Americana Highways presents this premiere of Everett Wren’s song “Rebirth,” from his forthcoming album, Porchlight, due to be available on May 20. The album was produced, engineered, and mixed by Wren with additional engineering by Charlie Kramsky. Final mixing and mastering was done by Andrew Oedel at Ghost Hit Recording. Wren began performing in Branson with his family’s band (the Peterson Family Band) when he was 4; and is an Arkansas state fiddle champion and performed in the film Frank & Jesse, starring Rob Lowe, Randy Travis and the late Bill Paxton.
“Rebirth” is Everett Wren on lead vocals, mandolin, drums, percussion, electric and acoustic guitar; Taylor Turner on upright bass; Kimberly Zielnicki on fiddle and harmony vocals; Nathan Quiring on organ; and Jimmy Leftwich on harmony vocals.
The arrangement of Wren’s songs allows each instrument a moment in the limelight, and the songs tell modern stories of woe. Social media, television, videos everywhere we turn — a song like this one offers a lifeline when you’re sinking in a artificial quicksand eroding your self confidence. Something that’s all too easy to do these days. Turn off the screen, fine your rebirth.
This song tells a story of someone struggling to discover their own self esteem while deferring to the drama of characters on television. — Everett Wren
