Nettwerk is happy to announce the signing of Nashville-based singer, songwriter, artist, and producer Phillip LaRue to its label roster. His new EP Colorsis set for release September 16th. Today, he shares the title track, where elegant strings and delicate piano swell together with his vocals to ring out in a luminous release. “Colors” is available everywhere HERE.
“The song itself is about a painful experience when I initially gave up on the idea of love,” Phillip admits. “I fell in love, and it was different from what I expected. ‘Colors’ tries to capture the moment of infatuation and falling. I’m totally lost in the feeling, but I’m found in it as well. It’s the memory when a sunset takes your breath away. It’s how I feel about my wife. I tried to bottle the emotion and put it into a song.”
Sincerity remains one of his hallmarks, whether he’s in the spotlight or behind-the-scenes. As a songwriter, he has worked with a slew of renowned artists, including co-writing Tyler Farr’s #1 country smash “Whiskey in My Water,” as well as Jon Pardi’s hit single “Night Shift,” both of which were certified platinum. Most recently, he co-wrote and is featured on electronic pop artist Ocula’s “Green Willow.” He notably garnered a Dove Award in the category of “Song of the Year” for co-writing Tenth Avenue North’s “By Your Side.” Along the way, he landed syncs on shows like Virgin River, Grey’s Anatomy, Vampire Diaries, and Nashville to name a few,as well as campaigns for Apple, Volkswagen, McDonald’s, and Dignity Health. Simultaneously, he has shared four fan favorite solo albums, including Let The Road Pave Itself , You , The Meaning , and An Analog Digital Heart .
Collaborating with co-producer and co-writer Andrew Petroff, he carefully crafted what would become Colors. “I feel like this body of work has been sitting inside of me for so long,” he smiles. “I’m excited to watch it finally bloom.” As it does bloom, Philip forges his deepest connection yet.
Phillip LaRue joins Nettwerk’s expanding label roster, which also includes Passenger, Old Sea Brigade, Jon Bryant, Aisha Badru and Riley Pearce.
