Here’s a song for those days when nothing seems to go right. Bruce Sudano cuts right to the heart of misery with “With Him.” A cool take on folky blues with some sweet melodic turns and a woeful delivery. The accompanying video is pure heartache and reflects the song’s mournful message to a T. The song is a sneak peek from his upcoming EP, Stories of Our Lives Vol. 1, out in 2020.
“’With Him’ is a real life drama of learning to let go. I wrote it about the break up of a friend’s long term relationship. It’s a heartbreak, told from the point of view of the one scorned,” shares Sudano. “It was recorded in Brooklyn at Creamery Studios with some sweet guitar work from Adam Landry out of Nashville and produced by Hollis Brown vocalist, Mike Montali. The video was shot and directed by Norwegian filmmaker Erik Bergamini. Thanks for watching…”
Now that singer-songwriter Sudano has helped bring Summer: The Donna Summer Musical about his late wife to Broadway, he is back to, as the song says, where he once belonged. Sudano’s forthcoming EP Stories of Our Lives Vol. 1 marks the latest chapter in his ongoing exploration of the human condition. The ever evolving singer songwriter continues to musically blur the lines between folk, blues, pop and soul with a poetry that touches a nerve.
Splitting his time between Los Angeles and Europe, Sudano increasingly makes performing live a centerpiece of his musical expression. “Songs don’t really come to life until you sing them in front of an audience”, he says. Appearing in venues from folk clubs to rock halls and theatres, he recently joined The Zombies lead singer Colin Blunstone on a sold out tour of the UK as well as appearing at the legendary Philadelphia Folk Festival.
Two subsequent singles, “In the Garden of November” and “The Mountain” are slated for video and single release before the complete Stories of Our Lives Vol. 1 arrives in the spring of 2020.
