
production techniques to craft profiles of artists in the context of
their newly released material. Listeners are able to hear the artist
discuss the underlying foundation behind the songs and music. The
addition of ASCAP’s Audio Portrait is a compliment to the Southern
Backtones’ promotional efforts in supporting their latest release.
Dan Workman, most noted for his work with Beyonce, Destiny’s Child
and ZZ Top, produced the self-titled album.
Attracting attention from radio, print and online media, the
Southern Backtones have remained in the Modern Rock Top Ten on
garageband.com for months. With performance dates through February,
retail placement and promotional efforts underway, Southern
Backtones is heating up to be the favorite indie modern rock release
for 2005. Upcoming performance dates include Houston, Dallas, Austin
and Galveston, TX. For more information check out
