Nashville-based singer-songwriter Johnny Gates release rousing and heartfelt new single Brooklyn Nights.

Johnny Gates is one of those rare artists that’s truly onto something. One listen into his so far meagre back catalogue and you’ll think he’s been honing his refined craft for years, and while fell for music as an adolescent, his affluence for an iconic sound out of the gate is second to none.

‘Brooklyn Nights’ is actually the first song that I wrote all by myself.” Johnny explains “It’s about a girl that I used to go to New York City with when I was younger… we would always stroll around Brooklyn together and dream up stories about our future, about us living together. We pictured it all happening, but it never did. And now, I can’t go back there without thinking about her. So I wrote this song about just that… Connecting a place to a person.”

Working with a very stripped back instrumental, brooklyn nights is an intimate and honest ode to loves past, balanced with the hopefulness of the future, which make for a perfect synergy of sound and narrative. Keep your eyes peeled for what’s next from this natural talents as he’s started his journey to the top.
